Key Takeaways:

  • Social media giant Facebook changed company name to “Meta”, aiming to “bring virtual reality to reality.”
  • Metaverse platform Decentraland’s bulls caught the drift and pumped its native token MANA over 560%.
  • The digital asset might be cooking a new rally, thanks to a bullish setup.

YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com) – Mark Zuckerberg last week rebranded Facebook to “Meta” and shifted a majority of his focus from social media to the emerging “metaverse,” a virtual reality space where users’ digital avatars can interact with each other and various digital objects.

The buzz around the news benefitted Decentraland (MANA), a self-proclaimed metaverse platform where users can buy and sell virtual properties.

Its native token rocketed 560% to hit an all-time high of $4.99 in just four days ending Oct 31. The rally subsided over the next two days, leading the digital asset lower to $3.14 Tuesday. However, technical indicators show that MANA could be gearing up for another 80% bull run.

The digital asset has been forming a Bullish Pennant, an upside continuation setup consisting of two converging trendlines that envelop the price action. It typically follows up with a price rally to the upside, with the price target at a distance equal to the previous uptrend’s height (flagpole).

Why Decentraland?

Analytical platform Santiment stated that Decentraland was the top-trending topic on social media on Nov 1. Citing Facebook’s rebranding, Santiment added that MANA’s success secret “no longer appears to be a secret.”

Vijay Ayyar, the head of cryptocurrency exchange Luno’s Asia-Pacific branch, saw Facebook’s shift to Meta and Decentraland’s surge as a sign of metaverse’s growing adoption.

I read it as an interpretation of a vote of confidence amongst both speculators and investors that this concept of a metaverse is now taking a serious turn in terms of reaching mainstream consciousness and — soon — adoption.

The platform also offers its users to socialize within the metaverse, build on the purchased land, and play games.
