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:


Finally there is a date for the introduction of the 3rd edition of dcity! On the 30th of April the new cards, technologies and game mechanics will become available.

This means that until then I will keep stacking my SIM income, in order to be able to buy a lot of new cards on launch day.

A small benefit of that is that my SIM power is very high, so I am receiving a bit of Hive dividends for my SIM holdings.

Also, I got my first tier 5 technology! Advanced training. This technology makes that I no longer train 1 Homeless or Immigrants card per day, but 3! As a result you will see a lot more citizen’s in both my dcities :)

I also will soon have to start buying Homeless and Immigrants cards on the market, because I train more than I get for free.



For this dcity I was buying Job centers to get some Homeless and Immigrants training done, but now that my other dcity trains 3 of them per day it is no longer interesting. So I have started buying Research Centers instead as mining technologies is still a very beneficial strategy.

After the 3rd edition has come out I will see if the price of Research Centers remains low enough to keep building that.

Next I will make a calculation again which cards are most beneficial to buy on the market. I expect prices of 2nd edition cards to go up, as most people will be buying 3rd edition cards. Especially in the first month after the 3rd edition goes live.

I will also keep an eye on the SIM price in the coming days, as I expect it to go up a lot. If the price reaches the soft-peg 0,005 Hive again, then I will likely take some profit from my SIM income.

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.


Like your @invest4free dCity, I am building by dCity without investing any fiat (I have converted a few other tokens in order to purchase couple of buildings). And like your city, I am focusing on Farms. I am curious, though, why you chose to go with Luxury Homes as opposed to Basic Homes? My initial thought was that I would need the additional workers for my farms (plus, I can generally get Basic Homes cheaper that Luxury Homes).

The thought with the luxury homes is that they generate more income.

I didn’t mind to buy more of them as they increased my income more.

To be honest, I don’t know if it is really the best strategy. With basic homes I would have had more farms now. I haven’t done the calculations ;)

Thanks for the feedback. I was wondering if there was something I was missing.

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.
