4. Mines of Dalarnia (DAR)
- 24-hour Trading Volume: $13 million
- Market Cap: $89 million
- Unit Price: $0.72
Launched in November 2021, Mines of Dalarnia is an action-adventure Metaverse game built on the Chromia blockchain. The game features a 2D platformer that enables users to mine for minerals and upgrade their characters, increasing attributes and improving equipment.
All the items and actions in Mines of Dalarnia are registered on the blockchain. This prevents malicious actors from abusing the system and provides full ownership of assets to the players. In addition, the game features a play-to-earn aspect where users can earn tokens and rewards for playing the game.
The DAR token is the native utility token to the game, enabling holders to stake the asset for resources and level-ups. In addition, land-owners in the Dalarnia Metaverse can earn DAR in rent and spend it in the marketplace to upgrade their equipment.
The game is in its alpha version, with the mainnet build release scheduled for Q1 2022. Even with the recent bear market, Mines of Dalarnia has some of the strongest community support, and their development team managed to stay on track with their roadmap.
In a recent update, the Mines of Dalarnia team announced that they are on track to delivering Mines of Dalarnia 2.0 by the end of Q1. In addition, they plan to launch using Binance Smart Chain to handle DAR and NFT transactions, which means minimal gas fees to users.
Overall, Mines of Dalarnia is a highly underrated project with a competent development team. With the mainnet scheduled to release in the next few months, it’s worth keeping an eye on DAR as its price could see significant gains once the mainnet launches.
You can purchase DAR on Binance, Crypto.com, PancakeSwap, and more.
3. Ethernity Chain (ERN)
- 24-hour Trading Volume: $15 million
- Market Cap: $66 million
- Unit Price: $5.16
Launched in March 2021, Ethernity Chain is the world’s first authenticated and licensed NFT platform. Ethernity’s NFTs feature big-name brands and IPs in sports, content, collectibles, and technology.
Ethernity features 32+ collections with over 100k NFTs. Many of the collections are sports-themed, and if you’re a Soccer or Football fan, you’re bound to find an NFT of your favorite player.
Because the NFTs are fully authenticated and licensed, the price of the collectibles can sometimes exceed thousands of dollars. However, this exclusive license makes the Ethernity chain unique and gives the platform an advantage over traditional non-authenticated NFT marketplaces.
ERN is the native ERC-20 token to the Ethernity Chain platform and is used for transactions and staking. Users can get LP tokens by providing liquidity to an ERN/ETH pool and stake these tokens for a high APY of over 66%!
Ethernity Chain is worth keeping an eye on as their exclusive sports and entertainment NFT collection is one of the best designed and sought out on the market. Ethernity’s ecosystem shares similarities with Theta’s NFT marketplace, which features a valuation in the multi-billions. With the current valuation of $66 million, Ethernity is a highly underrated project that could quickly explode in price later this year.
You can purchase ERN on Binance, KuCoin, Uniswap, Poloniex, and more.

When the trophy icon on the top right of the video turns green, you can claim your rewards which will be deposited directly into your wallet.
