Blockchain Game Presales: Emojibles now live
As the blockchain game sector has matured, so – thankfully – have presales.
Previously a crude way of attempting to fund games, which may or may not be finished, developers now use pre-sales to build community and excitement about a game that’s pretty much ready to launch.
In that way, presales provide the first opportunity for fans to prove their commitment, as well as hopefully getting some exclusive in-game items and currency at a heavy discount.
Of course, the eventual value of such items remains uncertain, and no-one should buy into a presale in the expectation of making money.
Nevertheless, the ability to truly own items independent of the game that gives them context is something that only blockchain games can do.
This list will be regularly updated, so feel free to let us know if there are presales we should be adding.

The Sandbox (ETH)
The Sandbox will continue its fourth Land presale on 15 September, but this time you will only be able to purchase using its just-launched SAND ERC20 token.
The SAND token was launched on Binance and is now also available via Uniswap.
LAND prices will be offered at a 10% discount to public rates and the sale will run over four waves; one starting each day from 15 to 18 September.
To-date, The Sandbox has sold through all its LAND sales, raising over $1.5 million in the process.
