While the cryptocurrency market continues to consolidate sideways and Bitcoin is struggling to stay above $60,000, some coins are still experiencing significant price gains today. Sandbox and Mines of Dalarnia are two of the biggest gainers today, up over 20% in the last 24 hours.
Sandbox (SAND) – $7.73 (+21.31%)
Only the most anticipated meta-universe coin on the market, Sandbox, is up over 21% today, currently trading at $7.73 and edging closer to $10.
Sandbox is considered by many to be Decentaland’s main competitor, offering similar 3D metaverse and affordability when it comes to buying plots and customizing plots.
The most likely reason for SAND’s price increase today is the upcoming alpha release of the game tomorrow.
Users will be able to explore the metaverse tomorrow through 18 experiences created by the Sandbox team. To experience the full release, users must have an Alpha Pass, which is an NFT ticket that allows users open access to the Alpha and gives players access to up to 1,000 SANDs and three exclusive NFTs.
Don’t worry, because if you don’t have an Alpha Pass, you can still get three full experiences and the Alpha HUB, a hub experience similar to Decentraland’s Hub.
The Sandbox is trading at $7.61, up over 22% in the last 24 hours. You can buy SAND on most major exchanges such as Binance, KuCoin, Huobi Global, Uniswap, Crypto.com, etc.
Mines of Dalarnia (DAR) – $3.64 (+20%)
Mines of Dalarnia is one of the most exciting meta-universe games on the market today. It is a blockchain-based action-adventure game that allows players to mine and combine various in-game items to improve their skills and equipment in order to unlock the MoD universe.
Mines of Dalarnia recently received a brand new update on November 25. The update enables players to begin mining plots that will become the backbone of the game’s in-game economy.
The MoD universe consists of several planets, each of which is split into 40×40 plots. Players will have to pay a “mining fee”, which includes a DAR cost.
There are quite a few similarities between MoD and top meta-universe projects like Decentraland and The Sandbox. The difference is that MoD features a 2D universe rather than the 3D sandbox of MANA or SAND.
Mines of Dalarnia is currently trading at $3.64, up over 20% in the last 24 hours, and MoD has a market cap of $440 million and is trying to break the $500 million threshold. The recent update is a step in the right direction and I wouldn’t be surprised to see MoD hit $5 by the end of the year.
