Decentraland, introduced in 2020, is a virtual social world that stands as the pioneer of decentralized metaverse experiences. It operates on the Ethereum blockchain, offering users a platform to unleash their creativity, engage with various content and applications, and even monetize their creations.
Alongside this, users can connect with others, taking part in a vibrant community and participating in a diverse array of events that are driven by the community on a daily basis. It’s a space where imagination thrives, connections are formed, and endless possibilities unfold.
Decentraland is unique in that it is owned, created, and governed by the people who use it every day. Through the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), users can submit proposals and even apply for grants that the community can vote on.
