Decentraland (MANA), a virtual reality platform powered by the Ethereum blockchain, saw its price rise after launching its Metaverse Pride Parade. It uses MANA tokens to get LAND tokens and buy assets on the Decentraland marketplace.
The recent loss follows an incident and recovery report about last week's attack on Elrond's network.
The Elrond drop follows an incident and recovery report following a recent attack, reflecting a tendency for markets to react poorly to security incidents.
