Blockchain-based virtual reality platform Decentraland has begun offering new non-fungible tokens such as wearables and avatar names in its new marketplace.
According to the announcement, Decentraland will be holding a four-day trading contest, where users can win special edition NFTs, to celebrate the debut of its new marketplace.
The three limited edition NFTs that will be up for grabs are the following:
- First prize – 4 premium LANDs and one-of-a-kind “Unique” NFT for the user’s avatar
- Second prize – 3 premium LANDs and a “Mythic” NFT for the user’s avatar
- Third price – 2 premium LANDs and a “Legendary” NFT for the user’s avatar
The top three users with the highest-grossing volume of transacted MANA during the contest will win the prizes.
The release of the new marketplace comes two days before the official public launch of Decentraland.
The public launch of Decentraland on Feb. 20 will include the establishment of the Decentraland DAO and full decentralization of the world’s infrastructure.
It will also give users full access to Decentraland’s metaverse.
About two weeks ago, the Decentraland team performed various modifications to the Ethereum-based virtual reality platform.
They worked on implementing player onboarding and tutorial, real-time airdrops of tokens, and other features, as well as enhanced a couple of features such as allowing users to check other players’ profile and NFTs and go to a random parcel or a point of interest through /goto random and /goto magic chat commands.
