Walk through the

Decentraland

Decentraland metaverse is probably the most developed. You can walk the virtual land and explore what the players have built on their 16x16m land. If that space is too small, you can connect adjacent tiles into so-called estates.

Each tile is an NFT based on Ethereum smart contract. You can buy land using MANA cryptocurrency. They are quite expensive especially since the MANA price soared in March 2021. Decentraland offer 90K tiles.

How to build

your Decentraland scene

Decentraland builder allow anyone to create a scene. You don't need any artistic or programming skills. Use the builder and drag and drop the object scale and rotate them. Then place them in the right position.

You can import objects created by others and give life to your scene with interactive items. Watch on ,

Is Decentraland Popular

The work on Decentraland has begun in 2015 and since then it has some popularity. We have tried to play and never really met anyone outside of the Genesis Plaza where everyone starts. Also, the world is quite empty, and the graphic is far from photorealistic.

To conclude, Decentraland developed a few interesting ideas

Become Virtual with

VPark

Vpark appeared in Sept 2020 offering 360° background for your online calls. Later, additional features were added, like a purchase of a virtual land similar way like on the Earth2.

Enticing videos show how you link the interactive services with your virtual land, but currently, you can only place a few 3D objects in front of a few backgrounds. When buying land you can use a cool deselect button which would be helpful with tile art, but overall the buying process is cumbersome. During each purchase, several pop-ups appear and you are requested to link vpark and vpark land accounts which we haven't managed to do yet. Minimal deposit is $3.
