I margin traded in jita for years and made 60 million isk into 1 billion in my first couple weeks snowballing from the original time and it got me hooked. Maybe 2011+
I made loads off some of your skin events, like the purity one…not collecting skins from sites, I bought and sold in jita for ridiculous mark-up. I did implants in-game mostly and they’re still viable now.
Couple years back I decided to take a look at doing it with real money and started. Trading account, credit check and I was off. As a municipal government worker I got in early and retired in 40’s…
It’s different in real life (lol) with a much broader range/politics/competent CEO’s, but this game was a good primer for an amateur investor. I made six figures last year from investing in stock and bonds in a stagnant economy and was learning basically by trial and error AND what I did here.
You might notice I buy lots of plex…it’s a thank you, in a way.
