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:


I maxed out Education! Which means I now have a 25% technology discovery chance each day. The last 2-3 weeks have been terrible in terms of discovery luck, as I did not get any tech. But yesterday I got another Drone Technology, which reduces crime by 5%.

Since I already have one for this account and don’t need one for my other dcity, I have decided to put it on the market for 2000 SIM. There are a few on the market that are a lot cheaper, but those are only a handful and in the historic sales I see that some people spent 2000+ sim for this technology. So I will be patient for a while and see if I can sell it for this higher price.

Now that Education is maxed out, I might start focussing on maxing out Homeless and Immigrants training, but first I will buy more Farms. If I do that for a while, I will be able to buy 3 or more random cards when finally the 3rd edition cards come out.

Gerber is still testing the random events and he is taking his time with this. I expect this update to be bigger and more complex than the 2nd edition. I think this project is starting to be too big for a one-man business, even if that man is Gerber.



For this dcity I am also at a point where I would be able to buy at least one random card every day in case the 3rd edition would come out soon.

But for now I will stick with buying Farms and increase my income as efficient as possible.

A strategy that I have been thinking about, that I might try out a bit someday is buying 2nd edition random cards, where I only keep the Farms, Wind turbines and Park’s and sell the rest. Special buildings like Military industrial complex, Hospital and Social aid Office I would keep ofcourse, but selling the other cards would be an interesting strategy.

Anyway, that’s what I am thinking about currently. See you next 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.
