As part of its expansion plans, the Metaverse Group, based in Decentraland, declared that it had completed the biggest Metaverse land acquisition ever recorded. The company, which is an affiliate of Tokens.com, purchased 116 plots of land in Decentraland’s Fashion Street sector. The total area of the land purchased is 6,090 square feet, and it cost 618,000 MANA tokens, or around $2.5 million.
The land will be developed for fashion exhibitions and commerce by Metaverse Group. It will also develop alliances with fashion firms interested in expanding their presence in the Metaverse, particularly in Decentraland. According to Sam Hamilton, the Decentraland Foundation’s Head of Content., fashion is the next point of attraction and growth in the Metaverse.

On Nov. 17, the publicly traded Canadian blockchain investment business invested $2.75 million in Metaverse Group to expand its ownership of the company from 50% to 70%. The cash will be used by Metaverse Group to purchase more land in Metaverses, including Decentraland, Somnium Space, The Sandbox, Cryptovoxels, and Upland.
