Coinbase diversifies its roadmap with metaverse projects

As the news broke, the SAND price hit an intraday high of $1.38 within hours. Thus, one of the biggest metaverse projects in the market is leading the recovery. At the time of writing, the SAND price is trading at an average of $1.35. 24-hour trading volume increased more than 62% to $588 million. Thus, it compensated some of the recent losses in a short time.

Coinbase previously announced that it will list 45 different Ethereum-based ERC-20 tokens and 6 SPL tokens based on the Solana network.

Sand’s final climb helps make up for some of his loss.
