Since Facebook announced its switch to Meta and its future plans to create a metaverse, the existing ones have gained popularity. The biggest racked up $ 100 million selling NFTs the week of November 22 and November 28.
The activity continues with these platforms such as The Sandbox, Decenterland, CryptoVoxels and Somnium Space. The one that has racked up the most so far is The Sandbox , which recently broke its record by selling a luxury yacht for $ 650,000. In this way, last week he collected 86 million of the 105.8 that the four added, that is, 80% of the profits. All these metaverses use the Ethereum currency as a means of payment, which is worth 92,786.67 Mexican pesos.
Decenterland was the second place, it has been dedicated to selling NFT of parcels and in a week they raised 15.5 million dollars. CryptoVoxels and Somnium Space added 2.6 million and 1.1 million respectively.
According to analysts, metaverses will be the key to driving the use of cryptocurrencies, which until now remain something quite niche. Bank of America Managing Director and Global Strategist Haim Israel said the metaverse is where “we are going to start using cryptocurrencies as currencies.”
