To avoid scrutiny of taxing authorities, the providers must take concrete actions to demonstrate the valuelessness of their game currency. Those sites will direct you to places to transact in that grey market. Note that if you are caught, your account may be revoked and your treasure destroyed, since the MMORPG providers have a keen interest in squashing those markets.

If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons! EDIT: Sorry I wasn’t very specific. This thread is about games that allow you to sell in-game items and currency for money. A lot of games have PLEX systems. PREFACE 1: This topic is NOT about your opinion on such games positive or negative. Please read the OP before posting.
This is about games that allow it in some form or another. EULA violations how it was implemented in those games. ENTROPIA UNIVERSE – This game is like the poster child of RMT games. I found it’s implementation very interesting but flawed. Real world currency is used to buy the ingame currency. Then almost everything you do in-game costs currency. For instance hunting costs ammo and unless you get pretty lucky or have a very good character you are likely to lose more in ammo then you get in loot.
It’s like a virtual slot machine with the odds getting slightly better as you level your character. The upside that I did like about this game is has no monthly premium. When you get back you’ve lost nothing and pick up where you left off. That at least, I found pretty cool.
