The Metaverse is becoming a reality faster than ever before, and soon enough it will be a place where we can all work and make money! Billions of dollars of investment is pouring into various Metaverse projects, and almost every company is trying to come up with their own Metaverse. There will be many potential jobs in the Metaverse, and in this article we will look at some of the most interesting ones.
Work in real estate
Real estate is one of the most obvious ways to make money in the Metaverse. If you take Decentraland, one of the most popular Metaverse platforms right now, as an example, you will understand exactly why.
Decentraland is a whole world with a limited amount of land that people can buy in the form of NFTs. In these areas, users can build almost anything they want. Whether it's a house, a park, a concert venue, a billboard, or whatever you can think of. Now every single NFT has value and can be transferred to other people. As more and more people buy lots in Decentraland, the higher the price of each individual lot will be due to the limited number of lots.
On top of that, all the "cooler" lots with actual development on them will cost a lot more than just the empty lots. This paved the way for a real estate industry that operates much like it does in the real world. Many people can make a lot of money just by buying and selling real estate in the Metaverse. Besides, there might even be agents in this world in real estate, opening employment opportunities for so many people.
Recently, a piece of land was sold for $2.4 million, which is almost as expensive as it is in real life. So, the sooner you join this area, the more you can earn money and make a career. For example, you can become a real estate agent, open your own agency in the metaverse, and buy and sell land and real estate just like in real life.
Jobs in the fashion industry
The fashion industry in the Metaverse will also be huge. Think about it, everyone in the Metaverse will have their own avatar to represent them. This avatar will be wearing clothes and accessories. There will be many different brands that you can potentially buy clothes from. There are already certain brands in the Metaverse such as Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. These brands have opened their own Metaverse virtual stores where people can go and buy virtual goods.
You are probably wondering why people spend money on virtual items that are purely cosmetic? Well, it's not something completely new. Just take a look at any free game like Fortnite or Apex Legends. In both of these games, you have the option to buy cosmetic items such as skins. They don't make any changes to the gameplay and you actually have to pay real money for it.
The metaverse will be similar, but you will even be able to sell these items yourself. Even on Snapchat, you can customize your avatar with designs from famous fashion brands like Ralph. Metaverse will have fashion designers and event planners. retail workers, stylists and many other professions that are directly related to the fashion industry. The global fashion industry is already worth trillions of dollars, and launching it in the Metaverse is just something that is bound to become more popular.
Influencers and celebrities
Another feature of the Metaverse avatars is that some of them will be more popular than others. This will most likely eventually lead to the creation of celebrities and influencers of the Metaverse. Fans following fictional or virtual characters are nothing new, and it's only a matter of time before the same happens in the Metaverse. It is likely that virtual reality influencers will also be directly involved with the fashion industry. Then they will always be "trendsetters" wearing all the latest trends and influencing fashion across platforms. Of course, just like in the real world, these influencers will also be able to monetize their fame. They will be able to make deals with brands, participate in advertising and paid events, and much more. It's hard to predict what will actually happen to the Metaverse's influencers, but it's almost certain that they'll become someone special.
Another feature of the Metaverse is that there will be many events in it. As mentioned, some Metaverse influencers will hold events to meet their fans, just like real life influencers do. There will be virtual performances, exhibitions and more. Imagine the Dubai Expo being held in the Metaverse! Something similar will be possible very soon. In fact, some celebrities, such as Snoop Dogg, have already held virtual concerts in the Metaverse. All attendees had to pay real money to attend this concert, and you know what? They sold out very quickly. And all were paid with real money.
Metaverse event planners will also be required. Just like in the real world, every event that takes place there will require organizers and event managers. Eventually, there will even come a time when such companies will announce their resettlement in the Metaverse. And all the jobs that are usually created by these events will also be moved to virtuality.
Architecture and design
This is another "industry" that will be directly related to the ownership of assets in the Metaverse. If you're going to build a building or something on a piece of land that you actually own, you can't just do it all alone in the real world. You will need the help of architects and designers. These jobs will play an extremely important role in making the Metaverse really look good. There is no doubt that many companies would be willing to pay more to architects and designers to make their buildings look better than anyone else's. There are even more jobs, such as interior designers, that will be needed in the Metaverse as it matures. It is unlikely that there will be many of these jobs, but those of us who can capture the market will remain in it for life.
What makes the Internet more profitable than anything else in the world? Advertising. You know Google as the search engine and owner of Gmail and YouTube. However, Google is primarily an advertising company. That is why it is valued at nearly a trillion dollars. The Metaverse is pretty much set up for advertising. It will have tasks not only for creating advertising, but also for managing it and much more. Eventually, there will be entire companies in the Metaverse whose sole purpose is to create advertising and make money. Such companies will bring many jobs with them, just like Google employs thousands of people around the world. Again, this cannot be predicted for sure, but most likely it will.
Most likely, there will be many other professions in the Metaverse, in addition to those that we have mentioned in this article. For example, there are likely to be many jobs related to technology, finance, aviation, tourism, and other types of jobs. Along with the basic jobs we do every day in the real world. Eventually, the Metaverse will become a reality sooner or later. We don't know what new jobs it will create, but it will be interesting to see how it becomes a reality.
