Millions of dollars poured into virtual land in metaverse

 Many people spend millions on properties, but not in expensive places like New York or Beverly Hills, which don't even exist on the surface of the Earth.

"Metaverse is the next form of social networking. You can go to festivals, concerts or museums like in real life," said Andrew Kiguel, CEO of, a real estate investment company. on metaverse and virtual assets, say.

In the virtual universe, users will interact with each other through animated characters, similar to a real-time game with many players. Currently, people can only access the metaverse via a regular computer screen, but Meta and many other companies are building worlds that allow users to participate while wearing virtual reality headsets like the Oculus.

Electronic asset management firm Grayscale thinks the metaverse could become a $1 trillion business in the near future. Many famous artists such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, DJ Marshmello have also started performing performances in the metaverse. Paris Hilton holds a New Year's Eve party on her virtual island.

Andrew Kiguel's company spent about $2.5 million on a virtual piece of land in Decentraland, one of the most popular metaverse worlds today. Janine Yorio's virtual real estate developer Republic Realm spent $4.3 million on a land in the Sandbox. She said the company has sold 100 virtual islands for $15,000 each. "Now they're more than $300,000 a piece, about the same as the average home price in the US," Yorio said.

"The virtual world is just as important to many people as the real world. It's not about what we believe, but what the future will do," commented real estate broker Oren Alexander.

Similar to real life, Kiguel thinks that the metaverse will revolve around three elements: "location, location, and location". "There will be areas that people focus on when they start entering the metaverse. Those are places that are much more valuable than areas with no activity at all," he said.

Such high-traffic areas are attracting large investments. For example, Snoop Dogg is building a virtual villa on land in Sandbox and one person spent $450,000 to become the singer's virtual neighbor.

Buying land in the virtual world is quite simple, buyers can choose directly from the platform or through a developer. Investors can build houses on their land and increase its interactivity.
