Metropolis, a comprehensive platform that combines commerce, gaming, and immersive experiences, has recently become a part of the Cointelegraph Accelerator program.

This 360-degree curated universe is designed to seamlessly bridge digital and physical realms, offering an innovative space for properties, avatars, and gaming.

Prominent companies like Nike and Gucci have already leveraged such platforms to create lucrative side businesses through branded NFT sales, amassing $260 million.

The rise of curated NFT marketplaces like Blur, which leads in trading volume despite only contributing to 4% of NFT sales, underscores the industry's trend towards quality and community-focused spaces.

As the NFT trading volume reaches $1.5 billion, the significance of these specialised marketplaces is becoming increasingly apparent, highlighting their role in fostering brand engagement and offering a focused content approach.
