Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is the big thing happening in the crypto world. So, it is the same in Metaverse. In the simple world NFT is a digital asset that is unique. Still you want to know what a NFT is, read here.

And lots more.

You can create or buy these NFT and use them in the Metaverse. So, buying NFT is a great invest in metaverse option.

  • Earn royalty for the NFT, when it is sold any number of times.

If you see the internet space, you will come across 4-5 new metaverse project pop up now and then. Many developers, individual are rushing into metaverse project or its related technologies. Many of them are in need of fund to start up their metaverse project.

Risk Involvement To Invest In Metaverse

Every investment has a risk involved in it . So, there is risk involvement to invest in metaverse. of now, I can see three types of risk risk involvement to invest in metaverse.

  • Financial Risk
  • Emotional Risk
  • Physical Risk

Now let me  briefly explain each of them 

Financial Risk

Investing in Metaverse is a high risk high return proposition. There are 3 financial risks involved in investment in the metaverse.

Metaverse might be a bubble

For everyone to be convinced that there is a future in the metaverse, it is difficult as of now. Many of you might not believe it will be the next technology after the mobile phone revolution. 

Metaverse might be a bubble. It might die 5-6 years from now. But, I am bullish on Metaverse. It is the future of today’s technology. But for most of you it might not be.

Intrinsic value of Digital Assets

Buying Land in the metaverse, NFT, is a good investment. But, you can be sure whether that particular land is worth it. If nobody buys the land from you or nobody rents your land. It  would be a waste of investment.

But, if the metaverse becomes a super hit, it will be the best investment you made in your lifetime.

NFT Not Picking Up

Suppose you bought a NFT or created a NFT by some artist. So, you have invested some amount of money in it. If nobody buys your NFT, it will be a waste of investment. But for high return there will obviously be a high risk involved. 

Emotional Risk

In the metaverse you can do all the things you haven’t thought of. Avatar of you in the metaverse is such a thing. In the metaverse you can make your own avatar. You can decide to choose skin color, height, apparels to wear, etc.

And it might be after a few years you might love your avatar of metaverse more than yourself. You will be emotionally attached to it. So, for some people it might be difficult for them to get out of the metaverse. It will impact their emotional mind.

Physical & Health  Risk

As the technology grew, it brought more risk to our health. It might be metaverse that will bring physical and health risk to you. 

When most of the people get hooked to metaverse, it will be difficult for them to get out of it. It will be a similar situation just as mobile phones are these days.

Conclusion

Metaverse is going to be the next big thing. So, start to invest in the metaverse right from. You can buy stock of companies investing in metaverse, buy digital land, buy NFT or even buy token or cryptocurrency of any metaverse project.
