Metaverse is set to be the next big thing that would rake in the big bucks — major investors and firms like Ark Invest founder Cathie Wood and crypto asset custodian Grayscale believe so.
Wood stated that the metaverse would eventually become a multi trillion-dollar market and that it is likely to seep into every sector in ways that are unimaginable. As for Grayscale, it described the metaverse as a driving force for innovations in Web 3.0 that could change the way we interact, do business and shape the overall internet economy.
Hence, it is only natural that we take a look at the five metaverse tokens that performed the best since the start of this year.
