The 3 Ways To Profit on VR

If you already have this in your mind, congratulations. You are ahead of the curves (get it?!). The real question is: how can you profit on this promising “subsector?”

As we covered in our article “How to Invest in Virtual Reality,” there are three basic ways to profit on VR.

  • Invest in public companies and funds

  • Invest in private companies and startups

  • Invest in your own VR company

If you go with option 1 or option 2, we have some good news for you: There are only so many companies chasing after the VR market. With public companies, in particular, you could score dividends and minimize risk—many of these companies drive profits from other product lines. The following companies are some of your best bets.

Facebook — Social & Not So Social Media

Not too long ago, Facebook acquired Oculus for the hefty price of 2 billion dollars. Since then they have improved the flagship product, the Oculus Rift. And they have released the Oculus Go. Not surprisingly, porn makes up a very high percentage of the search traffic related to these devices.

For example, the keyword “oculus go porn” is the 4th highest keyword related to the Oculus Go. According to Google Search data. Monthly search volume for “oculus go games” sits at 4,400 and volume for “oculus go porn” sits at 1,900.

Plus, we’ve had readers confirm that porn is arguably the Go’s best function.

In other words, Facebook's low-end headset has a strong and growing presence in the world of porn. And it’s no different for the Rift. And it will be the same with Facebook’s upcoming standalone release, the Oculus Quest.

All the Oculus headsets are capable of streaming porn. And with recent price slashing, we expect Facebook to beat HTC. They have WAY more money to throw at product development and marketing. They can afford to sell the devices at cost, capture industry market share, and monetize the devices in other ways.

While Zuckerberg aims to monetize the social component of VR, it’s possible that a lot of the revenue from this “next computing platform” will come from porn. Which is, in most cases, not particularly social.

Either way, the tech giant stands to gain a lot from shear consumer reach and a stockpile of user data.

Sony — Gamer’s Porn System (GPS)

What’s the difference between the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and the Sony PlayStation VR experience? Sony has sold over 3 million headsets. And all of them have the ability to easily stream adult virtual reality content. Using the PS4 browser, you can easily navigate to any pornographic website and transition into the VR experience.

In terms of hardware sales, Sony is a clear leader in the realm of consumer VR. Back that up with the fact that their market cap is 1/7th of Facebook’s and it looks like they might have a little room to grow.

They make phones, computers, televisions, video games, and so much more. But even with the diversification in hardware, Sony’s gaming division accounted for roughly 78% of its total profits in 2016. They are looking to grow those gaming profits even more, and it’s why they’ve been spending like crazy to get VR projects out the door.

Investors who think that gaming will drive VR sales would do well to pay attention to this Japanese behemoth. After all, if you can get a flawless experience in porn AND games in one device, that’s the device you would buy, right?

Tencent — Got An Engine? Got Game.

If you’re a gamer, you are probably familiar with Epic Games. Creators of Unreal Tournament and Gears of War. And most recently, the cross-platform sensation, Fortnite. Since Fornite’s release, Epic has snagged over $1 billion in revenue from the title.

What you may not know is that the Chinese holding company, Tencent, purchased a 40 percent stake in Epic while Fortnite was in development. At a valuation of about $825M.

You might be asking “what does this have to do with VR Porn?” Here’s why it does…

If you believe that pornographic media will be “game-centric,” it’s worth paying attention to the game engines that companies will use to build these naughty interactive experiences.

The two major VR game platforms right now are Unity and the Unreal Engine. As you might have guessed, Epic Games created the Unreal Engine. And they stand to profit from licensing the engine to game creators.

By investing in Tencent, you could get indirect exposure to one of the only VR gaming engines of the future.

Nvidia — Rendering “Hi-Fidelity Experiences”

Rendering virtual reality requires A LOT of processing power. Especially when you are talking about 3D porn games.

Luckily, we have companies like Nvidia, who released the world’s first GPU in 1999. And went on to become the world’s leader in GPU production. GPUs provide 84% of the company’s revenue, and it is no surprise. They know what they are doing in that space.

Still, Nvidia is unique among semiconductor companies because it has exposure to multiple growing end-markets. Even setting aside the promise that VR has for Nvidia, the company is well positioned to capitalize on other technological breakthroughs like Artifical Intelligence. A.I. fueled its data center business, which grew 133% in one year.

Nvidia has managed to carve out an impressive moat in the world of computer processing and we see them maintaining that position in the world of virtual reality and virtual reality porn. In one of their latest earnings announcements, revenue for the year was up 41% to reach a record $9.71 billion.

The Short and Skinny

Who will rule the next computing platform? Who will rule the future of Adult VR? It’s hard to say. But we think the 4 companies in this article have a really good shot at profiting on humanity’s primitive desires. And if you consider carefully and invest properly, you could too. Let us help you take the next step to VR profits.
