Is IPv4 a recession-proof asset?

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.

Do you think IPv4 is actually a recession-proof asset?

This topic has been discussed on length multiple times, only things that for next 10 year or so, IPv4 are nice investment, after that there is no certainty . Could be good luck are could be big loss.

I've seen the price for one IPv4 address list for as high as 50 pounds. The days of IPv4 addresses going for pennies on the dollar are long past. You make some great points NocRoom. Are IPv4 addresses recession proof? You can certainly earn recurring income via leasing for the foreseeable future as the implementation of IPv6 has not caught fire.
