So here are the steps for buying land on Decentraland:
The first thing is to visit Decentraland’s Marketplace and sign in or sign up if you aren’t a user already.
Once signed in, browse to ‘Parcels and Estates.’ then, click on ‘View All.’
Select a parcel of LAND
The next step is to browse through the available pieces of land and select your preferred choice of land.
By buying land in Decentraland directly from the marketplace, you get to see the neighboring areas and the proximity to famous areas.
Once you have selected your piece of virtual land, proceed to click on it to read about it in detail. Here, you will see the price of the land in MANA, availability, and the owner’s name.
Tap on ‘Buy’ to make the purchase.
Connect your wallet to the Decentraland Marketplace
To make the purchase, you will need to ensure that your wallet is connected to your account as the land will be sent to your wallet as an NFT once the purchase is successful and completed.
If you don’t have a supported wallet, you can download wallets such as MetaMask and Trust Wallet. Remember, your preferred wallet needs to have enough MANA or ethereum (ETH) for you to make the purchase.
Additionally, you need to have some extra tokens to take care of the gas fee.
Confirm your virtual LAND
Once the purchase is complete, you can confirm your LAND on your wallet.
If you are using Trust Wallet, you can confirm the same under ‘Collectibles’ and under the ‘NFTs’ tab in the MetaMask wallet.
Each piece of LAND on Decentraland measures 16 meters by 16 meters and is represented as an NFT.
The number of pieces of land on Decentraland is capped at 90,000 which helps create scarcity.
