Playing for Crypto currency
(Loutro Fift) #2

I want to buy crypto currency with my Isk. Already trained currency trading to V.


(Ima Wreckyou) #3

And what exactly would the benefit be of that? Transactions can take hours until they make it into the block chain, how would this even be remotely useful? Why would you increase to load of the game by implementing a crypto miner into the game? This makes absolutely no sense.

This is a game about spaceships, the intended purpose is having fun. If you want to mine crypto, with the intend to make money, go mine crypto.

Also coupling a game economy with RL currency would be really really bad. Do you really think I want to pay taxes for my internet spaceship riches?


(Rhalina Sedai) #4

On that i agree with you.


(Uriel the Flame) #5

This could bring tax avoidance corps to a whole new level though. :rofl:

So you want them to ditch projects discovery and other more needed stuff people would actually play EVE for, and discover the lucrative (or not) world of blockchain technology.

People these days… :roll_eyes:

Also I dont see how it could be incorporated into EVE, I see only cassinos there, CCP doesnt run cassino. I wanted them to make WIS and put there pachinko machines with levers. Machines that could pay out rewards, so a lottery of some kind, and balls for it would be bought with ISK. But they did not listen.

CCP has already stated, on several occations, they wont touch any crypto currency, because of its volatile nature and and instability.
Its simply ro much work to keep up with the ever changing rates and in the end, CCP wont really make money from it.


(Loutro Fift) #9

Due to their poor business practices…


(Yiole Gionglao) #10

As per the OP, hereby I suggest to add heavy construction machinery technology to EVE Online. I always wanted to drive a CAT 735.


(Hipqo) #11

Due to being smart about this particular thing. Crypto currency is way to volatile atm to be touched. The instability in the asian crypto currency marked, combined with threats of bans of certain types in certain countries, makes it a bad business move to invest in crypto currency, when you got currency like Dollars and Euro already.
Makes no sense to invest in, from a gaming company persective and it opens up a ■■■■ ton of RMT options aswell.


(Salt Foambreaker) #12

Please no, they still have not removed the mini games from when that was a fad.


(Ima Wreckyou) #14

Sorry, but I play EVE, because it is a game and because it is not real. This is a game where you can steal, betray, infiltrate, backstab, ransom and scam other people out of their ISK. This is only possible because this is a game and it is not connected to RL value.

How long do you think would it take to get sued in RL if I infiltrate some corp and steal the equivalent of 10’000$ ? Stuff like this happens in EVE and it makes the game great. But it is only possible because it is ISK and not $ and can’t be converted to $ in any way.

So, no thanks. As I already said, go and do you crypto currency stuff, but this makes no sense in EVE and would completely destroy the game.

(Ima Wreckyou) #17

Yeah sure, let them make you a server where you can crypto mine asteroids and talk about the latest bitcoin news with your crypto-hipster buddys in local. Whatever…


(Teckos Pech) #19

Not to mention other problems like corp thefts, bank regulations, etc. There is a reason CCP says you don’t own anything associated with your account and that it has no RL value.


(Ima Wreckyou) #20

Yeah, I think you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about either and just want to talk a bit about something something blockchain because you are so hyped about it.


(Teckos Pech) #21

No. Because if you steal something or blow something up, then the other person can legitimately claim you destroyed something of real world value…no. Just stop it.


(MrZang) #22

:grin:


(Anjyl Took) #23

Try an online gambling game, because when real world money is risked and lost it’s called gambling, not “PvP submarines in space.” And gambling is much more regulated than entertainment games.


(Teckos Pech) #24

Yes and when you rob a corporation and the police show up at your home…? Not my idea of a fun time.
