Consequently, this factor is intensively flourishing the growth of the market for metaverse real estate across the globe.

In addition, the enormous inclination towards NFTs in the metaverse real estate environment is another aspect that is augmenting the evolution of the market.

Below are some important metaverse real states which have been in trend. 

1. Gamming Platforms 

Investors are pouring millions of dollars into the ground. But these green fields and rolling hills only exist in video games as digital real estate attract both investors and dedicated gamers. The digital real estate market has been boosted by the recent epidemic of fuels in electronic games and investor enthusiasm around cryptocurrencies. Many see NFT-enabled games as a potential boon for the multi-billion-dollar videogame industry. In games like Fortnite, Minecraft, and World of Warcraft, gamers have spent years on gear — such as weapons, armor, or tools to strengthen their character. NFT-enabled games now allow players to trade game assets for cryptocurrency, selling them for a coin that can be transformed into dollars when they score something good or go on a new adventure. In some games, players can purchase digital deeds for real estate in the form of NFT, which proves the authenticity of a specific plot in a certain game. More players joining the game will appreciate real estate, and rare land is sold to other players who need plots for specific tasks and missions. Players can then lease their land to other gamers, charge others to use it, or sell it — either in a game or on a third-party exchange like OpenSea. Transactions are usually based on the game's unique cryptocurrency, which can be converted into Ethereum and then into US dollars.  

However, there has been a lot of movement in the digital land in the last few years. Digital land purchases have generated millions of dollars. For example, in March 2021, a group of people paid around USD 1.6 million for the Citadel of the Stars, a large state in the unpublished fantasy role-playing game Mirandus, said Eric Shearer, co-founder of Zynga and now chief executive of Mirandus creator Gala Games. That purchase paid 1.5 million for nine adjacent plots in the virtual pet universe Axie Infinity. Also, in March 2021, Virtual World the Sandbox sold land worth about USD 2.8 million in a well-received pair of sales, and the company now owns about USD 37 million worth of its digital properties. In this virtual world, various games are hosted in each plot and players can change the game they are playing while exploring the world. To boot, gamers have collectively invested billions of dollars in videogame loot, but NFT-enabled games are different because players own the assets in their games. Numerous analysts said the long-term viability of NFT-enabled digital games requires to attract mainstream users who are not well versed in cryptocurrencies or NFTs. For example, on March 17, 2022, SBC (HSBA.L) is buying a plot of virtual real estate for an undisclosed amount in an online gaming space called The Sandbox, the bank's first major entry into Metaverse as it cuts its UK branch network. 

2. Virtual Events  

In the last few years, metaverse real estate has been extensively adopted for masses of virtual events. Several great singers are investing heavily while some are performing live metaverse concert on this platform. The last few years have seen the participation of some of Nanak's biggest singers in this, Justin Bieber performed at the Live Metaverse Concert in November 2021. And on March 27, 2022, Daler Mehndi has bought virtual real estate on the Indian Metaverse platform PartyNite. He has called the property Balle Balle Land. Singapore's indie band Bandwagon has performed in virtual reality for the first time this March 2022 as part of the Pixel Party. There are several examples that are rising the demand for metaverse real estate over the years. This is also the reason why metaverse real estate is currently being adapted for the party, new show concerts as well as many events. Soaring awareness of virtual real estate is among millions of consumers and market players are gaining huge potential in the market and making it one of the most trending elements in the market. 

3. Paradigm Shift of Peoples, Firms, Investors Towards Digital Land is Creating Huge Share in the Market 

While most people cannot afford to buy a home in the real world, manifold enterprises hugely contributing to buy fake land. CNBC reported that digital plot prices have soared by 500% since Facebook took a step towards becoming a meta. One company reportedly spent more than USD 2.5 million on land in Descentraland, complete with crypto-based metaverse with its own currency where each piece of content in the game is completely autonomous, owned by players. Another firm spent roughly USD 4.3 million to buy land in Atari's The Sandbox Metavers. And in November 2021, Sandbox, a virtual meta world allowed users to create and play games. Sebastian Borget, co-founder and COO of Sandbox told Al Arabiya English that about 16,000 people have bought virtual land plots in the new blockchain-linked video game. However, in the current zeitgeist, metaverse refers to this niche virtual world that, in most cases, looks much worse than average videogame. Celebrity looks and shows are becoming quite common, a bit like Fortnite concerts, and some like Snoop Dogg and Paris Hilton have assets in this world. While the house next to Snoop's planned mansion is going for 4.3 million, naturally putting celebrities on board is helping to raise the price. Shifting towards digital land has become new normal which is achieving highest revenue in the market.  

All aforementioned aspects are drastically trending among thousands of market players. And these are responsible to enhance the overall sale of the metaverse real estate market worldwide.
