Metaverse Mania Builds, Our Community Grows, and The Future Looks Bright!
Realm is trending and gaining serious momentum on social media and in the charts and now being spoken of in the same breath as Decentraland, The Sandbox in the Metaverse conversation.
$REALM was going from strength to strength, battering all-time highs as altcoin-season gained momentum. $REALM grew from $0.03 at IDO, to $0.7107 on the 3rd of November, an over 23X gain for our early investors. Building anticipation of our upcoming product launch and the Metaverse media onslaught, Realm has continued to secure steady growth on returns for our investors.
Then the third week of November 2021 happened. And things will never be the same again. On the 19th November, $REALM jumped 45%, matching, then beating, the likes of Layer 2 Ethereum protocol Immutable X for gains. The rally had begun. Two days later, those all-time highs of early November were fading in the rear-view window of the Metaverse, replaced by 100% + gains.
$REALM was on the move.
It started with a tweet from GamingFi-TV, which used data from LunarCrush to rank the gaming and Metaverse projects with the highest social media volume over the previous 24 hours. In second place, right behind Axie Infinity? Yes, Realm. Altcoin Daily then used this LunarCrush social data to include REALM in their top 6 Metaverse altcoins. (Skip to 3.16 to listen to the Realm segment.) That really lit the touchpaper.
Not long before CryptoDep (@Crypto_dep) shared the below image with their 25k followers, $REALM was trading at a new all-time high of $0.84. Later that same day @cryptolaxy published their 11 top Metaverse platforms by relative liquidity ratio, (a more complex market indicator, but essentially, the higher the ratio, the higher the interest in the token.) and $REALM started trending on @coingecko.
Take a look at the image below from Cryptolax. Decentraland, Enjin, The Sandbox, and then Realm. The company we keep.
From that point, it was a one-way ticket to uncharted territory and a new all time high of $1.68. This exposure was followed by a post by YouTube sensation @cryptogains,who did a breakdown on the 168% gains and asked whether REALM could out-perform The Sandbox and Decentraland’s MANA token.
As the value climbed, the trading volume followed suit, again reaching all-time highs and surpassing $30 million in 24 hours, up 63%.
Perhaps more telling, and paramount for the continued growth of $REALM, is the number of investors piling into the Realm Metaverse. Individual wallet addresses are now over 9000 on BSC and 1400 on Ethereum as, can be seen on DEXTools (ETH and BSC).
Why is $REALM gaining momentum?
The reason is a complex machine, but several factors cast light on why $REALM is undergoing such a price increase. From Realm representing the Metaverse at the first annual Forbes crypto gala and auction in Monaco last week, to the rollout of pre-alpha testing of the app, there are many catalysts.
Perhaps the most significant factor is Facebook, or rather the newly christened Meta — the re-named and re-branded holding company of Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp.
Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg and his media machine, ‘Metaverse’ is trending on every web traffic indicator available, Google search results for the term are increasing exponentially, even the BBC is getting in on the act. Whether supportive or questioning of Mark Zuckerberg’s vision, the impetus to be part of the Metaverse is gathering momentum, and Realm is now integral to the narrative as the world’s only mobile-first metaverse.
The Realm Road Map
A BTC ETF and rumors of an Ethereum ETF later in the year contributing to the crypto market’s drive towards a $3 trillion market cap, but markets and ‘Meta’ are out of our hands. The things we can control are our roadmap, our plans for the Metaverse. Announcements have been coming thick and fast. This is what you may have missed:
