In Isk We Trust: the EVE Online IskBank Exposed 145

riverni writes "Eve News 24 is running a couple of articles uncovering the lucrative 'black-market' existing in EVE Online, a sci-fi themed single-server MMORPG. The overall scale of the operation is breathtaking. While there exist legal ways to exchange real world currency for in-game currency, the black market, primarily driven by botters (users who utilize automated macros to perform rewardable tasks in game), remains strong. One article reports on how made approximately $290,000 in sales during a 10.5-month period. These figures do not include any sales made through their sister site, and yes, those are US dollars."
