While I am already familiar with Decentraland, I’ve never or barely heard of some of these other projects before:
Metaverse (now there’s a poorly-chosen name!)
You know what that means, don’t you? It’s time for me to go do some investigating and exploring again! I’ll report back on what I find, and just how accurate this chart is.
I leave you with this vague and mystifying promotional video for Mark Space, which makes me wonder what exactly the company is spending their money on—an actual virtual world, or slick advertising to bring in more investors? This sort of thing raises all kinds of red flags for me.
Or, if you really want to see something trippy that pretty much has absolutely nothing to do with the actual product, check out this promotional video for Cappasity!
The level of insanity in this market is breathtaking.
And the endless stream of discussion, argument, and sometimes outright vitriol has been quite entertaining at times. For example, one impatient wag posted this animated GIF to the VIBEHub channel:

And then you get the endless propositions from people who are peddling cryptocurrency and ICO promotion schemes:
I’m glad that I don’t have to field all these requests …it’s overwhelming!

If you’re interested in following the ongoing circus, you can find links to the Telegram servers from each of the companies’ official websites (there’s usually a link to all their social media near the top or bottom of the page, just look for the paper airplane symbol):
