Market Data & Analysis
It may even be that ETH’s rally sparked some FOMO-ing traders in OG projects Decentraland and The Sandbox into action – weekly trading volumes were up by 57% and 33% respectively – but also Worldwide Webb (+25%) and BYOPills (+63%). Currently, Decentraland is gearing up for its second annual Metaverse Music Festival, taking place 10-13 Nov (in which OneLand will be participating) while The Sandbox concludes its 10-week long Alpha Season 3 (don’t forget to check our upcoming October monthly report for a performance comparison with AlphaS1 and 2).
Over at NFT Worlds, where the dev team power forward with their new game, its pricing has corrected a little over recent weeks to return near 1 ETH, after hitting as low as 0.73 on Sep 10. That is still a far cry from the 3.72 ETH ($5,840) prior to July 20 when Microsoft banned NFTs from Minecraft and forced NFT Worlds’ pivot, while trading volumes remain low, down 23% for the week as the community waits and watches while in a bear market. However, with a Beta on its way, a blockchain gaming integration, upcoming Game Jam and a little more marketing at play, it will be interesting to witness the coming months.
Trading and price action at Worldwide Webb has been lacklustre, but October has been a better month than September for the NFT integration superstar. Trading volume and sales numbers improved 24.8% and 50% for the week, as the project released news that come the end of the week (Halloween), its Alpha would open for all players!

OneLand 7-day data shows land market caps for the 10 metaverse projects on OneLand up a significant 14%, in USD, to exceed $1.46 billion. A 16.6% rally in the price of ETH (total crypto market cap +7.85%) was the cause, with aggregate land cap in ETH terms in fact down 2.3%. ETH was not the only solid weekly performer, with most crypto, including metaverse-based tokens SAND (+15.8%), MANA (+ 8%), CUBE (+9.4%) and WRLD (+27.5%), all bouncing back.
Aggregated trading volume was up nearly 3% for the week and, this time, cannot simply be attributed to Otherside, as land cap (-6.1%) and trading volume of Otherdeeds (-18.6%) slid for the week. (A top sale of just 17.5 ETH surely contributed.)
