Your Sandbox is all set for you to use

To deploy your application to the Sandbox, simply copy the RPC from the dashboard and use it with your preferred development framework, such as Hardhat, Truffle, or Foundry.

You can also interact with the pre-deployed contracts that are available on the Sandbox you forked from. This allows you to test your application's compatibility with existing smart contracts.
