Bottom line:

Several metaverse cryptos or tokens are not listed on any major exchanges, making it difficult for investors to trust them. In addition to that, the smaller tokens bring more risk due to lack of liquidity, high volatility, and chances of a project failure.

Meanwhile, the investors should carefully evaluate the assets with due diligence, as many crypto scams have recently been witnessed. Plus, the volatility and higher risks in the decentralized platforms make it riskier than the traditional centralized platforms.
