PostSubject: Conversion rates in CB (UC/Rt/USD)   Thu Feb 27, 2014 10:44 am

Some food for thought.

Tell me if I violate any forum rules by discussing what is essentially RMT, but I don't see it prohibited under http://www.cosmicbreakfanforum.com/t5373-forum-rules so I'm going to just go ahead.

Unlike other games, there is no legally sanctioned market system to mediate the conversion between in-game currency and "real money" currency in CB.

The following figures places emphasis on current market prices for generics, but 10,000 UC each seems to be a good baseline.

UC = Generic = Rt = USD

One set of Aludra is 10 discs per 100 Rt
Each disc provides 4 Generics * 10 = 40 Generics (Cost of Superior not included)

Market Value for one Generic is 10,000 UC
(this is obviously going to be the gray area because of a lack of proper market)

400,000 UC = 40 Generics = 100 Rt = 10 USD
4,000 = 1 Rt = 0.10 USD

Based off the following figures, with USD as the linchpin this time, wouldn't it be reasonable for UC players to offer 1.2m UC or 120 generics for 30 USD's worth of Rt (as in, monthly premium plans from richer players, although they may argue on grounds that it is 600 Rt worth of goods, so negotiations may be necessary).

A player mediated UC/Rt market would be motivation for those who do not have any Rt options at all.

Admittedly, I have no idea how that would happen apart from entirely private transactions among "trusted" people to keep fraud to a minimum.

I tried buying 130 rt with 400k uc. No one wanted it. Why? Because UC is not so valuable and can be relatively easy attained from arcantus/arena/recently closed valentine chaos.


also that's a lot of uc for 1 rt.

Since we already have such thread, I am willing to buy UC with Rt for those who wants RT.
I am looking at a rate of 20 dollar per 1 million UC.
I'm running low on UC to tune my moes. They need some lovin'

how would such transactions take place though? especially for poorer people who don't live in the US (or has no access to stuff like paypal).

that said Silv, I'm tempted to take up on your offer though it will take me a while to amass the needed UC. Though to be honest I'm more interested in the premium plan (30 USD) for which I'd gladly pay 1.5 million UCs.

Well if you don't use paypal I guess you can temporarily change your password and I will log in and charge your account with my credit card.

And don't worry about me stealing ppl's account cause I spent over $4,000 on my account already and have most of the bots/moes I already need.

Since this is now full-blown RMT (thanks for letting us know!) I'm going to lock this.
