MPBOR valid August 30th through September 27th : 0.95%.


Major drop in the MPBOR together with very low transaction volume would seem to indicate further adjustments of the bot pricing are in order. On the other hand, significant uncertainty in the exchange market, which has recently bubbled to the surface in the shape of major price discrepancies between the dead and the still living suggest plenty of turmoil ahead. We're in no hurry, and so we shall remain prudent for now.

This month has seen a major development, in the creation of MPEx' sister EVE online corporation, the introduction of share convertibility between S.MPOE and 1BTC (100:1, as EVE doesn't handle so well large numbers) and the first trade of EVE Isk for 1BTC shares (2 shares @ 680mn each sold). Mazel tov, as they say.

    I just realized if you're trading EVE Isk for 1BTC shares, and 1BTC shares are convertible to S.MPOE, in theory 1BTC can be used as a pump for turning Isk into BTC.

    One trades Isk for 1BTC shares, then converts those to S.MPOE then sells off the S.MPOE for BTC.

    Kind of interesting the ways this "pump" could serve as a stable bridge between the Eve economy and Bitcoin economy, given the current market depths of both 1BTC and S.MPOE respectively.

    The market for 1BTC shares isn't that deep yet. I bought shares mostly to hedge Isk vs. BTC

    Well since I'm marketmaking it at the moment it could be said to be deeper than either the whole of EVE or MtGox.

    Fair enough. The 1BTC market is definitely deeper than Gox.

    I was doing some math out of pure curiosity. The total daily market for Tritanium (according to eve-central) is something like 200bn (market depth, not trade volume). If all the minerals together are on the order of magnitude of say 1trn, and the whole market something like 10trn (plex is like 500bn, for instrance) then we could say the entire value of anything in EVE currently on the market is ~15k 1BTC shares. If people put on the market 1/10 of what they have on average this means all EVE economy is worth ~150k 1BTC shares, or about 1.5% of S.MPOE.
