  • Mason Versluis browses the web for new projects that have the potential to go mainstream.
  • He bought HBAR, XRP, and QNT before they all spiked by more than 600%.
  • Now, he’s betting on metaverse-linked cryptos because he says it’s the obvious new wave.

Mason Versluis, who goes by the pseudonym Crypto Mason on TikTok, began investing in crypto in 2017. Since then, he’s spent his time browsing the web for new projects that have the potential to go mainstream.

He bought Hedera (HBAR), a possible Ethereum competitor, when it was at $0.03, and it’s since gone up by about 1200%. He bought Ripple’s XRP at $0.17; it’s since up 600%. And he bought Ethereum-based Quant (QNT) at $28; it’s up about 864%, according to screenshots of the transactions Insider viewed.

In the last five months, Versluis has had his eyes on cryptos tied to the metaverse, a sort of digital universe that allows people to interact in virtual worlds. And he says his interest has nothing to do with Facebook’s big metaverse splash and rebrand to Meta. What sparked his attention was a tweet about someone selling a virtual property in one of these digital worlds for $913,000.
