Our mission here at Crowdability is simple:
To help you get into potentially explosive startups at their earliest stages.
But occasionally, not only can we get you in at the ground floor of a company… but we can get you in at the ground floor of an entire sector!
And that’s what I want to share with you right now:
Three specific ways to get positioned early for what’s likely to become one of the most explosive sectors in the market.
This Sector is About to go “BOOM!”
What’s this sector I’m referring to?
From the largest enterprises in the world to top venture capitalists, everyone is betting big on this sector.
For instance, Facebook — which went so far as to change its name to “Meta” — invested $10 billion into metaverse-related projects in 2021. And that number is expected to grow dramatically this year, and in the years to come.
Microsoft recently dropped $69 billion to make its initial foray into this emerging market…
And venture capitalists invested $12 billion into metaverse-related startups last year.
That’s real dough. And these “insiders” aren’t risking billions of dollars on a hunch…
With that much money at stake, they must be convinced that the metaverse is the future.
But What is “The Metaverse,” Exactly?
Broadly speaking, the metaverse is the next phase of the Internet.
But this time around, instead of impacting us only when we’re in front of a screen…
The metaverse will impact us everywhere, constantly…
From how we shop… to how we meet up and socialize with friends… to how we experience the world when we’re walking down the street.
More specifically, the metaverse will combine the connectivity of the Internet with virtual reality and augmented reality to create a fully immersive and “always connected” experience.
For example, imagine taking a business meeting from your home…
Today, you might use a video chat service like Facetime or Zoom…
But by immersing yourself in the metaverse and using a pair of augmented reality goggles, you’d be able to see, hear, and interact with the other participants in a fully immersive world that looked like this:
Or, instead of calling your friends on the phone to catch up, imagine “meeting” them in a virtual world like Decentraland:
I know it may seem far-fetched…
But again, tens of billions of real dollars are being invested into this market because the most visionary entrepreneurs and investors of our day believe this is where the world is headed.
And as it turns out, regular people like you are already betting big on the metaverse…
The “Meta Economy”
For example, users are spending real money to buy up property in the metaverse.
The New York Times called it a “Virtual Land Boom.” And Business Insider reported that a single property recently sold for $4.3 million!
In fact, CNBC recently reported that users spent $500 million on virtual real estate in 2021 — and it’s expecting that number to double to $1 billion this year!
On top of that, folks are spending record levels of money on everything from NFTs (a form of digital collectibles) to games, just so they can fully participate in the metaverse. According to CNBC, in 2021, investors dropped over $17.6 billion on NFTs alone.
So, once again, not only are today’s biggest companies and investors betting that the metaverse is going to be huge…
But consumers are already voting with their wallets!
How to Play the Metaverse Boom
If you’re like me, and you’re convinced that something big is going on here, I’d like to share a few different ways to play this trend.
One way is to invest directly into the big companies putting real money into the Metaverse — companies like Meta (FB) or Microsoft (MSFT).
But given that Meta is already worth more than $500 billion, and Microsoft is worth more than $2 trillion, it’s difficult to see how either of those investments would produce big returns.
You could also try to profit by getting in on the ground floor of a metaverse-related startup.
For instance, there’s a tiny startup called Unlocked Reality that’s making moving around the metaverse as natural and fluid as walking down the street in the real world.
We’ve also discovered a way to invest in this sector through a metaverse “real estate fund.” This fund will invest in a diversified portfolio of metaverse real estate over time — it’s like a “metaverse REIT.” You can learn more about it here »
However, one of our favorite metaverse plays comes from our friend, Lou Basenese…
As you’ll see, Lou is actually betting against the general metaverse…
Instead, he’s betting on something he calls “The Appleverse ”…
And for the next few days, you have the chance to get in on this potentially explosive opportunity.
