Entropia Universe is the most famous MMORPG game, Multi-World Real Cash Economy. The Swedish developer MindArk has set up a game with a PED currency (Project Entropia Dollars) that can be redeemed back in U.S. dollars according to the fixed exchange rate of 10:1.
The ‘Real Cash Economy’ model offers the players the opportunity to withdraw the accumulated capital directly into their bank account, so each ‘item’ has a real economic value and the capitalization of the accumulated PED can be made at any time. Download Entropia Universe here!
The game was released in 2003 under the title ‘Project Entropia’ with only one planet, Calypso. Rocktropia was released in April 2010 and the Next Island planet Arkadia was released in October 2011, Cyrene in 2012 and Toulan in 2014, and the travel among these planets is done via Space.

The series of records continued over time, so that in 2010 the investor Jon Jacobs sold the ‘Club Neverdie’ property for a fabulous amount of $ 635,000. The investors of Arkadia Planet sold property titles for ‘Arkadia Underground’ at $5 (50 PED) per unit in 2014, and this property was evaluated at $ 1,000,000.
