It is Now Quite Difficult to talk about the Market Value for the Purchase of Land in Metaverse
When social media giant Facebook has changed its name to Meta, land investments in the metaverse world gained great momentum. The prices, which were low when the first land sales started, soon became competitive with the world. Baki Budakoglu, Chairman of Denge Degerleme, said: “it is actually difficult to talk about the Market Value as there is not a regulated market as well as a conscious buyer/seller group in Metaverse at the moment. While the private space tourism era has begun, we will see by the time that how right to buy a land with the expectation of bringing the life between the four walls of the Earth to Metaverse”.
Chairman of Denge Degerleme Baki Budakoglu, one of the veterans in the real estate sector, said: “It seems that at this early stage of the metaverse virtual universe, it would be more realistic to talk about the prices set by only sellers, rather than the perception of value. At this point, if the relationship between the investment decision and a value basis is to be established, this can only be expressed with Investment Value, albeit with some force“.
IT IS NOW QUITE DIFFICULT TO TALK ABOUT THE MARKET VALUE FOR THE PURCHASE OF LAND IN METAVERSE
Budakoglu said “it is actually difficult to talk about the Market Value as there is not a regulated market as well as a conscious buyer/seller group in Metaverse at the moment“ and added: “First of all, the issues such as how the item to be purchased as land will be used, what kind of benefits it will provide, etc. are not clear yet. For example, what kind of benefit can be gained by investing in land? You might think that it can be sold by constructing a house on it or you can keep it with a nice interior decoration. In that case, will the investment be to open a second home and bear the expenses? As the era of private space tourism has begun, will it attract as much attention as expected to bring life within the four walls of Earth to the Metaverse? Similarly, in the investments made in real estates located near certain centers or on the main street, is it to be hoped that synergy will be created by considering population density and ease of transportation, as in this world? There are many questions to be answered”.
THE TALENT OF THE UNIVERSE WHERE THE VIRTUAL LAND IS APPRAISED WILL BE DECISIVE
Stating that real properties come to the mind when talking about valuation, however, as Denge Degerleme, they offer valuation services in many fields such as companies, machinery, facilities, vehicles, insurance, and legal processes in addition to real properties, Baki Budakoğlu said “It is made on the basis of the situation, risk perception and expectations for those persons, institutions and enterprises for which a valuation is made. Thus, the investment value of the same property that will represent different real persons, institutions or enterprises as buyers may vary according to the differences in expectations and risk perceptions. It seems that the features and capabilities of the environment in which a virtual universe is designed, where the virtual land is located, will be among the determining factors in the formation and preservation of the value of the land and its positive or negative changes in the future”.
According to the determinations of Baki Budakoglu, Chairman of Denge Degerleme, he expressed the parameters that he predicted to determine its value as follows:
- Being located in a virtual universe that is included in the BlockChain,
- The fact that the infrastructure of the blockchain it is located is situated within a virtual universe that will enable it to communicate with other blockchains that are located in Metaverse in the future,
- Having an effective management organization in the virtual universe in which it is located, taking decisions quickly and implementing them, adapting to innovations,
- Providing opportunities for the promotion, purchase, and sale of goods and services horizontally between persons, institutions, or enterprises operating in the virtual universe,
- The fact that the virtual universe climate is fed by activities that will constantly attract attention,
- The virtual environment being involved has a sufficient security infrastructure against cyber security threats.
