Ethereum remains the most popular platform for dApps and Metaverse coins. As the pioneer in smart contracts and DeFi, Ethereum’s blockchain hosts some of the most prominent players in the Metaverse. This article looks at the top 5 Metaverse coins built on Ethereum’s blockchain, ordered by market cap, lowest to highest.
