The meta-verse is still very popular
Despite the current downturn in all markets and the lack of interest in non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the metaverse universe and its virtual games have remained very popular with users so far.
The number of users of these games has remained constant, to about 1 million users a dayaccording to data from decentralized application (Dapp) tracker DappRadar.
On the other hand, it’s a different story for NFTs. Daily NFT trading volume fell 87.1% in May, according to Kraken’s report. This does not prevent supporters of these technologies from being optimistic about the future, especially when we know that the NFT market may represent $ 13.6 billion in 2027.
In the last 30 days and the last 90 days, the cryptos attached to the metaverse still suffer the blow like all other cryptocurrencies, with a negative performance of -42% on average. Which is smaller than the total market.
Money continues to flow into the metaverse sector, which is of great interest to investors around the worldeven the largest companies. Witness the recent investment from social networking giant Meta, which has claimed to be putting billions of dollars into the evolution of this universe without it being profitable at the moment.
DAppRadars Q1 Gaming Report indicates that $ 2.5 billion was raised in support of blockchain games and metaverse-related projects in the first quarter of 2022:
“At this rate, gaming and metaverse projects will add $ 10 billion this year to continue building the future of this industry.”
The metaverse industry still has a bright future ahead of it, if one is to believe these numbers.
