Virtual economies attract real-world tax attention
Well, I'm starting my own virtual economy. Right now, in this LJ entry.
Anyone who posts a comment in this journal will immediately get ONE MILLION ZOG-DOLLARS! (once per account only)
The Krondar Foundation: Z$100,000
Zog-dollars exist only within the context of this LJ entry, and its comments. They can be used to buy made-up items described in comments. Also, you can transfer them to other people by saying so in a comment. If you want to sell the zog-dollars for real dollars on eBay or something, feel free. Actually, I encourage it. The first person to successfully auction off any zog-dollars on eBay for real money gets ONE BILLION ZOG-DOLLARS.
Let the virtual economy begin!
