"Genesis City is a plot of virtual land, roughly the size of Washington,
D.C., that investors can buy slices of for obscene amounts of money. Even a
simple 1,100 square foot plot can go for as much as $200,000, according to

This bizarre bubble market was born from the promise of a VR future. Ray
Kurzweil has predicted that, in a matter of years, physical workplaces will
be a thing of the past
replaced by virtual ones. By 2020, virtual reality and augmented reality
are predicted to rake in an estimated $162 billion
 in revenue. So, naturally, if there’s real estate to be had (even if it’s
virtual), people will pop up to buy and sell it."
