Entropia Universe is an online virtual world featuring a planetary system and a real cash economy that has often caught the attention of gamers with it’s rather large purchases for in-game environments. Recently, a newly discovered moon went up for auction.
Offering up this new moon for a real cash auction, the winner was offered the opportunity to enter a revenue share model with developer MindArk in the profits made from the moon, along with the ability to shape the moon in to practically whatever the owners wanted.
Investment group – Modified Akoz Power – stepped up to the offer and laid down $150,000 worth of real cash in a bid that would scare everyone else away from even trying to enter a bidding war. Stepping away unopposed, this group now owns the newly discovered moon.
