In these virtual lands, users can create a variety of applications and structures, including games, markets and stores for the sale of digital (NFTs) and physical products through cryptocurrencies, usually with META or DG. Through the DG token, which will be the most common reward to be acquired (or mined) through games, users can access a marketplace and purchase a series of items categorized as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), ranging from items, 3D models to the Decentraland universe and many others. DG can also be traded as an asset, as with most cryptocurrencies.
