Metaverse is the next big industry employing creators and artists to make money and a career virtually. Although the metaverse is in its early stages, it has become the main income source for many.
Roblox is one of the leading metaverses giving creators an opportunity to unleash their creativity. It has opened infinite possibilities for them to earn without any third-party involvement.
Samuel Jordan is a 23-year-old creator and owner of a million-dollar fashion business on Roblox. He creates virtual clothes, accessories, and other fashion items and sells them online to earn money.
In 2013, he made $30,000 by creating items on Roblox, which motivated him to establish this as a serious career. By 2020, Jordan earned $600,000 and in 2021, he made over a million dollars.
Roblox is an open-world gaming platform having over 54M users every day. It has its own marketplace where players buy virtual items for ROBUCKs which can be converted to real currency.
Like Jordan, many other designers have joined the virtual worlds to earn money. Metaverse gives them the freedom to build whatever they want.
Other than Roblox, The Sandbox and Decentraland have also brought many creators into the metaverse. The Sandbox provides tools like VoxEdit and Maker Fund to empower artists and creators.
The Sandbox has its own token SAND and LAND; exchanged for real dollars. The platform’s upcoming Alpha S3 will give players an opportunity to have an immersive experience and build something.
Making money in the metaverse is an early concept and those who have joined in are earning millions of dollars.
