 The popularity and adoption of decentralized virtual worlds has led to the evolution of an entirely new asset class: digital real estate investment 

People are spending increasingly more time in virtual worlds, or metaverses, for both leisure and work.


At the intersection of emerging technology like virtual reality and blockchain, developers, investors and hobbyists alike are creating a vibrant digital real estate market.



Republic Realm invests
in digital real estate in virtual worlds.

What is a metaverse? 

An alternate digital reality where people socialize, work, play, and transact. Metaverses built on the blockchain are self-contained virtual cities and economies that simulate real-world interactions.

What others are saying about Republic Realm and digital real estate

Frame 7.jpg

A diversified digital real estate vehicle, investing in virtual worlds through NFTs.

Republic Realm intends to focus on the acquisition, management, development, and sale of virtual land across existing metaverses including Decentraland, the first and most established multiplayer role-playing metaverse built on the Ethereum blockchain, and The Sandbox, a content-rich, community-driven gaming platform that allows individuals to create, publish, and monetize a variety of unique experiences on a decentralized platform. Republic Realm will also invest across other metaverses, while allocating capital to new projects and opportunities as they emerge.

Investment in digital real estate occurs through the purchase and exchange of non-fungible tokens (or NFTs), a special type of cryptographic token which represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are thus not mutually interchangeable. This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, and many network or utility tokens that are fungible in nature. Each NFT is distinct or unique, it is indivisible and it is not interchangeable.

We seek to maximize value in digital real estate

We leverage a multi-variable data collection methodology to assess relative value in the metaverse. Our goal is to partner with experienced developers and animators to build assets that promote community engagement.
