'World of Warcraft' Currency Is Now Worth 7 Times as Much as Venezuela's Cash.
What’s remarkable is how much more valuable that virtual currency has become.
To put things in perspective, last August, WoW‘s virtual gold was worth just under twice as much as the bolivar.
Today, it’s worth nearly seven times as much--and possibly a lot more than that if you consider the black market value.
Tokens can be bought with either $20 real world cash or sold for a fluctuating amount of in-game gold.
By those calculations, World of Warcraft virtual gold would be worth 6.8 times as much as the bolivar.
By that figure, WoW gold would be worth nearly 62 times as much as Venezuela’s official currency. »
