Decentraland (MANA)introduced by Ariel Meilich and Esteban Ordano in 2020 cryptocurrencyhas not been able to capitalize on some of the positive developments that have happened in its ecosystem this year as it is ending 2022 in a “battered” state.
Over the past 12 months, the digital coin has lost 91% of its value, failing to recover from massive price declines triggered by a series of unfortunate events that have plagued the crypto space and growing uncertainty in the market.
According to last tracking of coingeckoat the time of writing, the digital token is changing hands at $0.2941 and has lost 10.3% of its value over the past seven days.
