The global cryptocurrency market capitalization stood at $822.98 billion on Sunday, January 8, registering a 24-hour loss of 0.24%. Decentrland (MANA) and The Sandbox (SAND) turned out to be the biggest crypto gainers today as new projects like FightOut, Dash 2Trade, Calvaria, and RobotEra continue to record impressive achievements in their presale stages.
Biggest Crypto Gainers Today
Decentraland stands among the most popular Metaverse platforms as the virtual reality platform runs on the Ethereum ecosystem. Its popularity rose as Metaverse tokens gained increased attention. The Decentraland platform essentially uses two tokens, MANA and LAND; an ERC-20 token and a non-fungible ERC-721 token respectively. These two are critical for the success of the Decentraland project.
Decentraland (MANA) is a top gainer today as the MANA token is trading for $0.36 at press time, after gaining 19% in the last week, and 9% in the last fortnight. This metaverse coin is the project to watch in 2023.
MANA/USD Daily Chart
MANA price is projected to be bullish for the long term as the token attempts to break past a consolidation below the $0.35 level. The price is currently facing a rejection offered by the 50-day SMA as bulls attempt to flip this resistance into support. If they prevail, MANA price will set its eye on the next resistance offered by the 100-day SMA at the $0.48 level, and in ambitious cases, the 200-day SMA at $0.67.
On the downside, if bulls cannot crack past the immediate barrier at $0.35, MANA price could continue consolidating below the formidable $0.35 level and potentially entrance further losses that may see MANA price record new range lows.
The RSI indicator at 39 and the MACD still moving in the negative shows that MANA is tending toward the downside. However, given that both these momentum indicators are moving flat, it shows that bulls are putting in a good fight that may see the MANA price increase.
The Sandbox stands among the original OG-metaverse building games. It went live in early 2011, advanced to challenge the likes of Decentraland head-to-head, and likely came out on top judging from the number of active users.
In The Sandbox, gamers can build a metaverse of their choice. The project employs a distinct lego-like architecture with all the editing tools available at the disposal of gamers, including but not limited to Game Maker and Voxel Editor, which are necessary for users to create their constructions on land.
The native token behind The Sandbox, SAND is trading at $0.5, and while this makes it a penny crypto by definition, it is a top gainer! The SAND token recorded its all-time high (ATH) price of over $7 in November 2021, which makes it the perfect penny crypto under $1 to buy in 2023. Should The Sandbox continue growing and securing more high-profile partnerships in 2023, the token will likely surge above $1 in 2023.

The fundamentals are strong for the SAND price as the community ride on the hype surrounding its recent partnership with Habbo for the opening of Habbo Hotel in the Metaverse. This exciting partnership will allow Sandbox and Habbo communities to explore new experiences within the virtual space.
SAND/USD Daily Chart
Sand is trading with a bullish bias today after gaining more than 20% in the last seven days to trade at the current price of $0.467.
The SAND price is facing immediate resistance at the $0.48 level, which is highly attainable if bulls can raise their buying pressure to maintain the current trajectory fueled by the recent partnership. The technical indicators are also favoring the bulls as both the RSI and MACD indicators are pointing upward to indicate more buyers coming into the SAND market.
However, if buying pressure reduces and the bears recover the market, then the SAND price can drop to the immediate support at $0.43 and in extreme cases retrace lower to the $0.4 and worse, the $0.38 levels.

FightOut is a move to earn (M2E) crypto set to enable users to earn by being active through gamification. In this way, the project motivates users to keep going as they will not be discouraged from the very start by expensive starter fees or buying NFTs since the whole concept is developed differently.
Working behind the FightOut curtains is a team that believes every person has the right to a healthy lifestyle and that it should not cost a lot to achieve their workout goals. Instead, the users should receive rewards for making an effort to stay active. The users will also be able to test their skills against Al (artificial intelligence) or attend the fights of other players.
The project is currently in the presale stage and has raised more than $2.6 million as investors continue buying the project’s native token, FGHT.
Dash 2 Trade (D2T)
Dash 2 Trade has gone live with its pre-listing over-funding round, which comes as the previous $13.4 million hard cap has been increased to $15.4 million.
Now that the presale has concluded we’d like to share an exciting development!

During its presale, the project recorded one of the most successful runs ever as investors moved quickly to acquire D2T tokens so that they could secure themselves a place on this much-talked-about professional trading analytics platform.
As the last phase of the presale concluded earlier than what was planned at inception, the team behind Dash 2 Trade ecosystem resolved to extend the presale so that buyers would have more opportunities to buy or acquire the D2T tokens.
The presale stage saw the projects raise almost $14 million, which was a stunning achievement given the project has only started recently.
Calvaria is an in-depth NFT-based strategy card battling game that has managed to record strong traction in its ongoing presale, and still is! The native token of the Calvaria ecosystem is RIA, which is currently auctioning for $0.032. The figure increases as the presale continues stage after stage.
At its core, the Calvaria game is set in the afterlife, beyond the veil of death with its main game being Duels of Eternity. The game requires users to fight their deck of cards against each other so that they earn and upgrade their non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
In this amazing game, players that turn out to be the strongest, such that their decks of cards champion over other competitors, become the ultimate force on the battlefield and earn the highest rewards. The penny RIA token is required to purchase NFT decks and is used as an in-game transaction token.
In the presale stage, Calvaria’s RIA token has managed to raise more than $2.67 million, with only 440,000 left, which makes it the ideal time to buy RIA and get into this top gainer today.
RobotEra is an exceptional addition to the play-to-earn (P2E) metaverse space, coming in the form of a planet-rebuilding game. It is designed similarly to Sandbox in terms of thematic provisions, where players have the responsibility to rebuild Planet Taro and establish it to its former glory.
The native token of the RobotEra project is TARO, which is currently auctioning for $0.02 in the presale stage. TARO serves as in-game currency and is required to purchase NFTs, such as Robots and Land in the game, to get started.
RobotEra has distinguished itself from other metaverse projects as it is a shared multiverse that is linked to other worlds and NFT communities. The project has successfully merged P2E gaming, NFT ownership, building, and monetization in one shared ecosystem.
From the beginning, the team behind the RobotEra concept wanted to develop a frictionless P2E experience, which explains why users can earn through various functions in the game.
