LAND represents the NFT of virtual real estate in the Decentaland game. Owning this allows one to make developments on the virtual land and share it with the gaming community. LANDS are divided into parcels and districts. Parcels are plots of land owned by individual users, while districts are a collection of these plots. A user who owns multiple parcels of LAND side-by-side can also covert them into Estates.
MANA on the other hand is the transactional native token of the Decentraland universe. It is used for buying NFTs and also for voting amongst the Decentraland community to make key decisions in the development of the platform
Playing Decentraland is pretty simple. The game can be accessed through a browser or one can download the game on their desktop. Users can join in as guests and begin their journey by linking their crypto wallet. Metamask is the preferred partner for storing all the NFTs. Users can also buy LAND on the OpenSea marketplace.
