Virtual World Land NFTs
Similar to physical real estate, NFTs representing a parcel of digital land inside a blockchain-based virtual world have proven to be assets that can store value. Since Meta’s announcement last October, the demand for these virtual land NFTs has surged, driving their price up. However, amidst a crypto price slump, savvy investors can potentially find a bargain.

Top NFT Shards
Given that NFTs are selling for notable amounts of money the idea of fractionalization is popping up, giving smaller investors a chance to get involved. The technical process of fractionalization, or sharding as it is also known, is quite simple. Take an NFT, lock it into a vault, and receive tokens in return.
These tokens then represent ownership over the NFT that has been locked away, and their value increase or decrease means value fluctuations for the NFT asset. Investors can then buy these tokens and own a shard of the NFT. To learn more check out our complete guide to fractionalized NFTs.

- Each DOG token is currently worth $0.0103
- Etherrock was one of the first Ethereum collectible NFTs
