I am offering 76B per coin. No amount too small. Max is 1000 GCs. If you do not wish to sell me any GCs, please post your reasons below. This is important, to establish whether or not there is a shortage of cash or of coin, or if the price freeze has in any way affected the market. You also must state how you will deliver these coins to me. Thank you all, very much!

Should read, "Cash". sorry for typo.

Before I sell GC for 76B, I will sell my Strategic stock piles from my Enterprises, Of items I do not manufacture of course...

is there any way to tell which players are collecting gc?
then eventually control that market, and up their exchange rate?
maclean, you theory maybe coming true

At this point, it doesn't matter, really, because if I wanted to pay 500B per coin, I still could not use VA to transfer it. If free trade were allowed, this would resolve itself in a few days.

is it not apparent that you cannot get gc because someone or people are stockpiling them on the shelves?
regardless of what you are willing to pay for them, they may not sell to you. it's like you're trying to buy oxygen from someone when there are no oxygen in the air. the one with the oxygen rather keep the oxygen to live longer than you, rather than sell you their oxygen for your money. you money cannot help them survive.
you should have better luck buy from the gm, as the gm can just wave a magic wand and there will be gc. well, unless gc is actually base on a specific physical quantity of matter/mass.

You are making my point, xiong. I am not trying to force anyone to sell to me, or crying foul because they would rather keep their GC. I understand exactly why no one wishes to sell, for the same analogy you made. My other point is that if free trade were allowed, many of us would then feel more comfortable trading back and forth with sc$ and GC; in fact, before VA was whisked away, several of us were happily trading amongst ourselves at a standard of 100B/GC. This may be the "abuse" that caused the shutdown, I have no idea. No specific details were ever given. The GC were circulating which is what coinage and other instruments of transfer are supposed to do. This fosters economic growth. Fear and uncertainty lead to stockpiling, as a natural result. I, myself, have just had my assets which were in limbo, released. Good luck trying to buy any GC from me! As long as buying from GM is more expensive than trading among players, it is unreasonable to expect that anyone will buy from GM. Unless one disables trade via VA, then the players are totally choiceless.We would easily stabilize the whole thing if free trade were allowed. (yes, I said it again).

the market for players to players should be allowed, so long as some are not just selling hot air in the virtual asset box. that's what i think the gm should be worry about, that some players do not cheat others by packaging hot air only.
my suspicion maybe that gm wants all players to buy or trade gc with the gm, thus create real revenues us$ for w3c? just theorizing that the gm/owner is using gc to control between us$ and sc$, as i've already said. it's very interesting though. the last time i remember other games, such as secondlife is that their ingame currency could be directly trade/exchange with us$. it seems so simple and make it simple for everyone. though didn't have time to ever play that game.
sc seems more challenging, but still lots of quirky things that don't make sense. let's hope it evolve

Xiong: I have stated many times that it is possible that the GC snafu may be that the GMs need the money to make the game pay for them, and that if this is so, they should admit it instead of either spinning a yarn or else answering with a thunderous silence. No response so far.
It is only realy possible for players to put hot air in the asset package once. After that, no one will ever trust them again. Changing names won't work for long, either. As stated above, if the disabling of the VA option is solely to form a monopoly of the GC supply, the GMs should either confirm or deny this, as it would at least clear the air. IMO

they may not want to create a stampede among the players...but still they should inform the dedicated players on the evolution of the game, whether good or bad.
some only need a one shot, that's why i really think that gm should be the security officer or dd officer in any transaction between players. have a contract on what is to be deliver and what is to be paid. make it all safe and sound for both parties.
