Where to Start?
Well, it is, especially if you are looking at it as a one-time purchase, which most trying to enter the platform do. But, Zed horses should not be viewed that way, at least not the ones you should be looking to buy. There’s a huge difference between what many call a “starter horse” ($250) compared to horses selling for five to ten times the price.
Until there’s another drop or breeding is re-activated, all of the cheaper horses have already shown their stripes (most of which aren’t good). Their chances of winning races are next to none, while the upside from breeding extremely is limited. Instead, there are plenty of gems in the $1200-$2000 range that have a much better chance of becoming more valuable.
Make a Plan
Unlike other NFT’s, be it from racing, breeding, or the crypto favorite HODLing, there’s a great chance you can actually inject value into your horse. Win a couple races, receive good odds at new distances, breed a few winning babies, or just wait for the game to grow, and your $2000 could easily double, triple, or grow into the… Billions (get it? that’s the Zed horse that sold for $125K)
There’s a reason all these $200 horses are on the market at the moment, most of which being sold by owners with stables full of horses. Those in the know understand the current value and more importantly, the potential future value.
Instead, buying an unraced horse, one with a low Z# (Z4, Z5, Z6, etc), or those with decent odds and close to 0% ROI is much more of an investment. When you buy Apple, Tesla, or Gamestop stock, you understand the risk of it dropping to a price below what you bought it for, but there’s never a fear of it crashing all the way to $0. That’s how a mid-level horse should be viewed.
If it struggles to get good odds and/or produces poor offspring, you’re left with one of the horses you were probably looking to buy in the first place. Instead, if you hit it big, you could instantly be sitting on something special that you’ll be able to sell, trade, or rake in the profits from prizes and stud fees.
Knowing is Half the Battle!
Like all great things in life, in Zed.run it takes money to make money. It’s just that here, unlike the stock market, getting college educated, or playing blackjack, the odds of success truly do increase the more you invest off the top. Thus decreasing your investment risk.
No one is saying you can’t turn a starter horse into a superstar or that you can’t get into Zed.run for less than $300. But if you really want to have a chance, if you realiy believe in the game, and if you want to really play, view it as an investment and spend a little more now. You’ll probably make a lot more later.
