The Sandbox announced two major partnerships a few hours ago, and they are the primary catalysts behind SAND’s ongoing rally.

The team also announced that it had partnered with Knotfest and Slipknot to create the Knotverse.
Key levels to watch
The SAND/USD 4-hour chart is currently bullish as SAND recovers from its recent slump. The technical indicators show that SAND is no longer in a bearish trend.
The MACD line is above the neutral zone, indicating positive momentum for The Sandbox. The 14-day relative strength index of 63 shows that SAND could soon enter the overbought region if the bullish momentum continues.
At press time, SAND is trading at $2.989 per coin. If the rally continues, SAND could break past the first major resistance level at $3.116 before the end of the day. In the event of extended bullish performance, SAND could trade above $3.50 for the second time this month.
