Last week, Cardano network launched Pavia, a gaming application on the Metaverse. This stands as the first metaverse project operated on the Cardano blockchain.
The use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which operate with the same blockchain technology as cryptocurrencies, is increasing. They enable investors to get tokenized assets of their favorite art items, idols, places, etc. NFTs create representations of both tangible and non-tangible items.

The pre-selling of the parcels kick-off since 2021 with more than 60% done between October and November. Also, there is a rush for the remaining portions which will be on sale within the first quarter of 2022.
The functionality of Pavia’s native token is as an in-game asset. An airdrop of Pavia’s native token was made to NFT landholders. This was after the blockchain’s snapshot in December 2021.
According to data from MuesliSwap, a Cardano-based exchange, Pavia tokens are selling around 20 cents per coin at the press time. Also, it has a market cap of more than $107 million.
Furthermore, Pavia landowners are more than 8,300. The data has it that the users were unable to deploy assets over their land on Monday. Caution documents from Pavia have warned customers that they can neither visit nor deploy content to the plots. This was due to the development stage of the land parcels.
