Investing in Metaverso: funds and other ways to invest.
Being a market for the year 2024 could reach US $800 billion according to Bloomberg, it is no surprise that Microsoft bought for about $70 billion US dollars the company Activision Blizzard, one of the most important video game companies in the world, whose creations include Call of Duty, Overwatch, Warcraft and even the favorite of mobile users of any age, Candy crush; being this the largest acquisition in the online gaming industry.
The metaverse will set the course for cryptocurrencies, as in the ecosystem of virtual worlds, a common factor for participating companies is that cryptocurrencies are present in all transactions.
The metaverse: beyond video games.
But, although it is a very important part of its essence and development, the metaverse is not limited to video games. In 2021, Facebook assured that one of its ultimate goals is that people will be able to perform a good part of their VR (real life) tasks in the metaverse: from interacting as we do today in social networks to working, all with augmented virtual reality glasses and an avatar that represents us everywhere online.
How will this affect social relationships and collective psychology? We don’t know (some people talk a lot about how we are getting closer and closer to the Black Mirror universe), but what we do know is that investing in the Metaverse is an important trend in 2022 -and we believe it will continue to be for several years- so we at BBVA New Gen leave you with some tips to consider including it in your investment strategy.
How to invest in the Metaverse?
One way to invest in the metaverse could be to directly buy shares of a company dedicated to it in the stock market, there are hundreds and you can consult both the Wall Street Journal and BBVA’s Asset Management for advice. As we have already mentioned before, stocks have the advantage that as the company’s income and capitalization increase, your investment will multiply, but they have the disadvantage that if you only depend on one company and it does not do so well, the value of your investment may depreciate, so the best thing to do would be to diversify your investment.
Investment funds offer you the possibility of investing in several projects at the same time. At BBVA New Gen we have investment funds that can be adapted to your objectives, you only need to contact us to learn more about it. Here you have the advantages of 1) a diversified investment and 2) an advisor that will monitor your investment.
Of course, being a virtual creation, investing in Metaverse could not be reduced to traditional forms of investment. Most of the companies dedicated to the metaverse have their own tokens or cryptocurrencies, but remember! Cryptocurrencies are one of the most volatile investment instruments. That’s why we put at your disposal our BBVA New Gen advisors, so you can decide, from the hands of experts, if this is the best investment strategy for you.
