The CryptoCast with Jason Hartman

Sep 10, 2022

Is virtual real estate a real money making opportunity or are you better off going to Vegas to gamble? Jason Hartman welcomes Steve Hoffman back to the show today to hear about the latest developments regarding real estate, digital assets and speculation in the metaverse.

As we see a lot of big brands such as Gucci jumping into the virtual space to sell digital assets, a lot of people are wondering, where do you buy land in the metaverse? Are these good investments? How is their worth actually determined? How are people actually earning money? Can you make money speculating on virtual land?

Digital assets here to stay or just a passing fad? And what about cryptocurrencies? The amount of hype compared to the amount of utility that cryptocurrencies have delivered is completely disproportionate. People don't want to buy goods with cryptocurrency just yet, so what are they actually using crypto for?

Join Steve and Jason as they discuss future virtual worlds, NFTs, crypto and much more.
