Metaverse Crypto coins saw their first burst in value at the end of 2021, when Bitcoin and Ethereum soared to new all-time highs. As markets stabilize, Metaverse cryptocurrencies are creating more complex experiences and applications for NFTs. This article takes a look at the top five sub-$10 Metaverse cryptocurrency coins to watch in 2022, ranked by current price, from low to high.
#5 Meta Hero (HERO) – $0.1
Originally launched in June 2021, Metahero is referred to as the gateway to the Metaverse. The project is building a next-generation metaverse that will allow users to digitize themselves and other real-world objects in the virtual world.
Metahero has partnered with Wold Digital World (WDW), the inventors of the 16k 3D modeling technology used by CD Project, the development team behind Cyberpunk 2077.
Using Ultra-HD photogrammetric scanning technology, Metahero aims to bring the next 10 million users to the Metaverse. Users can create their own 3D avatars, scan and create 3D NFTs, and use HERO tokens to transact in their ecosystem.
Metahero is currently in development and recently announced the official presale of Everdome. Everdome will provide a destination for Metahero’s technology to live, communicate and thrive, taking the Metaverse experience to the next level. Everdome will integrate a web3 experience for those interested in a highly realistic version of the metaverse.
Metahero is worth checking out in 2022, as its design and overall vision are some of the most compelling out there. In addition, the partnership with WDW means that the team will most likely be able to deliver on their promise.
You can buy HERO on KuCoin, PancakeSwap and more.
WAX #4 (WAXP) – $0.39
Launched in 2017, the Worldwide Asset eXchange™ (WAX) is one of the best blockchains currently available for Metaverse cryptocurrencies. Moreover, thanks to the Proof-of-stake consensus blockchain, WAX is the greenest Metaverse blockchain in the world.
WAX offers dozens of games on its platform, including Alien Worlds, the most popular crypto game on the market with more than 1.4 million users in the last 30 days.
WAX allows users unfamiliar with cryptocurrency technicalities to enjoy blockchain-based NFT winable games. The WAX cloud wallet allows users to easily create a cryptocurrency wallet without any technical knowledge or installation.
WAX introduces the WAXP token as a native currency on the platform. As one of the most popular blockchains for Metaverse crypto coins, WAX’s current market cap of $757 million could easily double or triple by 2022, especially given multi-billion dollar projects like Enjin Coin and Theta Network.
You can buy WAXP on Binance, KuCoin, Crypto.com, Bittrex, etc.
#3 Decentraland (MANA) – $2.94
Originally launched in February 2020, Decentraland is currently Metaverse’s highest-valued cryptocurrency with a market cap of $5.3 billion. Plus, a fun fact is that Decentraland’s MANA is also the Metaverse token with the most holders, with over 198,000 at the time of writing.

THETA had recorded huge price increases in 2021, reaching a new record in April 2021. As the ecosystem continues to develop, THETA is worth checking out in 2022 as the market could potentially gain momentum for a major bull run and peak in Q3 and Q4 of this year.

#1 The Sandbox (SAND) – $4.78
The most hyped Metaverse coin in crypto, launching its token in August 2020, is The Sandbox, a blockchain-based 3D virtual world that offers players RPG-like mechanics and high-quality graphics.
Sandbox is similar to Decentraland, but because it offers a full-fledged desktop client, it offers a more immersive, higher-quality experience than its competitors.
The sandbox has also received a lot of attention, especially from icons like Snoop Dogg, who announced plans to build the Snoopverse, his own virtual playground.
SAND is valued at over $4.3 billion, making it the second most valuable project on this list. SAND also has over 96,000 holders, making it one of the most popular Metaverse crypto coins on the market.
As the SAND ecosystem continues to grow this year, the project’s valuation could easily reach $10 billion. The metaverse is still in its infancy, and the general public is still a few years behind early adopters. In addition, SAND is one of the most popular options for any Metaverse wallet as it has great prospects for 2022.
You can buy SAND on Binance, KuCoin, Uniswap, Gemini, Crypto.com, Kraken, etc.
