Man buys land in the Metaverse for AED 66,116

A Texas man has given away his entire life savings to buy virtual land on an online virtual reality game.

The Texas native, Justin Reed, whose online alias is David Joker, spent US$18,000 (AED66,116) for the Khorum Coast, a piece of property in the virtual land Entropia Universe.

“I know it sounds like a lot, and it’s a crazy thing to tell someone that, you know, I’m a virtual landowner, and I put my life savings into it. But I believe in Entropia,” said the new virtual property owner.

Reed has been playing Entropia Universe for almost 20 years and says the game has helped him pay his college tuition.

“I get revenue based on everything that a player finds out there. If they go out on doing their mining, I get a 3 per cent tax revenue on that. And that’s how I get my income,” he explained.

He also revealed that he pays $60 (AUD $88 or £50) to keep animals stocked on his land but doesn’t pay taxes.
