Land prices at several projects rose this week, among them Decentraland and HYTOPIA

Highlight #1: Decentraland

24k ETH of the rise in land caps came from Decentraland, its LANDs cap powering 16.38% north to 171,409 ETH, leaving The Sandbox in its wake, 38% lower. Trade volume skyrocketed 360% from the week prior, even though sales were actually down, the average LAND price witnessing an even bigger rise, +437%.

The OG metaverse project’s big week on the LAND metrics front follows a huge amount of recent moves on the dev & community fronts.

This month alone, Decentraland went live with smart wearables and portable experiences, updated their funding system and launched an in-world camera. In the meantime, they are running a month-long Emotes Festival. July was also a big month, as they brought in custom animations, AI NPCs, exportable avatars & more.

A big week for Decentraland on the LANDs front – only 10 sales, but it included an Estate for 21+ ETH.

Highlight #2: HYTOPIA

HYTOPIA’s token $TOPIA (+55.8%) rode a wild journey northwards, disparate to any previous price movement since its launch 2.5 months back, though hardly shocking, occurring as it did on the back of their chain’s testnet faucet going live.

Opening a highly hyped proprietary blockchain to your gaming community can cause waves, and ripple effects. We will have to just wait and see how many, or not, cash in.

As for land parcels in the Minecraft metaverse, they recorded their highest trading volume, sales count (+80.6%) and average price (+ 26.9%) in several months, all pushing total land cap into positive territory by a solid 12.7% (now at 14,584 ETH).
