A digital avatar will be revealed to the holder 48 hours after it has been minted on OpenSea. Users can mint the avatar with any wallet they have access to.

Once available, one can select the avatar by navigating to Avatar Manager in The Sandbox dashboard. If the avatar has not been revealed after 48 hours, press the Refresh Metadata button on OpenSea and check again.

Users can still participate after the primary sale has concluded. They can access a secondary marketplace – OpenSea – to trade the avatar with a holder at the prevailing price.
