Cardano worth surges after Metaverse venture launch, ADA features greater than 30% in 7 days

Advertisements

Smart contract token Cardano has surged in value over the past 24 hours following the launch of a metaverse project called Pavia. Seven-day stats show Cardano’s price is up 30.9% over the week to take the fifth-largest crypto market cap position as of Sunday night (EST).

NFT and Metaverse Project Pavia increase the price of Cardano

Cardano (ADA) has seen its price surge over the past seven days and 24-hour stats show ADA is up 9.5% against the US Dollar. Cardano is a smart contract network, similar to Ethereum, and over the past 12 months, the value of the crypto asset has increased by 336.5%. However, Cardano has been criticized in recent months for the project’s smart contract capability and the fact that ADA-based decentralized financial assets (Defi) and non-fungible token (NFT) assets were almost non-existent.

Recently that has changed, and today defillama.com metrics show that a total value of almost $3 million is locked in Cardano-based Defi protocols. Additionally, Cardano-based NFTs are now entering the NFT space with projects such as Clay Mates, Yummi Universe, Spacebudz, Pavia, and Cardano Kidz.

On January 15, 2022, the NFT and Metaverse project called Pavia.io was officially launched and ADA supporters believe that it will be a competitor to blockchain metaverse protocols like The Sandbox and Decentraland. Pavia’s website states:

Create, explore and trade in the first-ever Cardano virtual world owned by its users.

Pavia’s card has a total of 100,000 virtual packs, Cardano’s price is still 50% lower than the all-time high

The Pavia announcement notes that 100,000 properties have been minted as non-fungible token (NFT) assets. According to the website, US and UK citizens have been banned from the land sale that took place in late 2021. Land sale 1 sold 29,000 parcels, while land sale 2 sold 31,000 parcels. Additionally, in December, the project took a wallet snapshot to dump 25% of the project’s PAVIA utility tokens to Cardano-created Metaverse patrons.

The name Pavia comes from the Italian birthplace of the renowned mathematician Gerolamo Cardano. “In total, Pavia.io has about 100,000 land packs, each coined as a unique NFT with coordinates. At the time of writing, the project has sold approximately 60% of these lots from October to November 2021. A finale is planned for the first quarter of 2022,” said the announcement of the start of the project.

Today, while the global cryptocurrency market economy is down 1.3% to $2.17 trillion in the last 24 hours, ADA managed to stave off the losses. ADA today has a global trading volume of $3.3 billion and a market valuation of around $48.9 billion. While ADA has been on an increase lately, at $3.09 per unit it is still more than 50% below its all-time high (ATH) five months ago on September 2, 2021.
