This week has been relatively good for crypto markets as both Bitcoin and Ethereum are seeing some bullish momentum. Since Metaverse coins are all the hype right now, we’ve also seen quite a few projects experience double-digit percent price hikes of up to 20%. This article looks at the top five Metaverse coins gaining the most price today, ordered by 24-hour price gain, lowest to highest.
5. Vulcan Forged (PYR) +11.07%
Vulcan Forged PYR is a blockchain game studio and NFT marketplace that switched to the Polygon network in March 2021. Vulcan Forged allows users and creators to play, build, collaborate, earn, and bring their ideas to life.
On their platform, Vulcan Forged features several in-browser games available to play. Users must create a Vulcan Forged account to access the games, but they are open to the public.
In addition, Vulcan Forged has an NFT marketplace featuring plots of land in their Metaverse, along with a wide variety of collectibles and items. Keep in mind, since the market is on Polygon, users acquiring PYR from Uniswap will need to bridge the ERC-20 PYR into Polygon.
Recently, Vulcan Forged has dealt with a hacker who stole over $140 million PYR from their NFT marketplace on Polygon. Luckily, the Vulcan Forged team deployed a new contract and will complete a token swap in the next couple of days. Make sure to follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with the latest news regarding the exchange:
