    The ComPet Shop: Currencies

    ComPet uses a real cash virtual currency: Project Entropia Dollars (PED).

    The PED currency is the main unifying factor between ComPet and Entropia Universe. It should be noted that accounts from Entropia Universe are not pre-registered with ComPet accounts, and that it is not currently possible to move PED directly from Entropia Universe to ComPet (or visa versa).

    In the ComPet Shop, players have the ability to increase their PED balance through real-cash deposits. Deposited PED can then be exchanged for gold and diamonds in ComPet. Gold and diamonds are ‘soft currencies’: they do not represent real-world monetary value. It is perfectly possible to play ComPet using only the soft currencies.

    Here is a quick overview of the currencies and their uses in ComPet:
