The LindeX Currency Exchange
Now that the Neteller founders are being prosecuted on money laundering in conjunction with racketeering laws, the existence of The LindeX Currency Exchange will become increasingly controversial. (By the way, here is a virtual casino property that was auctioned on EBay.)
When I first mentioned ways to gamble with real money in virtual worlds in July, reaction was muted. To this day at Terra Nova, there is almost no discussion on this issue although its authors pride themselves on straddling real and virtual economies. Nonetheless, more people are starting to ask questions.
One moral of this story is that we should eschew legal "hacks". I hope to have something more constructive to say in a couple of days.
