One of my personal favorites and a pioneer in 3D Metaverse projects is Decentraland, a blockchain-based virtual platform enabling a multitude of experiences along with a way for users to purchase Land assets and monetize them.
Decentraland has been open to the public since February 2020 and is the longest-running 3D Metaverse project in crypto.
Anyone can check out Decentraland by visiting their official website and connecting using MetaMask on Chrome. Make sure that your wallet is set on the Ethereum chain, and have fun exploring!
While Decentraland is already one of the highest-valued projects on the market, as more and more platforms are built on Decentraland, MANA can easily double or triple in price next year.
