Earth2 as Investment

Is Earth an investment, crowdsourcing or a fraud?

We are not financial advisors and information on this website is not a financial advice. The information about Earth2 Project is for educational purposes.

Does all the tiles cost money?

In Phase I, all you can do is to buy the tiles. All the tiles cost money and you can either buy new tiles from the Earth2 or buy tiles from other players on the marketplace. Some people consider this an investment, but we think about it as crowdfunding a project which might or might not be successful.

Why should I buy the tiles?

You definitelly shouldn't buy anything you don't understand well. Before you consider buying the tiles, read through the earth2.io page, mainly about, benefits, the team, terms and conditions. Read through this guide, join the discord group and see the news site (see below).

Various people have bought Earth2 tiles hoping for a benefit in the future, when the project is successful. Be careful, because this success cannot be guaranteed. We suggest to spend only as much as you can afford to lose.

Did some people earn money investing in Earth2?

Yes. There were many users who bought properties early and picked famous locations. Later they were able to resell these with a big profit. Other users investigate properties appearing on the marketplace and resell them with profit. Be careful, at this stage, when you buy a property, you won't be able to get the money back unless someone else buys that from you. Many properties even with a huge discount compared to the new tiles price didn't find the buyer.

The platform motivates users to buy sooner because the prices of the new tiles are constantly increasing. Some critics claim that because of this mechanism the players who came sooner only benefit when the new players pay the higher price.

Is Earth2 a Ponzi scheme?

While some courageous could profit from the game already, the Earth2 project is first and foremost a start-up. People buy tiles because they believe that one day the platform will be popular. It's no different from more than a dozen of its competitiors, emerging cryptocurrencies or future technologies stocks.
