Pretty neat, huh ? This third auction's 70 mn ECu added to the previous auction's 20.5 mn ECu and to the February the 21st's 23 mn ECu as well as to the February 14th's whopperi of 140mn ECu mark an absolute high mark for S.MG monthly sales : 253.5 mn ECu, or a little over two and a half Bitcoin's worth of virtual game coinage.ii

Since there's still significant shortages that have to be remedied from the outside, the Sunday Auctions will continue with

    3 Small Grotesque Altar Conceptions, q 200, qB 76`662 ECu, 229`986 TV ECu.

to be offered at public auction on behalf of S.MG on March 6th, 2016 starting at 17:00 ART, for an opening bid of 230`000 ECu.

See you there!

  1. The variance is pretty dazzling, I must observe. They do say that auctions are the best price discovery mechanism available, but then it would follow that the bundles auctioned were actually worth sums in this wild a swinging array of digits ? Or maybe auctions aren't all they're cracked out to be and people aren't quite as rational as they think themselves ? Questions for wiser people than I. []
  2. Add to this the ~250 mn ECu Electron Spirover put aside as mark-up on his massively successful mining bundle offerings that sold nigh on a billion's worth, and all of a sudden we're talking some serious dough.

    This also means that the cash floating in game literally fell off a cliff - cash reduction in February 2016 is the most significant of any month to date, from a high of 3`032 mn to a low of 1`805 mn - which nevertheless and quite notably STILL leaves the cash volume in game above the 1`346 mn level it was at the close of January.

  1. [...] Secure - while this is arguably included in "reliable" above, it's worth mentioning it on its own too because Eulora's currency, the ECu, is pegged to Bitcoin and transactions as well as fortunes of players in the game can be quite hefty. Some items can be worth a fortune just by themselves, at least as far as the players are willing to bid to get them. [...]

  2. [...] sold on auction Sunday for 10 mn ECu, which is 0.1 BTC or about $65. This isn't by any means a record, just happens to be the most recent [...]
