Cryptocurrency markets remain highly volatile as the bear market is in full effect. The good news is that in recent days, the market seems to have stabilized and continues to trade sideways as Bitcoin and Ethereum manage to hold support. With the current low prices, many Metaverse crypto coins are on sale, and those with long-term potential could show significant price growth during the next bull phase. Today we look at our pick of the top three Metaverse crypto coins with a market cap below $100 million to watch in July 2022.
Note: The list below is ordered by the current market capitalization, lowest to highest.
3. Illuvium (ILV) – $71 million
Launched in March 2021, Illuvium (ILV) is one of the most anticipated Metaverse crypto games built on the Ethereum blockchain. Illuvium is making an RPG-style game enabling users to explore their open world and capture deity-like creatures called Illuvials.
The game integrates the popular play-to-earn model enabling users to earn rewards by participating in the game’s ecosystem. Players can take on battles, complete quests, discover the secrets of its universe, and progress through the game’s extensive campaign.
Since Illuvium is built on the blockchain, users are provided with full ownership of in-game assets, and the in-game monsters are represented as NFT-based creatures which users can own. There are over 100 different types of Illuvials, each possessing unique traits, and skills.
The Illuvium crypto game shares similarities with Pokemon, as it’s a monster hunter that enables users to fuse, train, and upgrade their captured creatures to increase their power and attributes.
The private beta for Illuvium is scheduled to open access in a week, and users can currently attempt to enter the sweepstakes for priority access to the game.
In addition to its Metaverse game, Illuvium provides a robust finance dashboard that allows users to stake ILV tokens, claim rewards, and vest rewards/deposits. Since the game is built on the Ethereum blockchain, users can connect to the finance dashboard via a Web3 browser wallet like MetaMask and explore its functionality. We recommend checking it out if you’re looking to support an underrated Metaverse crypto game with tremendous long-term potential.
There is over $327 million in Total Amount Staked as of July 3rd, signaling the tremendous long-term potential and significant investor support for the project.
ILV is the primary ERC-20 Ethereum-based utility asset for Illuvium, enabling users to interact with its Metaverse (when it’s released), stake it for rewards, and much more.
