    Kickstarter.

    Add-on store.

    Telethons.

    Seedinvest.

    Neverdie.

    How's about delivering on what you promised for the first one before you hit the user community up for yet more cash. You're almost 3 years past your initial promised release date and all you've done is beg for money. Or mask begging for money as an investment opportunity. And most of what I see are ass-kissers saying what a great idea this latest Neverdie scheme is. I imagine the praise and adulation sounds similar to one of Trumps lackey meetings... everyone kissing ass, no one saying what they're really thinking.

    Don't ask for any more money. No matter how you veil it.

    Pretty much my take away.
    Game first. Figure out what you want to do with it after.
    Doesnt seem like your asking for yet another funding..
    Tho im assuming you paid for this partnership? ..
    Did this funding come out of what should have gone to more development of the game?
    I dunno above my investor grade.

    W.e works just work on the game, and im happy.

    I very much look forward to this wonderful opportunity to help evolve our virtual worlds as Lord British has always don throughout his long successful career in gaming. Count me in, as this is just another addition to creating a much more rich gaming experience "within our game" ;) I do hope our Portalarium links many aspects of our game into this "virtual investment model" :)~Time Lord~

    USD can be spent almost anywhere in the world and COTO are easily translated into them. If you think you'll be paying your electric bill with these third rate crypto tokens without trading them to someone for USD you are mistaken. They might have some value in other games without translation if they can get other developers to sign on, but real world value at the local 7-11 will be nil.

    Just saw this on RT news hope they recover from it...

    Some $32 million worth of ether cryptocurrency has been stolen by hackers. Ether, a digital currency, resides on the ethereum network and is now a rival to Bitcoin. The monumental theft was carried out due to a bug on a wallet software program.

    :oops: After having read all our suggestions and other comments...

    :eek:"SOTA's Not So Secret Project Big Boy":confused:!'

    :rolleyes: I would like to see our COTO enter into a similarly styed market "within our own game", while also allowing the NEVERDIE currency to also enter into our market and then allow for both market base's fluctuations to take their natural pathways into their future. I say this because they are separate things and as such will rise and fall depending on all the many things that deal with them. I would go as far to say that our SOTA's COTO then (if given a similar fluctuating value, yet using their current value as a rock bottom of value) our COTO would then become a supporting currency to NEVERDIE's currency, in that they may become traded between them within our forum's market place between players. If our current COTO value has a base value, then that would naturally help the NEVERDIE's marketable value by their sharing our SOTA's market stability, having the COTO's rock bottom insurance value guarantee in our Add-On Store. By freezing our COTO's rock bottom price compared to the USD, yet allowing it to fluctuate further upward through a similarly styled "what's being killed or what's making the most gold today within our game" investment, our SOTA thus encourages our own game's players to come play us, as well as that same player base which would naturally be encouraged to try any other game within the NEVERDIE stable of gaming. It's because our COTO would have it's rock bottom guaranteed value within our own Add-On Store, frozen, yet allowed to increase in value that would allow our SOTA to continue providing it's high quality virtual values at competitive prices o_O... It could also be possible that our fluctuating virtual values of our COTO & NEVERDIE could be only fluctuated within our Elven's COTO Shop, while keeping our ADD-On Store's values at those frozen COTO value's current values vs the USD :cool: which means it then pays to be actually playing our game ;)

    Our game having such a prominent positioning within NEVERDIE's executive positions only adds to our current SeedInvest's plans as well...
    Let's see just an example of this advantage point where our SOTA could be more supporting our current NEVERDIE program through the ways of our #2 :cool:
    https://www.seedinvest.com/portalarium/series.b
    :rolleyes: Both of these programs actually make a very promising outlook in complementing the other "Indeed"!

    There's no doubt that within the current listed games on the NEVERDIE web site ( https://neverdie.com/index.html ) that our SOTA would be the current "Big Boy" within that group of games listed ;)

    You just said COTO, NEVERDIE, and SOTA so much that I'm inclined to accept this proposal :p

    One of my family members tried to get me on the bitcoin bandwagon when it had just started... and well I always refused making money for nothing, I think like that since I'm 15 years old (because of ultimas and the way they changed my whole thought paradigm) and we started being able to make money from clicks on webpages. He's now filthy rich, like many of my friends who did the same : I can barely pay my dentist and well... all my calls for help or trying to borrow money has been ignored (from all those friends and family who got rich).

    Thats life's delicious irony for me... so yeah... I'll continue watching and laughing while the opportunity to create real value is ignored. I guess someday, somewhere I publisher is going to realise that not everything translates to math and money. Then I will become 10 times richer, but my conscience will be clear as diamond.

    I don't want to sound as if I'm against the idea... I'm not I think sharing value between games and for services is a great idea... its just incomplete.

    It lacks the whole root who puts fire in the hearth.

    BTW - crypt0 -currency is all WAY too hard for anyone. It took me days to buy bit coins a few years ago and again to prep to accept ETH much less NDC & TPT tokens. Obviously we could give them to anyone, until we / they / someone figures out a much easier way for them to be in use. Again, this is a long term experiment. Yet, worthwhile, I believe!

    I remember when we were first talking about our POTs issuing their own currency. We've now got the paper and the pens, so where's the IOUs for that now, since most of all currency isn't backed by much of anything but the word of those who issued the paper in the first place ;)~TL~

    The problem is in order for the Neverdie tokens to have real value they have to be listed on some exchanges, and have use support across a plethora of titles so if one goes down (like MMOs tend to do) or the user base isn't there to sustain a use case.
    I think a lot of people new to crypto think they're investing in the next Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin or any of the other coins with $1 billion plus market capitalization which is why there are so many Ethereum based token ICOs coming out now, problem being a lot of them are pump and dumps.
    With the seedinvest, this, and regular funding telethons it seems more like "investing" to keep the game afloat for the niche community still playing rather than bring in new players by making the game have more of a wide range appeal.

    The word TOKEN is very misleading and can mean many things and setups.

    The WOW token is Blizzards way of bringing some aspects of their website into the game itself without having to access the website and they also allowed you to buy certain things with them like pets or game time coupons with ingame gold.
    This type of TOKEN is like the COTO in that its is housed ingame and managed on the game site.

    The ether token or coin is a whole different thing, its external from the game and like bitcoin but they also have a toolkit that allows anyone to make their own so this can be misleading in a way. Most made with the toolkit have no value, and mainly novelty items, and was just someone creating them just to try and make flash money.

    Example someone made a F**K token and set up a website never saying it had any value and the reason for buying them was if your friend is sad give them a coin to let them know you give a F**K. They have sold about 15k usd of them so far.

    So WOW token is like COTO token both housed and controled by the owners of the game.
    Ether tokens are like bitcoin tokens in that they have value and can be sold at any time on a value sliding scale like the stock market.
    Novelty token coins created with the ether toolkit seem to be more of a flash money generating venture for the creator of them vs their having a fixed or sliding value that can be redeemed for cash at anytime.

    Indeed it does....

    From the book:
    "But GSS’s primary source of income came from teleportation fares. Teleportation was the fastest way to travel, but it was also the most expensive."

    " SotA will have a strong, regional, player run economy. The only means of fast travel will be lore based rifts, to help establish proper trade routes!

    What? Letting people pay us real money for fast travel? Sold”
