Token Boom Series

Quick take: 

  • Flow token gained more than 70% after teaming up with Meta to bring NFTs to 100 countries.
  • Somnium Space spiked 98%, while Mask Network and Theta Network were also among the top gainers.
  • Cryptodickbutts floor price rocketed more than 90% with transaction volume soaring 376%.

In this edition of the token boom report, the metaverse, NFTs and collectibles tokens extended gains from the last week, as market optimism continues to grow. Generally, cryptocurrency prices maintained a steady recovery with bitcoin rallying to trade above $24k while Ethereum topped $1,800.

This was partly because the July US jobs data was more than double the consensus forecast. Investors are also encouraged by the US Senate’s passing of the $750 billion inflation reduction bill.

From a segment-specific view, the NFTs and metaverse market continued to attract significant venture capital activity with former Sequoia Capital partner Yinglan Tan’s Insignia Ventures raising $516 million to invest in Web3 and other exciting tech startups. Leading Web3 startups Chiliz’s subsidiary Socios invested €100 million in FC Barcelona. 

Elsewhere, Magic Eden accelerated its strategy for the NFT space clear with the expansion to the Ethereum blockchain, essentially declaring a head-on competition with the leading NFT marketplace OpenSea.

Meta also made its long-awaited play, expanding its NFT feature on Instagram to 100 countries.

Metaverse tokens

Over the last seven days, the total market value for metaverse tokens increased to $14.9 billion up from $13.5 billion registered in the previous week.
