Investing in the Metaverse

The term Metaverse might sound strange to many people, but the idea it embodies has been around for decades. It’s recently received an increase in popularity as many new projects have started to emerge.

If you have been a reader of popular books like Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson or movies such as Ready Player One, then the metaverse isn’t really new. It has long been featured in science fiction movies and novels of the past and on its way to becoming real.

But, what is the metaverse and how can we invest in it?

In this article, we will discuss the metaverse and how to invest in it.

What is the Metaverse

The metaverse is a 3D digital world said to be the next Internet. It is a world that combines aspects of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and extended reality (XR) with the real world.

In layman’s terms, the metaverse can be viewed as a boundless digital world where we can hang out, play games, go to concerts and even work together through a collection of interrelated virtual words.

Imagine a world where humans can live, work and play in an alternative digital reality. The Metaverse is expected to replace today’s mobile internet like how Web 3.0 is expected to succeed web 2.0. The closest thing we have to a metaverse today is games like Fortnite, Roblox and Second Life.

When the Metaverse finally launches, it is expected to transform every industry as well as create lots of business opportunities. This will make it an exciting area to invest in.

How to Invest in the Metaverse

True investors know that it’s never too late to invest early. While the metaverse is still in its infant stages, opportunities are already springing up for people to invest in its potential success.

A recent article by Bloomberg intelligence estimated that at the end of 2024, the Market size of Metaverses will be worth USD 800bn. This means it could be a very profitable area to invest in.

So let’s take a look at possible ways you can invest in the Metaverse.

· Metaverse stocks

You can invest in them by buying Metaverse stocks. Metaverse stocks are shares in companies at the forefront of the Metaverse’s development. A popular example of a company you can invest in is Facebook. Mark Zukerberg’s Facebook is at the very forefront of building the Metaverse. The social Media giant recently launched smart glasses after partnering with Rayban to build its first augmented reality.

Other companies you can also invest in include Microsoft, UnitySoftware, Roblox, Amazon, Walt Disney, and Nvidia.

· Metaverse exchange-traded funds (ETFs)

Investors can also join the growing metaverse industry by buying a metaverse ETF. A metaverse stock ETF allows people to invest in the companies that are already building the metaverse or are planning to do so later by buying into the fund.

An example is the The Roundhill Ball Metaverse ETF (META), which allows anyone to invest in and reap the benefits of the metaverse.

· Virtual world tokens

Virtual world tokens are tokens of the virtual reality industry. These digital tokens are used in the VR word to buy lands and in-game collectibles.

An example is the Metaverse Index (MVI) token, which gives holders access to tokens from crypto projects like non-fungible tokens (NFTs), online gaming and virtual worlds.

Decentraland’s tokens are also perfect examples. Decentraland is a decentralized virtual reality platform where users buy land and play games. It’s the largest virtual world in the NFT space. There are two tokens on Decentraland: MANA and LAND. MANA is the token used for transactions, while LAND is a NFT representing land on the platform.

· Metaverse NFTs

NFTs are like digital versions of the real world. They digitally represent anything from unique art, in-game items and collectibles to even brands!

Thankfully, Decentraland and Sandbox have made it very easy to buy virtual land and create environments with NFTs.

As the metaverse gradually becomes a reality, it is expected to see more investment opportunities arise in the near future.
