Growing Bitcoin Game Hits High for Single Day Play-Seconds

Eulora, the flagship game produced by The Ministry of Games, clocked a single-day play-seconds record of 510`537 earlier this week. Over the course of these nearly 142 hours of combined play, a handful of players perhaps took advantage of the apparently dwindling, and periodically refilled, loot pools graciously seeded by S.MG shareholders. Players in the world of Eulora also enjoyed a not quite record breaking,1 but still remarkable level of over the counter trade. The total value can only be approximated, but reasonable estimates2 put it somewhere in the range of 0.3 to 0.42 BTC.3 This figure amounts to approximately one percent of the combined holdings of all players in the game.

  1. Although one could argue the differences between casual IRC trades and somewhat organized post-event trade, and claim that yesterday's dealings were indeed record breaking; at least I can't recall a more trade-packed day.

  2. In Eulora terms, this is 30 to 42 million coppers which trade one-to-one with the satoshi, the smallest unit recognized on the Bitcoin block chain.

  1. O my god, the problem of trading very small amounts of Bitcoin cheaply and quickly has been long resolved, you can just move ECu back and forth ? Incredibru!
