I slipped on the glasses and pulses of turquoise rippled across the walls, floors, and furniture. The glasses were mapping out my “real” world and preparing to merge it with the metaverse.
A moment later, the color show ended, and the world looked as plain as it had before.
“Are these still on?” I was about to rag on my buddy for his defective prototype… but then two clownfish came swimming into the room.
I cupped one in my hands while the other circled me. I soon abandoned my fish friends in the kitchen only to be greeted by a six-foot-tall coral reef in the living room.
Parrotfish and angelfish mulled about – just as lifelike as I’d seen swimming on real reefs before.
My house had become a virtual aquarium… and it didn’t take a bulky virtual-reality (VR) headset or hardware setup to pull it off.
But as awe-inspiring as the experience was, it paled in comparison to the conversation we had after.
My friend who built this digital reef ecosystem is an engineer for a mixed-reality (MR) company. (He’s asked me to keep his name and the company confidential.)
Today, I’m going to share his vision for the future… and how we can profit from this monumental technology.
From VR to MR and Beyond
Over the last few years, consumer-focused VR setups have become increasingly popular and affordable… the Facebook-owned Oculus and the HTC VIVE being just a few examples.
But the public has only seen glimpses of what MR glasses and technology are capable of…
Most of today’s MR glasses are built for enterprise use like technical training, surgery, or software development. And we haven’t seen a true consumer-focused MR headset launch since the Google Glass in 2013.
Back then, the technology wasn’t developed enough. Users couldn’t do much with the glasses… and many reported eye pain.
Nearly a decade later, MR tech has come a long way. That’s why my buddy had to give me an in-person demonstration. He knows I’m skeptical. And he knew I’d dismiss his claims as hyperbole unless I saw it firsthand.
But I’m not writing to you today just to share my experience with digital clownfish. I also want to prepare you for the next revolutionary tech trend: The metaverse…
Transporting to the Metaverse
In short, the metaverse encompasses all types of virtual worlds many of us already use… things like video games… eSports… social media… digital collectibles… cryptocurrencies… blockchain… and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Using MR, you’ll be able to transport yourself to the metaverse and do things like hang digital paintings throughout your home… watch TV where there isn’t one… and have a virtual chat with a distant friend as if they were there with you.
But it doesn’t end there. Remember those turquoise lights mapping my real world into the metaverse?
Advertisers can use things like sidewalks, building walls – and even the sky – as virtual billboards for ads targeted specifically to you.
It’ll be similar to the scene from the sci-fi movie Minority Report when Tom Cruise’s character walks through a shopping mall.
A sensor scans his eyes and then billboards display virtual ads tailored to his personal tastes.
Think about it…
Instead of being bombarded with annoying ads for products you don’t want… the metaverse will seamlessly integrate personalized ads into your own virtual world… and you will control the interaction.
So it’s a win-win for advertisers and consumers. And that’s why the metaverse will be such a disruptive trend…
You Don’t Have to Participate in the Metaverse to Profit From It
At PBRG, we believe the metaverse will be the next multitrillion-dollar tech trend.
Developers will build new ways to play, communicate, and experience the world… And the companies that end up controlling the metaverse will make early investors a fortune.
That’s why the biggest companies in the world are all rushing to advance MR technology. Tech giants like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Alphabet, and Facebook are all deeply invested in developing MR.
In fact, according to recent reports, Facebook is expected to announce a name change and rebrand itself as a metaverse company as early as this week.
Facebook is the 5th-largest U.S. company by market cap, so this is a very huge deal. But Wall Street and Main Street haven’t caught on to this trend – yet.
That’s where our opportunity comes in…
As Daily editor Teeka Tiwari says, to make life-changing gains in the market, you need to invest in a massive trend early… and find the right company to play the trend.
I want you to make so much money investing in the metaverse that you can afford to disconnect from it forever… in a real beachside home or mountain top cabin.
If you’re looking for broad exposure to this trend, consider the Roundhill Ball Metaverse ETF (META).
This fund holds a basket of companies that are building the metaverse. That includes chipmakers like Nvidia, software companies like Autodesk, and MR glass makers like Facebook and Microsoft.
Look, I understand if you’re not interested in the metaverse or virtual experiences…
To some people, it may sound crazy. But remember, there are millions of people who believe social media and cryptocurrencies are “crazy” technologies, too.
They also missed out on the “crazy” fortunes early investors made from these technologies.
Here’s the thing…
You don’t have to participate in the metaverse to profit from this disruptive technology…
You just need to position yourself early in this trend… and ride it to life-changing gains.

P.S. Earlier this month, Teeka put together his first set of recommendations to play the metaverse trend, including a crypto project connecting the real world to the metaverse.

And if you’re not a PBL subscriber, there’s still time to learn which cryptocurrency Teeka believes will be the next trillion-dollar coin… And how it’ll be the backbone of the entire metaverse movement.
