Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook has rebranded itself to Meta as it tries to build out its metaverse business. With that happening, $MANA, $SAND, $AXS, and other Metaverse tokens prices exploded. And this will keep happening again and again as tech giants like Microsoft also plan to enter the metaverse space.
Now that you have all the reasons to believe that metaverse is becoming a real thing, the time is perfect for getting into metaverse projects built on blockchain. But, do you know which are the best blockchain-powered metaverses? Do you know how you can get into one? If not, you must pay all your attention to this video. In this article, you will discover the top 5 NFT and metaverse projects:
1. Enjin (MetaCity)
MetaCity is a metaverse inspired by the game Minecraft, and it’s the world’s first free-to-earn NFT real estate. Nowadays, Metacity only has 70 NFT plots available where owners can develop different kinds of businesses.
We love Metacity because of its Free NFT drops which you can earn, resell or cherish forever. Also, it offers players cross-game play. That means they can exchange items between two games. In this case, Metacity and Minecraft.
Also, another exciting aspect of the game is its creator economy. You create value and earn a living by doing what you love. For example, inside MetaCity, anyone will be able to: Create characters as NFTs and create NFT art inhibitions.
The good thing about this platform is that users can use their crypto assets inside MetaCity. Here is a video tutorial on managing them.
There's no other blockchain with this kind of NFT scalability on its roadmap or horizon.

Recently, Metacity went live with their Fractured Lands NFT properties. This means that users can claim a plot of land which an NFT will be generated to prove its unique value.
Finally, anyone can start playing the game for free and earn capital coins to buy NFT plots on the Minecraft server. Only that server is available now. It’s important to say that right now is not possible to buy NFT plots. This feature will be launched soon.
2. The Sandbox
The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain.
The goal is to disrupt existing game makers like Minecraft and Roblox by providing creators with actual ownership as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and rewarding them for their participation in the ecosystem.

Also, according to CoinGecko, The Sandbox is in the Top 5 Metaverse projects, representing 7% of the sector.
The first reason why we love The Sandbox is that its platform to create games inside the metaverse. It provides a better experience for users who generate their content through blockchain and smart contracts. The Sandbox Game Maker is a clear example of it.
Also, The Sandbox has a tool called VoxEdit, where anyone can start creating assets. Can you imagine how cool it would be to create 3D assets? Users can upload, publish, and sell their NFT creations made with VoxEdit. Learn how to use VoxEdit here.

Sorare is a football NFT game built on the Ethereum blockchain. More than 180 football clubs are officially licensed on the Sorare platform, where more clubs are joining every week.
We loved Sorare because players can use the cards they’ve bought to create a fantasy team. Each card represents a real player. Based on the performance of that player on the actual pitches, cardholders will earn points. Every week the teams with the most points will make new cards as a reward.
On the other hand, Sorare announced a USD 680 million Serie B investment. Also, did you know that the “Lionel Messi” NFT was purchased for 7.9 ETH? Another Sorare related news is that Ubisoft created a game with Sorare’s NFTs.
