How Profitable is Roblox share

According to Statista, kids spent almost a $100 million every month for buying robux (in-game currency).

Roblox is among the top 10 most popular online games of all time. This could be the reason why Roblox began with the absolute bang opening value of $64.50.

Its biggest competitors that could cause a plunge in the stock price are Minecraft, Among us, Fortnite and others. But if Roblox stays ahead of its competitors to sustain its audience then it could be highly beneficial for stock holders.

Roblox Corp’s market cap is $30 billion USD. For an online video game platform, this is a huge market capitalization. Roblox is expected to cross-market cap of $100 billion very soon.
