If you have been wondering what’s the next hottest segment in the crypto world after NFTs, well, you have your answer now. It’s none other than the Metaverse.

Such has been the craze for metaverse projects since Facebook’s name-changing exercise, that four leading metaverse projects have registered a record sale of $100 million last week.

DappRadar, a popular decentralized applications analytics platform, recorded an upsurge in activity on four leading metaverse projects: Decentraland, The Sandbox, Somnium Space, and CryptoVoxels.

The Dapps analytics platform found that these metaverse projects combined sold virtual land worth $105.8 million in one week, with over 6000 traders taking part in the trading. These sales were recorded between November 22 to November 28.

TikTok made an announcement in its newsroom recently. The social media platform stated that they are rolling all the monetization features into a single hub known as Creator Next. They are also making changes to the available monetization tools available on the platform.

Amid the competition among various social media giants to attract the best creators, TikTok is leaving no stone unturned to retain its creators & prevent them from making a move to other platforms.

Considering that the social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Snapchat are doling out thousands of dollars to attract creators to their platforms, TikTok’s decision to increase money-making opportunities for creators is a strategic decision to retain its market share.

Back in 2019, when TikTok launched, its creators found it difficult to make money through the platform. The only way they could make money was to find sponsorship opportunities outside TikTok.

Sensing the demand among creators, TikTok launched a $200 million creator fund, and since then, the short-form video platform has rolled out many initiatives to offer money-making opportunities to TikTok creators.
