- Weekly Metaverse Review
Just a week from the previous month, we continue to notice the downward trend caused by the bear market. Just by checking Tables 1 and 2, the blue-chip projects have experienced a -58.65% downward trend from July 31 to August 4, 2022, in the Number of Parcel Sales. This number can still correlate with the current market situation, which means fewer people are going in unless there are big announcements from well-known names entering the metaverse inside one of these platforms.
Now, if we check Table 3 (July 3), we can see that the numbers from Table 2 (August 4) are lower than last month’s total project parcel sales — a total decrease of -68.31%.
📌 This Week’s Significant Land Updates
Being the project with the highest number of parcel sales for this year compared to other virtual lands, OthersideMeta has experienced highs and lows too. By checking Tables 4 and 5 below, we can see that they had their lowest point last July 20, 2022, for their Average Parcel Price and have been unstable since. But compared to the previous month’s average parcel price, the start of this month (Table 5) looks more promising. In total, from July 20, 2022, to August 4, 2022, there is a 13.66% increase in their Average Parcel Price.
If we check Table 6 below of the Number of Parcel Sales, we can see a better and more stable trend compared to last month’s numbers. We can associate this to their latest announcement of their Tech Demo in the mid July, and continuous improvement in their virtual lands. As of August 3, 2022, we can see 78 total parcel sales, and we hope to see a more stable uptrend in the following days!
Last month, Decentraland beat their downward trend, as we see progress from them which is seen in Table 7 (July 15, 2022). This improvement can be visually seen through social media, as many brands announce their participation in the metaverse through their platform, and more people from their communities start to enter. However, as seen in Table 8 (August 4, 2022), we began to see a downward trend again, just before the month started. Decentraland has experienced a total of -87.5% decrease from July 15 to August 4, an explanation for this is still because of the bear market, and by checking their social media accounts, there are no recent updates from the project ever since the month started.
But still, it’s just the start of the month and if we check Table 9, their traffic is still going strong! This means that people continue to support Decentraland and hope for the best in the coming days.
A brand new month means more opportunities and surprises coming for us in the metaverse. We have been through a lot during the bear market, and it has eliminated some doubts and given the chance to improve a lot. From Table 10 below, we are still seeing the effect of the bear from our monthly MREI, but still, we are higher than the ETH price. We hope for a better and stronger metaverse as the world continuously recognizes and adapts this space. LFG!
