Mark Twain had a famous quote… “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore”. Little did he know, today, we in fact DO have more land to buy in “the Metaverse“.
Sure it may not be as conventional, as the realities of your own private residence. However, investors are paying top dollar for lots (or parcels) available in the metaverse. In November, the company “Republic Realm” was said to have paid 4.3 million dollars to own parcels of land in the metaverse of “The Sandbox”. It was the largest digital property sale, publicized to date.
Whether you are on board with the idea, or extremely skeptical about it, the fact is that a parallel alternate tech universe seems to be in its infancy. the only logical answer I have is, will Neo save us from the Metaverse, like he did in the Matrix?
