Now that they’ve got a policy that encourages C2C RMT, they should put in the technology to secure and automate it. That’s what they owe their customers: it prevents fraud. That’s how they can make money: global RMT estimates run as high as $800 million a year. That’s what Sony does with Station Exchange: they handled more than $180,000 in transactions in their first month.
Hey, Mobius, you pioneered B2C g-commerce in the Philippines. Heck, you deployed the first online gaming metacurrency in the Philippines. Level Up’s technology and marketing suffer a disconnect, but it’s only a matter of time before they bridge that disconnect to make money by securing and automating C2C RMT a la Station Exchange. Are you going to let Level Up get the jump in C2C g-commerce?
