$2.3 million land sale could be the most expensive single plot in the metaverse so far

Blockchain-powered Axie Infinity Genesis plot sells for 550 ETH

No sooner had we reported on the sale of a group of 116 Decentraland plots for $2.43 million, than we find ourselves talking about a single plot that sold this week for more than $2m alone.

Axie Infinity tweeted this week that, “A Genesis Land Plot just sold for 550 ETH! That’s over 2.3 M USD!” The blockchain-powered metaverse company also tweeted that, “We believe this is the largest sum ever paid for a single plot of digital land”.

The play-to-earn platform boasts nearly half-a-million active monthly users and was created by Sky Mavis, a Vietnam-based company.
