As people are spending increasingly more time in virtual worlds (also known as the metaverse), Janine Yorio, managing director of Republic Realm, joins Real Vision’s Haley Draznin to discuss an entirely new asset class that has evolved: digital real estate investment. The fund focuses on the acquisition, management, development, and sale of virtual land, known as parcels, across metaverses including Decentraland, The Sandbox, Axie Infinity, CryptoVoxels, among others. Filmed on April 21, 2021.

Key Learnings: Digital real estate has the potential to deliver long-term outsized returns due to the rise of cryptocurrencies and the rapidly growing digital currency asset class. It is evolving into a viable store of wealth like real-world real estate, real-world art, and even website domain names due to its scarcity value, ability to monetize from high “foot traffic” and transferability.
