Leading metaverse builder community SandStorm has released its highly anticipated “proposal and bid” platform. This metaverse construction market pairs brands with builders from top virtual worlds including Decentraland and The Sandbox, allowing brands to deploy assets and experiences on demand. Its decentralized approach aggregates the best builders to provide unparalleled quality and cost savings to brands pioneering the metaverse.
Similar to on-demand marketplaces like HomeAdvisor and Upwork, SandStorm has already become a hub for thousands of the world’s best metaverse builders to find work. By connecting brands, individual builders, and full development studios of all sizes, SandStorm provides an innovative solution to how legacy brands like Walmart, Panera, and McDonald’s will enter the open metaverse.
SandStorm CEO Steve McGarry said: “Physical location for work has become much less important for many of us over the last two years. At SandStorm, we believe the future of work will be primarily driven by an individual's skills and their ability to work on a team within the metaverse. As we move into a more digital society, asset creation skills for multiple virtual worlds showcased on a SandStorm profile will level the playing field for finding work.”
The SandStorm platform highlights builders based on Skills, Availability, Communication, Quality, Deadlines, and Team Cooperation. It can be analogized to building a dream home in the physical world, but instead of hiring one local real estate development firm, choosing the best architect in Korea, the best roofer in London, and the best electrician in Canada. Operating in the virtual world, brands can select contractors based on their portfolio of previous work.
