Decentraland Criptomoneda EXPLICADO ¿Qué es Decentraland y su token MANA?

Hello, in this video we are going to take a
closer look at Decentraland, the virtual world experience that
is built on the Ethereum blockchain. We're going to look at the benefits of
blockchain-based land ownership, Decentraland's native currency, and some of
the more interesting real-world use cases. Development of Decentraland began in
2015 with a 2D proof of concept, and cleverly dubbed "the Stone Age."
The project has come a long way since then and in February 2020 it was
officially launched to the public. So, let's see what this virtual world has to offer you today and
answer the question: What is Decentraland? Decentraland is a fully decentralized 3D virtual world
where people can own and develop their virtual land or roam and
interact with what other users have created, as well as other people who are
exploring Decentraland. The landscape can include anything from
static 3D scenery to interactive objects, buildings, art, games, or massive events that
attract thousands of users. Decentraland is not necessarily a revolutionary product.
However, looking a little deeper, we can see how Decentraland brings
a new paradigm to the virtual world.

The world of Decentraland is divided into
small fragments, called "Parcels". Each plot measures 16m by 16m, or 52 feet by
52 feet, and is the smallest piece of land you can own. However, if you own multiple
plots next to each other, you can combine them to create a farm. Also, some large areas
are assigned a specific theme and therefore a District is created. Genesis Plaza is the
most notable example. Located in the center of the map, it is a beautiful virtual plaza where
you can learn more about Decentraland, its history, how to navigate and which places
are hot at any given time. Each plot is represented by the
x and ye coordinates on the map and by a token called LAND on the Ethereum blockchain. LAND is an ERC721 token, which means that it is
non-fungible, that is, it is scarce and each token is a collection object. In other words,
each LAND token is unique and cannot be replicated or exchanged with another.

It contains the information
of the land's location in Decentraland, the X and Y coordinates, along with
the community-managed decentralized servers, with the necessary content to render it
in 3D graphics for everyone to enjoy. If you have a LAND token, it is written
on the blockchain as belonging to your public Ethereum address. No one can
take it off or change it in any way.

It is yours forever! Unless, of course,
you decide to sell it or transfer it to someone else. And that's the beauty of Decentraland and what
sets it apart from other centralized digital worlds. In the latter, the world is controlled
by a single entity, which can change the rules to its liking, or censor or ban you. Or they
could even close your business, in which case you will lose everything you have built. But with
Decentraland, the world belongs to the community. And that goes one step further. Decentraland is
"governed" by a DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization.

And because it is
decentralized, it means that all members of the community can participate and vote on the
proposals they want to adopt or reject. The DAO controls a large pool of MANA tokens
that allow it to operate and also subsidize various operations and initiatives. They also control
important smart contracts such as the LAND contract, the Estate contract,
the Wearables, and the Marketplace. That's right, there are apparel for your avatar that you can
buy, that's right, at Decentraland Marketplace. The native token that powers the economy
of the decentraland ecosystem is MANA. MANA was introduced in August
2017 through an ICO that raised just over $ 26 million USD and its
circulation began a few months later.

As the native currency of the virtual world, it
is what you need if you want to buy LAND on Decentraland. In December
2017, early adopters had the opportunity to buy LAND at an auction,
called the “Terraform Event”. Today, you can buy LAND on the Marketplace,
where some of these early adopters have put their land up for sale. And just
like in real estate … the location of the real estate is key. You can
expect to pay a much higher price for a property that is close to a center that sees a
lot of traffic, such as the Genesis Plaza, in fact, in 2018, such a
property sold for $ 800,000! However, in addition to LAND, in the
Marketplace you can also buy stylish dresses that the community has
created for you to wear with your Avatar.

Because even though your Avatar doesn't come
into the world naked, let's face it, designing a unique garment that no one else has
is half the fun. The other half is, of course, building your
terrain through the Visual Builder tool, or the SDK for programmers, participating in the
world and interacting with other users through the integrated chat tool, or inviting your
friends to a virtual drink to your virtual house called "Mia casa", a name you bought in
the Marketplace. The possibilities are endless! So how do you get into the
Decentraland game? All you need is a browser, with Chrome or Firefox being officially supported
, running on a Windows or MacOS computer. And while that's
all you need to visit Decentraland, to experience the world to the fullest, or to buy
their LAND and other collectibles on the Marketplace, you will also need a wallet that supports
Ethereum, such as Metamask or Mist, loaded with some MANA and Ethers.

. You can also spend MANA in the
world to access additional content while rewarding its creators, and you will need ETH
to pay the transaction fees. Alternatively, you can use the Brave browser,
which already has a built-in Ethereum wallet. Therefore, you can keep your
main MANA amount in your Exodus wallet and send a portion, along with some
ETH, to your browser's wallet. And once inside, how does
Decentraland play feel? Well, the world is HUGE, it is transversal and quite colorful. You can walk
with the mouse and the arrow keys, enter buildings and interact with objects.

Or you can
open the map and quickly jump to any location that piques your interest. You can
visit clubs, museums, casinos, parks, see digital art, take a ride on a boat, or listen to
music or birdsong. Or play games. Choose one of these crypto videos to keep
