“The Decentraland (MANA) is the decentralized virtual reality platform that is also the fastest growing blockchain based virtual world. Decentraland is quickly becoming a major player in transforming the Metaverse Ecosystem as we know it”. 

What is Decentraland (MANA)?

Decentraland is a decentralized virtual reality platform that provides users with the ability to interact with other users on the network, to create their own avatars and organize events, concerts and even provides the capability of buying and building houses on their virtual platform.

How does Decentraland Work?

Decentraland is an online virtual space that combines blockchain technology with the concept of virtual reality. Everything on Decentraland is a NFT including the in-game collectibles, items, clothes, land, real estate etc. Unlike other games where the complete control is with the developers, Decentraland is a decentralized organization where the voting powers are vested in the users that vote for the growth and rules of the game. Decentraland has two currencies that can be used on the platform.

MANA is the native cryptocurrency of Decentraland which acts as the digital currency as well as the Governance token. MANA can be used to use the platform and create avatars and to communicate with other users. Also, MANA can be used as a voting right for the governance of the network. LAND on the other hand is a NFT that can be used to prove the ownership of the virtual land owned by a user on the Decentraland’s virtual world.
