Legacy Virtual Sales Soar

The Gala Games Website shows many of the virtual deeds for Legacy have already sold out. We just learned that this game designed by Peter Molyneux and 22cans was fully embracing blockchain technology, and the cash has already started flowing in. Rock Paper Shotgun did the math for us, calculating that the virtual land sold so far took in over 14,000 Ethereum, which is over USD$53 million. Word is the most expensive item was a London plot that sold for almost $900K. There's an interview with Molyneux on The Verge illustrating why blockchain and the famed designer are a marriage made in heaven:
But what I am immensely proud of is if you make something in your world and you then trade it to someone else, that item that you make, whether it be a building, whether it be a worker, will carry with it all the benefits that you imbued in it. And I think that’s what’s really exciting for me is that the things you acquire on the blockchain will make your world a better place. If you take a worker and you put that worker to work in a mine, over time, that worker will become an expert miner. And then if you take the worker and put him to work in the pub as a landlord, he’ll become an expert landlord / miner. And that sort of experience flows through the whole of Legacy. It’s an all-connected system.

Okay, here is your virtual bridge. May I interest you in some snake(1) oil? Heals everything! Just 10 bitcoins per gallon.
(1) Fine print: may be poisonous and kill you. For real. Not virtually.
No, thank you. The last time I bought your snake oil my hair was grey, and thanks you to it turned into pink!

Peeked at their webpage. The "Startup" plots are sold out, so the next cheapest available is the "Enterprise" for 1.856 ethereum. 1 ethereum to Canadian dollars is $4,763.32 CDN, so 1.856 is $8840.72 CDN. Way to create an affordable game there, Molyneux.
I'm surprised people are even willing to part with their ethereum. It's generally treated as an asset which will only increase in value.
Sounds like a game that is going to be all about money. You cannot do anything without paying money (to Molyneux)

Honestly though, what is wrong with people?
I expect it to mostly be a combination of cryptobros, people hoping for a quick buck by flipping what they bought and some plots being bought by the studio itself (to make it seem attractive to buy into this scam).

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Ah yes, money laundering.

The vast majority of these NFT/crypto purchases are simply legalized (sort of?) money laundering. Plus some morons and wannabe scammers, etc.

What's hilarious to me is we've already moved to virtual garbage exchanged for other virtual garbage. Our entire global economy is going to be inflated beyond recovery by this shit.

Just when you thought DLC, season passes, live services, microtransactions, paying-to-win etc etc couldn't get any worse, this fucking shit catches on.

So glad I got to game through the early 90s onwards. The poor bastards growing up with this garbage will never know any better.
