As of this writing, Pavia, Cardano’s first Metaverse project, has over 22,000 landowners holding pavia.io land NFTs. As the first Cardano Metaverse, Pavia was named after Pavia, the Italian birthplace of Gerolamo (Jerome) Cardano in 1501.
The NFT-Maker platform has generated hundreds of thousands of NFT projects for the Cardano ecosystem. The increase in the number of pieces of non-fungible art and projects can be attributed to both the growth of the Cardano network and the resurgence of the NFT industry.
In reference to Cardano’s adoption, Charles Hoskinson said:
Remember how I said Cardano would have thousands of assets and DApps? Well, I was mistaken; millions of native assets have been granted, and DApps number in the hundreds.
According to Hoskinson, the Vasil hard fork will result in unprecedented growth for the Cardano ecosystem. “Many Cardano DApps are waiting for the Vasil hard fork to launch in June to profit from pipelining,” he said, adding that the growth in TVL might just be getting started.
