Planet Calypso Adds Citizenship System

The Planet Calypso Website has details on how MindArk is introducing a new citizenship system to this online world based on a real cash economy. This will offer revenue-sharing and will tie in with an upcoming political system that will allow users to influence the future development of the virtual planet. Their projection for this is as dramatic as reports of their six-figure Entropia Universe real estate transactions: "Based on Planet Calypso’s performance over the last twelve months, the potential ROI (Return of Investment) of such shares is expected to be between 27% - 30% per year." Whether users who participate will actually make that much is not certain, but how much MindArk will rake in if this takes off is clearer: They say they are offering 60,000 lots at $100.00 USD each, which would add up to a $6,000,000 take if all are sold.
