    The price for arkoins is gone be very high, grats to those who alrady have em, very cool event was made whit this land deed for arkoins. But the VERY IMPORTANT questions remains: WHAT SHOULD THE PRICE OF ARKOINS BE?
    Leave your posts here, i hope we have a nice and fair debate that Respects ALL the forum rules. I am specialy thinking on a nice and civilised ton.
    I say the arkoins should be around 300% MU. What do u all think???

    I'm not really a big believer in shoulds when it comes to the market. It's very hard to predict what the demand will be like till be we see the rest of the items in the broker. I have some koins saved up and am waiting to see whether to spend them or sell them to recoup some peds for use in crafting. That sort of decision by the various holders of koins will determine the supply that is available and that will in turn drive MU.

    Fully agree. We also have some 'koins saved from the Goldrush and will look to see what is the best option.

    As for a question on their worth, well thats for the market to dictate, it is a real cash/micro economy after all and so the supply and demand MUST be allowed to dictate the price markup of all materials and items.

    If the 'koins climb to 300%+ then so be it.

    Based on what information about supply and demand did you come to that conclusion?

    Edit: At first I regretted my purchase of the Herman Ark-500 Prototype (L) until I put the stats into entropedia and compared it with its UL counterpart, the SIR-50. Now I've changed my mind. When Arkoin MU is 200%, stats are equal (except for 10% more range for the SIR-50). In other words. Pay 200% for your Arkoins and you can essentially rent a SIR-50 for free, for 7777 ped worth of tagging. I assume the other Prototype (L) guns compare similarly to their UL versions. The only drawback is of course that you can't keep it forever :), and that you have a slightly larger amount of ped tied up in TT value (at first anyway). On the plus side tho, you might be lucky enough to get your hands on a high tier rate gun.

    So I have to change my recommendation... 200% is not too high for the guns. Not sure about the armor or the land areas since those aren't my thing, but if you want a great tagger and don't want to shell out 4k+ MU on a UL model, get one of these Prototypes.

    that is realy nice, BUT ITS WRONG, u can buy a TERITORY whit arkoins my friend, that U CAN USE 6 kind of monsters on that Teritory, it has uniq plants made buy arkadian developers, ppl were puting in 130% at start, some ppl whitout experience realy took the offer and sold a few arkoins, now its geting biger, u see 6 offers for arkoins from 6 difrent ppl on ORDER CHANNEL, so the demand is there, they put prices up to 150%, still a bit more to go, but in the end 200% is to cheap, we will see what will happen, all the ppl who sold for 130% will be very sad, same will go for all the ppl who will sell now for 150....
    have fun.....
    I know u would like to buy arkoins of ppl whitout experience for low price instead of 200%, why not put a extra 80% in own pocket.....

    This is uncalled for Stefan.

    I have mixed feelings about the MU of arkoins. High MU means more people buying my keys (and also buying Neil's keys). Low MU means I perhaps can afford to get a stake in an LA. So it's swings and roundabouts.

    Looking at the situation objectively, a MU of 200% puts LA value at 30k USD. That's what Medusa went for. That's what many LAs with DNA were worth 2 years ago. The Arkadian LAs are rare so that helps with value. But the owner still needs to acquire DNA, when it becomes available. And the population of Arkadia probably means that revenue will be a little lower than you might expect from a Caly LA. 30K usd seems a little overpriced to me.

    Perseus armour was selling for 250 - 300% MU so the at Koin MU of 200% those parts are a good deal. The weapons are also good value at 200%. No opinion from me on the clothes.

    But that LA. That's going to be a big driver of demand for koins. And 200% for that? I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    I agree with Kikki here Stefan. Your comment was unfair and uncalled for. I don't know if you meant it to come across the way it did so please be a bit more careful with your wording in future.

    The reality of it is that the collective market will decide what the eventual MU is for Arkoins, not you, or me or any other individual. If people want them bad enough, they will pay more if they feel the end justifies it. If they don't, they wont. The sellers are just as responsible as the buyers so please don't go pointing fingers.
