Top 5 metaverses: Whether you’re a cryptophile, a cryptophobe, or even just a tech enthusiast, you’ve already heard of the metaverse. The most popular metaverse projects are: Decentraland, The Sandbox, Axie Infinity, and Enjin. But, there are others which are just as promising.

Since the beginning of this year, metaverse projects have struggled to take off. Nevertheless, experts remain optimistic about the future of the sector. Estimates from a study by Citi Bank predict that the metaverse economy will be worth $13 trillion in 2030.

Top 5 metaverses: Here are the ones to keep an eye on in 2022.

These are the upcoming projects to pay attention to.

Aavegotchi: The Play-to-earn of Aave’s DeFi platformtop 5

Current price: $2.02

Market capitalization: $127 million

Rating: 353

Developed by Pixelcraft Studios, Aavegotchi is a DeFi play-to-earn game that runs under the Aave protocol. It is a game that is inspired by the model ‘My Tamagotchi Forever,’ a pet game that has more than 5 million downloads on PlayStore.

To participate in Aavegotchi, players must purchase GHST. Using the GHST, they will be able to acquire aavegotchis which are in fact NFTs of the ‘digital collectible’ type. An aavegotchi is an avatar, represented by a pixelated character as a ‘ghost.’ It can be perfected as the player participates in the mini-games on the platform.

Like any other NFT, an aavegotchi can be sold on the market. The more the player improves it, the more valuable it becomes.

GHST is the native token of the Aavegotchi cryptocurrency. Apart from the fact that it is used to buy avatars in the game, GHST holders get REALM, another token, by staking. GHST’s maximum supply is not available but according to data provided by CoinMarketCap, it could have 67.89 million of them in circulation.

Mobox: Pioneer of GameFi

Market capitalization: $261.15 million

Ranking: 191

Binance users may remember this project. The price of Mobox has also risen dramatically after participating in the Binance Launchpool. Its price had indeed increased by 400% a week after the program.

Mobox is a play-to-earn game that combines the elements of decentralized finance (DeFi) with gaming tools. Players can have fun while making money. It is actually one of the first projects to assume the status of “GameFi” (i.e. gaming finance).

By playing the different games on Mobox, users earn MOMO NFTs that are exchangeable on the crypto marketplace. They can also draw staking returns on the ecosystem token, namely the MBOX.

What seems even more interesting with Mobox is its governance structure. It is grafted around a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Holding MBOX tokens allows users to intervene in the decision-making process of the platform.
