The next economy is upon us.
The old economy was an economy of scarcity, in which the most valuable assets were land and natural resources. The new economy is one of abundance, in which the most valuable assets are data, knowledge, and relationships—and virtual worlds like Next Earth are leading the way to this new world.
If you’re reading this article, then you’ve probably already heard about how blockchain-based metaverses allow users to own their assets and earn income by selling virtual goods. What many people don’t realize is that there’s an entire NFT-based replica of Earth that you can buy into, too.
In this article, we’ll cover the top 5 locations to buy virtual land on Next Earth, straight from other users through the Next Earth NFT marketplace.
- North Las Vegas Airport Tower
Perhaps you can’t afford a massive historical landmark or a 5-star hotel. No problem! Next Earth has plenty of other options for you, including the North Las Vegas Airport Tower.
Airport towers play a crucial role in modern society. They help guide planes to their destinations, and they also help guide people to their flights. More technically, these are called Air Traffic Control Towers (ATCT) and they’re used to guide aircraft into airports and out of airports.
If you want to buy this spot, then you’ll need to buy some virtual land. The price for this spot is just 0.1 BNB.
- Great Wall at Shanhai Pass
If you’re interested in buying a spot that’s actually located on the Great Wall of China, then this is your lucky day. The Great Wall at Shanhai Pass is for sale, and it’s only 0.35 BNB.
The Great Wall of China is one of the most famous landmarks in the world, and it’s an essential part of Chinese culture. It was built to keep out invaders from Mongolia, and it also helped unite various parts of China under one rule. Today, the Great Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations. Although the Great Wall of China is no longer under threat from invaders, it’s still an important part of Chinese culture and identity.
- Statue of Unity
The Statue of Unity is the world’s tallest statue. As you can see, it’s visible from space. It’s also a popular tourist destination in India.
The Statue of Unity is located on the banks of the Narmada River, which flows through the Kevadiya colony. The statue was built to commemorate Vallabhbhai Patel, who served as the first Deputy Prime Minister of India and took part in the country’s independence movement.
Statues have long been used as symbols of power and authority. The Statue of Unity is no different—it’s an important symbol for the people of India, who see it as a source of national pride. The fact that this statue is visible from space makes it even more powerful, since it represents the country to people all over the world.
The price for this spot is just 0.5 BNB.
- USAF Base (Area 51)
Area 51 is a top-secret military base located in Nevada. It’s also the home of the world’s most famous alien conspiracy theory.
The United States government previously denied Area 51’s existence for decades, but it’s still very much a real place. The base is known for housing some of the country’s most secretive projects, including the development of stealth fighter jets and advanced spy technology. Many people believe that aliens are held prisoner at Area 51, but this hasn’t been confirmed by any credible sources.
Nonetheless, Area 51 has become an inextricable cultural phenomenon. It’s the subject of countless books, movies, TV shows, and video games. People all over the world are fascinated by this mysterious place. At the same time, virtual aliens and the metaverse are becoming more and more mainstream, which means that this is an opportunity that won’t be around forever.
The price for this spot is 2.9 BNB.
- Chernobyl New Safe Confinement
The Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred in 1986, and it’s considered to be the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. The disaster released large amounts of radiation into the atmosphere, which caused widespread contamination.
The New Safe Confinement was built to cover the destroyed reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. It was completed in 2019, and it’s one of the most advanced modern structures ever created. The price for this spot is 3 BNB.
Bonus: Early Phase Land Art
Space Invaders is a classic video game. In the 1980s, Space Invaders became one of the most popular arcade games in the world. In many ways, it still is today. The game is available in arcades all over the world and people play it for hours at a time.
If you want to buy some virtual space invaders, then this is your lucky day. Next Earth user Csirke has made his very own pixel art of Space Invaders available for sale in the NFT marketplace. The classic icon above, for instance, is selling for 0.2 BNB, or just under $100 as of writing.
