dCity Investments - weekly update

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 been busy to prepare for the 3rd edition to come out. As Gerber has now shared the changes, I have been thinking a lot about the best way to prepare myself. One of the most interesting new things is the ‘combined buildings’ where you need a lot of different cards to combine into one very powerful card.

Last week I have been able to pick up the final 1st and 2nd edition cards, to be able to get the Central Bank combined card after the launch of the 3rd edition. Obviously I will then still have to get the 3rd edition cards that are needed for that, but at least I won’t have to worry about the 1st and 2nd edition cards at that time.

I will likely only get the Central Bank combined card, since the needed cards for these combined buildings are pretty expensive. But we will have to see how things turn out at the start of the 3rd edition.



For this dcity I have continued buying Farms, as I feel it is still not big enough to go for the fancy 3rd edition stuff. For now I think that buying Farms is one of the best ways to grow the income for this dcity.

The crisis events that are coming with the 3rd edition will lower the income, but the crisis prevention cards will likely be too expensive to use for small dcities.

The SIM price should go up though and that should cause taxes to go down significantly as most tax is now related to the low SIM price.

I am planning to make an post of all the combined buildings and possibly another one about the coming crisis events and their impact for your dcity. Finally the update to crime is a pretty significant change that I’ll write a post about as well.

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.


Question, what is the effect/purpose of the criminal on the game?

Currently, it is only annoying. But in the 3rd edition you can get a prison and the more criminals you put in the prison, the more beneficial that building is for your dcity.
