The Metaverse may be new, but it’s definitely here to stay with a mission to revolutionize the way we see the world and participate in it.
Simply put, the Metaverse is a digital representation of worlds where users can come together to interact. Through the use of virtual or complete avatars, users will be able to play, work or even hang out with other users in these digital domains. Think Minecraft meets reality.
World-renowned companies such as Meta (formerly known as Facebook) (NASDAQ:), Disney (NYSE:) and even Coca-Cola (NYSE:) have become part of the Metaverse, touting their accomplishments and progress in space all On the internet.
More recently, HSBC Has become the world’s leading provider of financial services to acquire its first metaverse property in The sandbox Metaverse, which will be developed to engage and connect the company with sports, esports and gaming enthusiasts.
According to MetaMetric Solutions, Metaverse real estate sales topped US$500 million in 2021, with a projection to reach one billion in 2022. Obviously, the introduction of the sale of property and land in the metaverse has opened the doors for the real estate revolution. Here’s how:
Reinventing real estate investment
Unlike real estate in the real world, the Metaverse is reinventing real estate investing. Real estate investing in the metaverse opens doors not only for traditional real estate investors, but also for crypto investors looking to explore the real estate market.
The metaverse creates a nice buffer between the two, creating a working ecosystem for anyone looking to explore each other. As a bonus, investing in a virtual property eliminates all of the extra paperwork, involvement of middlemen, and fees that come with conventional property buying. It’s a win-win situation for all parties involved.
The beauty of the metaverse is in its borderless property – pun intended.
No matter where you are in the world, you could be in Singapore or even London and still attend. As long as you have a digital crypto wallet, such as Metamask, you have the choice to start investing without the need or involvement of third parties.
Through the Metaverse, users will be able to earn revenue not only from real estate appreciation, but also from hosting exclusive events on their virtual properties.
As a user, you will also have the option of creating your own business in the metaverse. For example, you can create a restaurant or an art gallery and charge users for experiencing your spaces. As for the art gallery, you can even charge NFT artists who want to exhibit their art in your gallery.
On top of that, instead of starting your own business, you can also be hired full-time by a metaverse company to run it, creating an alternative source of income for yourself.
It is believed that the Metaverse will become a fully functioning economy in the near future, creating a one-of-a-kind virtual experience for all to enjoy.
Real estate companies such as brickyard, a UK-based property investment platform is at the forefront of this revolution by partnering with Kingdom, a social impact-focused metaverse to bridge the gap between reality and the metaverse. Bricktrade will offer real estate investors the opportunity to own digital twins of their real properties in the metaverse.
This collaboration will create a unique experience for all, further enhancing the real estate industry both in reality and virtually.
