dCity Investments - weekly update

in #dcity4 months ago

My weekly update about the strategic choices I made for my two dcities

I’ve been writing about several aspects of dcity so far, but I would like to add to that a weekly update about changes that I have made. Tutorials are great for understanding a certain aspect of the game, but along side these it is great to also be able to get insights on day-to-day strategic choices from players that are a bit further ahead in the game. That is what I will try to provide you with in these weekly updates.

Currently I have two dcities. One on my main account @elbrava, which you can find here. My aim for this city is to simply grow as fast as possible and enter the top200 of dcities. This will likely require me to invest more money to make that happen.

My other dcity is for my @invest4free account, which you can find here. This second account I set up specifically to show that through being active on Hive, you can become an investor for free. You will actually be able to build an investment portfolio that will generate passive income for you through being active on hive.

This weeks developments are:


For this dcity I have decided to keep a minimum of 8000 SIM, in order that my 30-day average SIM holdings will get above 8000 SIM. As this is required to start receiving Hive rewards for this and take part in the new lobby feature of dcity, which you can find under the government tab.

I also continued to buy Research Center’s and Farm’s. Basically I buy Farms as long as they are cheaper than 1000 SIM. Research Center’s have been the backup choice and this week I was able to pick two of them up for only 415 SIM, which is rediculously cheap. The current lowest price is 588 SIM, so that is a significant difference, even though 588 SIM is still a very good deal.



For this dcity I continue buying Farms whenever they are cheap and if they aren’t because a lot of people have bought all Farm’s up to 1100 SIM,then I simply wait a day or two until eventually the price goes back down to 950-1000 SIM.

I also sell all Homeless and Immigrants cards I get, as I rather buy Luxury homes to get more Population. Homeless and Immigrants cards give negative Popularity and Luxury homes give SIM income, so in terms of profit growth it makes sense to do it this way.

That’s it for this week.

If you have any questions about your dcity about how to improve it, how to grow it more quickly or any other question. Please do ask in the comments. I try to always give a response.

Thanks for reading, do follow me for more dcity and investment content and see you next time!

If you would like to start investing in dcity, because it is fun and very profitable. Or you want to get more hive to increase your investment. Then why not start a Risingstar account?

Risingstar is completely free and once you start leveling up it starts to take less time with bigger rewards. As soon as you hit level 20 you can start to withdraw your Starbits and convert them to SIM that you could invest in dcity. The combination of these two games is a really solid way to generate funds that you can use to invest in other things.

It is a very fun game, with a lively market for the NFT cards that you get while playing. So along with earning Starbits, you will also get cards that you can sell for any Hive-engine token you like.

Check the game out here, I am sure that you won’t regret it.

I just use another account for that. It makes easier to not accidentally overspend your funds.

That is a good idea! Thanks for that.

I might try a couple tips I picked up here in my city

That would be great. If you have any questions, do let me know.

Ye farms are expensive!
What is your second card to go for after the farm?

!tan :D

Hotels, those are usually more expensive than farms and have less population on the card itself.

After that the restaurant is pretty good and ad agencies, although the latter gets sold out pretty quickly usually.

I have looked at the ad agency, but they are quite expensive aswell xD

I just bought 4 farms today for 940 sim. I am happy with that

That’s a great investment. With 30% tax, they produce 7 sim per day. That is 2555 sim per year. Pretty good roi if you ask me :)

You have way more details than I do haha xD

I like calculations for profit :)

It is mind boggling to me that my main dcity is earning roughly 10 hive per day now and that this is more than a dollar a day as passive income. By the end of next year it should be 3-4 dollars at least of the hive price stays the same.

Damn! Thats amazing :D

It is people who maximize who can earn the most :D

Great Job! I'm right on your heels Coming in at 357 places. I'm close to what you're doing except I'm buying weed farms for the token mining. Also learned about the 8000 sim. I've been spending mine each day to make the city grow. Keep playing, we need people to invest. Makes all our returns higher. Merry Christmas!

Oh that’s great, you get some hive rewards for that position. A nice little bonus.

Now that the weedcash token has increased a lot in price it is a valid strategy for income.

I want to max out education, because I believe it will still be very important when the 3rd edition comes out.

not just that education will increase popularity bonus and the increase in population per day keeps you from having to purchase workers. which means you can take your earnings and buy businesses to increase your Sim income. Ill keep checking in on you. Soon I will be starting my articles and content. Id appreciates you doing the same. Do you play any of the Other Hive games?

That’s indeed why I love building my popularity rating.

I look forward to reading your articles. Feel free to tag me in a comment or so.

I also play risingstar with this account and splinterlands with my other account @elbrava.

hey if you interested. I have an L1 Trenton Lundy I want to sell. It's one of the top Legendaries. Adds 12k fans and 10k fans.

Wow, that’s an awesome card. But probably a bit expensive for me. How much would you like to get for it?

probably 300 hive, thats about legendary price. actually it should be about 600 in my opinion. But I'm probably gonna keep it now. i got cards up on the market. What cards you looking for. Ill let my doubles go for bottom dollar. You got twitter? hit me up! DM @cdilas3081

Ah a bit too much for me then. Better keep it yourself indeed.

I’m good for the moment. Just got enough fans to progress into the second area.

Also buddy. Would it be ideal for me to sell some buildings to others for more income?

I would personally sell the workers and get basic homes or luxury homes instead. Basic homes are super cheap and luxury homes give 2 sim income.

Also hard workers are overpriced on the market, so you can make nice profit on them.

I would also swap the circus and the zoo for a farm or hotel.

If your crime rate is low enough you can keep the shopping centers, but if you get robbed regularly, then it might be better to sell them.

I see you have AI technology, so if I were you I would also try to buy a factory every once in a while. Otherwise you’re wasting the technology.

In the end you can do a bit of everything and it will be still profitable, but you can also specialize. The choice is yours :)

What is a good price for the Factory? 3200 since expensive

3200 is expensive indeed. For that price you better buy 1st edition random cards if you only look at the sim income side.

However, for you the factory has a really good worker vs. income ratio.

It would be nice if you could get it for less than 3000 sim, but I guess that won’t be so easy.

Still, with 30% tax it produces 16,1 sim per day (that is with basic automation technology included). That means in the first year it will produce around 5876 sim for you.

The most profitable would be to sell the factory you have and the technology as well and buy farms instead, but I fully understand if you like to get more factories. Because it is fun to have something others don’t have. And it will still be very profitable.

Maximizing growth can be very boring ;)

I think it would be cool to have a "real" city with Income and different things :p
Not like the top ones who only have Pop and no income, but earns hive. Doesn't look at fun to me xD

I will keep an eye on a factory and farms I think :D
Thanks a lot!
