The virtual land selling for millions

September 7, 2018 -- Prospectors are moving into a city that doesn’t exist, spending millions of dollars buying up land parcels in the virtual city of Decentraland.

Decentraland is a virtual reality platform powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Users can create, experience, and monetise content and applications. Land in Decentraland is permanently owned by members of the community, giving them full control over their creations. Users claim ownership of virtual land on a blockchain-based ledger of parcels. They then control what content is published to their portion of land, which is identified by a set of X,Y co-ordinates. Contents can range from static 3D scenes to interactive systems such as games.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
