According to the latest Coingecko tracking, at the time of writing, the digital token is trading at $0.2941 and has lost 10.3% of its value over the past seven days.

Decentraland: 440% growth in minted NFTs
The gaming metaverse seems to have focused most of its attention on the non-fungible token (NFT) space this year, as evidenced by its impressive performance in the industry. In its year-end performance report, Decentraland revealed that for the year 2022, 2.7 million unique NFTs were published on its platform.
With such figures, year-on-year (YoY), the service has a 440% increase in the volume of NFT assets invested in its network. Decentraland is also proud to announce that it will end 2022 with a number of one-time employees of 1 million after seeing a 13% jump in the sector in the last twelve months.
Furthermore, the project managed to increase its sales volume by 510% in the same period after selling 143,900 wearable NFTs.

What MANA holders can expect in 2023
There is good news for Decentraland altcoin holders as Coincodex predicts that it is possible to increase the value in the coming days.
