The metaverse is rapidly evolving. We are surrounded by a huge amount of news about its changes, the rise and fall of cryptocurrencies, and the introduction of games in this sphere. The more such news we see, the more often we ask ourselves – is it worth investing a penny in this digital universe and how to do it?

Note. This article is not intended as investment advice or a call to invest. It is intended solely for informational purposes. You are solely responsible for your trading and investment decisions.

How to invest in Metaverse?

Buying crypto

To invest in the metaverse, you can simply buy cryptocurrency. To do this, you need to go through an exchange platform like Binance, Kraken, Etoro or Coinbase. Once you have obtained your tokens, you can store them in your digital wallet like Metamask.

Buy NFTs

Another possible solution to invest your money is to buy NFTs (for the broke, you can also see how to get a free NFT drop).

The best-known marketplace for this is Opensea. Most of the NFTs available on this marketplace are deployed on the Ethereum Blockchain (ETH). It will be possible to buy accessories or skin like in Fortnite.

By buying them at the right time, you will be able to resell them at a higher price and make a profit. These profits can be reinvested to buy limited edition clothing, for example.

Buying land for resale or rent

Investing in land is a good idea to diversify your income sources. With this kind of investment, you can become a web3 real estate agent, and it can be very profitable.

Since land is not infinite, you must buy it before it sells out or wait for the right time to buy it on the secondary market. You will then have to define the price of your tenants’ rents according to the returns you aim for. Then get comfortable while you wait for your monthly income (payments in USD or in the metaverse currencies).

When you are fully satisfied with the results or thinking about investing elsewhere, you can simply move on to the “resale” stage like any other perfect real estate investor.

Investing your time to make money

If you don’t have the means to invest money directly in the metaverse, you can always invest your time. Organize events and invite people to get visibility. Create your business and monetize your creations by creating your own NFTs.

7 tips to be a better investor

We do not encourage you to invest in any particular cryptocurrency or NFT. It’s up to you to make your own investment decisions. However, here is a list of 7 tips to help you invest better in the metaverse.

1. Take a walk before you buy

Before rushing to buy a piece of land, create an account with an avatar and walk around the world (and it’s free!). You can see if you really want to invest your money in this or that world. If you like it and find an interest in it, you can go there with peace of mind.

2. Only invest what you are ready to lose

Invest the money you can afford to lose and never succumb to the temptation of debt: this should be your credo. Indeed, if it is true that the capital gains can be much more interesting than the Livret A, you are never safe from a crash that will destroy your investment and your assets. So never go all-in on investment as risky and speculative as this one: invest intelligently.

3. Start by investing your time rather than your money

You don’t invest in something you don’t understand. If the world of Blockchain is still unclear to you, it is probably better to invest your time in understanding this technology, to be able to understand the market. This will only serve you in the long run. 

4. Do a market study

If you plan to invest, study real estate prices, just as you would in the real world. Take several indicators to get the best idea of the fair price of the asset and its upside potential. Make calculations, looking at the cost/benefit ratio each time. You should not hesitate to invest your time in research before investing your money.

5. Choose the location first

As in real estate, the location is the most important, you should never work on the spur of the moment. You must always think in terms of return. Is the plot of land frequented? Is it near a strategic location? For example, user Andie Sparkle didn’t hesitate to spend 70,900 SAND ($458,000) to be Snoop Dogg‘s neighbour!

6. Invest at the right time, no FOMO

FOMO is the Fear of Missing Out, which means compulsive investment for fear of missing an opportunity. It affects all of us, even the most experienced. Don’t give in to this fear; weigh your decisions carefully.

7. Secure your assets
