Note: The absolute value of Decentraland’s traffic is currently higher than that of Voxels, but the traffic sources are all official ports, and because the statistical caliber of different platforms may not be consistent, the results of the horizontal comparison may not be representative, so it is only for reference at present.
Virtual land lease data is collected from LandWorks, which currently supports virtual lands leases for Decentraland and Voxels.
In November, LandWorks leased 25 virtual lands (compared to 177 in October) for $2,858 (compared to $19,711 in October), and the chart below shows the number of virtual lands and the amount of virtual lands leased in the weekly dimension of LandWorks.

The Metaverse Real Estate Index (MREI) is an index that measures the price of virtual real estate in the metaverse. It is calculated by combining the sales volume, sales volume, and sales unit price of the eight top metaverse projects.
As we can see from the chart of the MREI index and ETH fluctuations, the MREI index trend continues to have a negative correlation with ETH prices in November, indicating a weakening correlation between the Metaverse section and the Crypto market.
