Part 1: Data analysis report of Metaverse

1. Sales(USD)

**While the market was depressed, the sales of metaverse field in June also continued to decline. **It can be seen from the table below that the total sales of this month decreased by 97% compared with the previous month, and the special situation of Otherside raised the overall trend.

Otherside is the new metaverse platform launched by Yuga labs in May.The market Fomo factor caused primary and secondary total sales of the month as high as $786 million (this data does not include the gas fee of the primary market), of which the sales on May 1 was as high as $646 million; and, In June, it tended to decline significantly that sales falling to US $21.12 million, which fell by 97% from the previous month. The Otherside’s sales accounted for a large proportion in the metaverse market as high as 82%, so Otherside exacerbated the decline of overall sales in this month.

In addition to Otherside, the sales of several other head metaverse platforms had also decreased by varying degrees due to the downturn of the market, their sales fell by more than 50%.

We can also see from the histogram of sales of multiple platforms in May and June that the proportion of Otherside and the degree of decline are large. In May and June, we almost only see the color of Otherside, and other platforms are almost completely submerged.

Let’s take a look at the trend of ETH. It can be seen that the overall trend in June was fluctuating decline.

2. Average selling price(USD&ETH)

Observing the average price (USD) , the head metaverse platforms had fallen to varying degrees. Among them, the Otherside, Webb and Somnium space decreased significantly, all of which exceeded 50%.

The slowest decline in the average price is Decentraland and Voxels, which are also the two platforms that the institutions and individuals are more willing to visit at present, which may be the reason why they decline slowly.

From the perspective of the average price (ETH), due to the decline of ETH price, the prices(ETH) of four metaverse platforms even rose. These four metverse platforms include three OG platforms: Sandbox, Decentraland, Voxels and the new platform-Otherside.

At the same time, we can also see that the technical barriers of product of metaverse platform are indeed high. **The metaverse that can really play requires time and energy to develop and build. “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, **there are few such projects at present; Despite the market are fluctuating, but several OG platforms are still unshakable.

3. Sales volume

From the perspective of sales volume, although the land on the Otherside decreased significantly by 94% compared with the 56120 parcels just sold last month; However, in terms of absolute quantity, its flow flux was still very large, exceeded the sum of sales of other metaverse platforms in the table (3473 vs 2077). The change trend of sales volume was similar to the indicators of other dimensions and was greatly affected by the overall market.

4. Traffic

Voxels’ traffic in June was 529000, compared with 464000 in May, with a month on month increase of 14%. This is mainly because Voxels officially held a series of activities, such as the Pride Parade on June 18, the fashion show at the end of June, etc.

Decentraland’s traffic in June was 830000. (Metacat temporarily only obtained the traffic in June, so there was no month on month data.)

At present, the absolute value of Decentraland’s traffic is higher than that of Voxels, but all traffic sources are from official ports. Because the statistical caliber of different platforms may be inconsistent, and the horizontal comparison results may not be representative, it is only for reference at present.

5. MREI index

Metaverse real estate index (MREI) is an indicator used by MetaCat to measure the price of metaverse virtual real estate. It is calculated from multiple dimensions of sales, sales volume and selling price of eight head metaverse platforms.

From the fluctuation trend chart of MREI index and ETH, we can see that the MREI index fell sharply in June, which coincides with the sales situation of the metaverse this month. Due to the special reasons of Otherside, the decline trend of MREI index is more intense than that of ETH.
