How to invest in the metaverse

Metaverse projects are very popular lately when it comes to high risk investments. Many wouldn’t even classify them as investments, as they are more of a game that you buy parts of, most of which will likely never return any type of profit. With that being said, we have seen virtual property in metaverse projects like Decentraland sell for $2.4 million, with digital land sales topping over $500 million last year. Decentraland itself is valued somewhere between 800 million and 1.4 billion U.S. dollars, and the whole metaverse market size is expected to be over 47 billion this year (2022).

Investing in Metaverse Companies

Few metaverse projects are listed on the actual stock markets. Out of the companies that are listed on NASDAQ, NYSE, or OTC exchanges, most are accessories or technologies used in metaverse and related games, not the actual projects or companies. Let’s take a look at those publicly traded stocks first…
