Pavia, Cardano’s first Metaverse project, reports that there are now over 22,000 landowners or unique wallet holders of pavia.io Land NFTs. Pavia, which officially launched as the first Cardano Metaverse in January, was named after Pavia, Italy, the 1501 birthplace of Gerolamo (Jerome) Cardano.
Somewhat similar in style to Decentraland but built on proof-of-stake blockchain technology, each land parcel is a uniquely numbered Cardano NFT (CNFT) based on coordinates within Pavia.io.
In March, the Cardano ecosystem grew exponentially, gaining millions in capitalization and TVL in smart contracts of recently released platforms and DeFi apps. As previously reported by U.Today, Cardano attracted nearly $230 million in DeFi in March. According to DeFiLIama, the total value of funds locked on Cardano DEX rose to all-time highs of $434 million on March 28.
