An Experiment in Virtual Money

Avatar Crowns

Avatar Crowns are points you can earn on this website to buy gear from Shroud of the Avatar.

It’s a bit of fun and rewards those who use this website.

You can earn them for doing basic things such as:

Registering an account (one time only), 10 Avatar Crowns
Logging in (daily), 1 Avatar Crown
Having a comment published (one per day at the moment, spam will be deleted) 1 Avatar Crown

You can view your Avatar Crown balance in your profile page.
I am starting to add initial items to cash in your Avatar Crowns with.

Right now I am offering “sale” items, drastically reduced to encourage people to use the site and test the system.

I’m setting the exchange rate at approx. 10 Avatar Crowns to 1 SOTA gold.

Let me know what you think and start earning Avatar Crowns, who knows, it could be the next bitcoin 😉

    I have no idea how I got to 21 crowns, I registered yesterday or day before, my math is seriously failing me here 🙂

      Haha, me neither, I will look into it. This is definitely a work in progress and there are bound to be some kinks to iron out.
      I mean, Shroud has taken 4 years and still not finished 😉

    I think I found the problem. When I set the point system up I played with a few ways to earn and hadn’t deleted them. One was looking at content, although you would have only earned 1 point for this, but there were others.

    I shall see if the problem happens again. I tried to replicate it myself and saw issues.

    Right now you get a point for logging in and a point for visiting, once you have registered. I shall play around with this till it feels good.

    I could offer people points for posting content and then allow others to gift points for good content.

    This is experimental right now so we can play around a bit.
