With the increasing number of internet-connected devices, IPv4 addresses are becoming more and more valuable. They're a finite resource, which makes them relatively safe investments, even in times of economic turmoil. This trend isn't likely to reverse anytime soon, which means that the demand for IP addresses is only going to continue to grow. Given this demand, it's no surprise that IPv4 addresses have become quite valuable. In fact, some experts believe that IPv4 addresses could become a recession-proof asset.

While it's true that the price of IPv4 addresses has been rising in recent years, this trend is likely to continue as the pool of available addresses dwindles. They're not subject to the same kinds of fluctuations as other assets like stocks or commodities. So while there's no guarantee that investing in IPv4 will make you rich overnight, it could be a smart way to diversify your portfolio, protect your assets during a recession, and collect recurring income through putting IPv4 up for lease.

No. Because in the future, at least with IPv6, every device should have his own IP, including cars, bikes, trains, robots, traffic lights, etc.
Yes, correct.
IPV4 addresses might go up until IPV6 is truly available for everyone. Once IPV6 hits the markets as IPV4 does, IPV4 addresses will lose value. No need for paying tens/hundreds for 1 IPV4 address if I can build millions of IPV6 addresses for cheap.
 
I'm sure that IPv6 was created not to replace IPv4 - just i order to enlarge number of IPs.
It works like with domain name extensions when after .com we see new ones like .top or .xyz and many others.
That doesn't mean .com loses their value.
 
Ipv6 adoption is happening slower than expected, I think at least for the next decade or so, ipv4 addresses will continue to be valuable and even to increase in price. But, there will come a time where the demand dwindles because ipv6 adoption takes over.
 
I agree with previous answers that ipv6 will most likely replace ipv4. However, this is unlikely to happen earlier than in the next 10 years.
Nowadays not every provider gives ipv6.

Yes I believe.
I am very interested!
 
The current global economic recession has left many wondering if their investment portfolio is safe. However, one asset that has been largely unaffected by the downturn is IPv4 addresses.

IPv4 addresses are a finite resource, with only 4.3 billion addresses available. However, this scarcity has made them a valuable asset, especially as the number of devices connecting to the internet continues to grow. As a result, while the stock market may be volatile, IPv4 addresses remain stable.

The price of IPv4 addresses has increased during the recession as demand for them has increased. So if you're looking for an asset that will hold its value during tough economic times, IPv4 addresses are an excellent option.

This is a real fact, what will lead internet providers to implement IPv6 is to require that systems and sites also do so, as the practice of using CGNat is not a good practice, it brings many insecurities to the network!
 
Lol, ipv4 are a terrible long term asset. Sure term sure, they should hold their value for a year or two, but Ipv6 adoption is happening quickly, a decade from now ipv4 addresses will be worth a fraction of what they are worth now.
 
As long as social media apps exist that don't support IPv6, you are good to go.
