Despite the decline of the L$, content creators still cash out hundreds and thousands of US $ every week/month, so deeming the L$ as just game money with no value would be a stupid thing to do at the current time.


Depends on what your goal is. If you're only here to make real life money, then maybe it might be stupid, I don't know. If you're more interested in creating a vivid and burgeoning virtual society, I think I'm correct. Consider that a lot of pressure for content providers to cash out profits in USD (and flood the currency market) is probably related to all the inworld "bills" they have to pay, which are put in RL money, not Lindens.
If the Linden falls too low that same factor (USD running costs) would be responsible for putting content providers out of business (since there is a limit too how much money you're prepared to spend on a game).

From: someone
Ive noticed my sales increasing at a faster rate since the L$ sped up its decline which leads me to assume that the consumer players are buying more L$ cheaper than ever and spending them on my products. Therefore as long as my sales growth exceeds the L$ decline then it's all groovy.

Alternatively my sales may have increased simply because there is a larger population and I am in fact loosing out big time with the declining L$ which I havn't considered until now. Bollocks!


Well, as long as you're seeing your net profits rise, I guess all should be dandy for you. Congratulations! :)

PS: Lindens would of course still be bought and sold, despite "deeming it game money". Like any other MMO currency.

I added the amounts in L$ to point out that the increase in volume of open sell orders is due to the lower exchange rate.

The correct amount of Sell Orders is US$ 56,639. Sorry.

Each day being about 2.8 means the market is retty much stable, with same put in as sold out, right?

In fact it means, that any changes of sales and in-LindeX volume (open sell offers) are proportional. e.g.


Day 1

Sell offers = 20 M, Sales = 10 M, Sell-out Time = 3

Day 2 A

Sell offers = 22 M, Sales = 11 M (input: 22 M - 20 M + 11 M = 13 M), Sell-out Time = 3

Day 2 B

Sell offers = 18 M, Sales = 9 M (input: 18 M - 20 M + 9 M = 7 M), Sell-out Time = 3
