How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

How to Get Rich in the MetaVerse

InvestorEducation / Metaverse Jan 20, 2022 - 03:57 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

InvestorEducation

Whilst my forthcoming in-depth analysis will point out the primary mechanisms and strategies for becoming wealthy, however here is what one needs to do to fully capitalise on the metaverse where basically you get out what you put in in terms of effort.


So here are what I consider to be what one needs to do to fully capitalise on the metaverse far beyond mere investing in a few stocks, listed in order of effort involved. And in order to keep this concise I will focus on Decentraland and SANDBOX.

1. INVEST IN CRYPTO CURRENCIES

What do you think is the currency of the virtual worlds? Crypto's. where each meta world will favour it's own crypto. For decentralised land that crypto is MANA and SAND for the soon to be released SANDBOX.

As you can see from the following charts that both metaverse crypto's have bolted higher following Facebook's announcement. Still I consider this to be early days so I will be accumulating limited exposure to both virtual world crypto's, a case of invest and forget to wake up perhaps in a few years time to many multiples of where the crypto's are trading today, a bit like buying bitcoin 10 years ago.

Before you all rush out to buy SAND, understand that about 300 million is going to be unlocked on 1st of December (current 900 mill) which 'should' suppress the price for a month or so, with a decreasing amount released every 3 months until the maximum supply of 3 billion is achieved by the end of 2024. Nevertheless SANDBOX release is going to be accompanied by a lot of FOMO.

MANA total supply is 2.8 billion of which 1.8 billion is in circulating. However 400 million was been burned in transactions which means the effective maximum supply is now 2.2 billion (they no longer burn MANA).

2. INVEST IN VIRTUAL LAND

The next easiest step would be to buy a parcel of land in the virtual world. Either to sell on or to build something on at a later date. I'll do a video when I have done it myself to illustrate the process.

3. EARNING POINTS BY PLAYING GAMES

Perform activities that earn points , given that the virtual worlds are actually gaming environments then you can earn some points / tokens by playing the various games they include. Personally I would not recommend going down this route other than to the extent to understand the capabilities of the platform in terms of future prospects as playing games is a consumer activity whereas my focus is in terms of investing capital and creating content, perhaps creating GAMES rather than playing them. You don't want to be sitting there for hours a day clicking a mouse just to earn a few points!

4. Working in the Virtual World

There are thousands of job openings already in the meta-verse! Where? in the META CASINO"s where players come to gamble their SAND or MANA and are greeted and catered to by HOSTS, and that's your first entry level job as a HOST! To populate the meta casinos and keep the gamblers engaged where for about 20 hours of work per week one earns $200 per month. Not much but we are at the very beginnings of the META economy and there are higher better paid positions in the Casinos as well.

Decentraland also has job fairs from time to time where various companies seek to recruit. So one can get a job right now in the metaverse, just don't expect to get paid much by western standards.

If you really want to capitalise on the metaverse?

You have to become a creator!

LEARN to create objects in Decentralised land and Roblox etc , which in fact are NFT's! Even if they may not yet trade as such as given that they predate the crypto NFT craze. This is what I tell my kids to do as I personally don't have the time to go down this route i.e. at this point in time my plates full with machine learning.

  • CREATE Wearable's
  • CREATE NFT's
  • CREATE Games
  • HOST Virtual Events
  • FREELANCE Your Services

What I am doing

My initial focus will be on buying LAND in the virtual worlds with a view to resale at a later date or given further knowledge perhaps build something on them that generates revenues of sorts.
