Today’s move by Zilliqa’s native token may have been triggered by an announcement from Metapolis, a yet-to-be-launched metaverse virtual world built on Zilliqa, which said it has partnered with the photo-sharing and awards app Agora to deliver blockchain-based solutions.

Agora is described as a global talent awards app where individuals can upload creations and participate in contests to win support and visibility.
