7-day data shows VRE market cap for the 10 projects on OneLand up 1.45% to 711,947 ETH. Total NFT cap rose more moderately – by 0.69% – to 2.91m ETH.
The second consecutive week of rising aggregate land cap (in contrast to 3mths of a falling one), comes despite $ETH (and overall crypto market cap) falling a third straight week, down 1.31% to $1,635.72.
Decentraland’s land cap (+3.8%) continues to rise, as does that of HYTOPIA (+9.35%).
At BYOPills, there were a few notable BYOLands sales at prices above the norm, pushing 7D volumes up 86.35% as well as its overall land market cap (+1.38%) to its highest since late July.
Volume appeared to boom mid-week at Somnium Space (+162%), but that happened due to some back-and-forth purchase gestures on the same parcel, distorting price (+149.65%) and other data.
While over at Worldwide Webb, Penthouse 9024 went two ways, first for 4.79 ETH (its top sale in 2 months), then 3.86 ETH, after the gaming metaverse went live with its first Rugbusterz Rumble.
At HYTOPIA, the average price of a land plot keeps increasing, up 26% for the month, while the floor price is up a full 69.35% and rising, all fueled by a steady stream of updates on the game’s proprietary blockchain.
Meanwhile, a portion of $TOPIA “holders” cashed in following last week’s price spike, the token retreating 17.5% for the week, but still 28.5% above where it stood a fortnight back. Looking at other virtual world tokens, both $SAND and $MANA fell for a 6th week running while $APE has dropped 32.2% in 3 weeks.
Finally, an Otherdeed selling for 24.37 ETH was Otherside’s top-priced transaction since May.
