According to sites that track the value of both currencies, KalebPrime’s math is outdated, and WoW gold is now worth even more than the bolivar.

According to the site dolartoday.com, which actively tracks the worth of the bolivar on the black market, the bolivar has dropped to 11,185.95 per dollar since KalebPrime posted .

Meanwhile, according to mmobux.com, which tracks the value of WoW’s in-game currency for sales outside of the game, the lowest sale of 10,000 gold in a real life exchange will get you $1.21.

This drop in the worth of the bolivar is stark compared to its worth just a few months ago. In May, 279 bolivars would net $1, according to CNN Money. In June, the worth dropped to 408 bolivars for every dollar.

The Venezuelan bolivar has continued to see a massive decline in worth over the past few months, becoming essentially worthless. In May, it was reported that inflation within the country was suspected to surge 720 percent by the end of 2017 and a staggering 2,068 percent the following year.

The Venezuelan economy has suffered greatly under President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist regime. The drop in oil prices, combined with the Venezuelan government’s mismanagement of the economy has resulted in a shortage of everything from food to everyday items. The problem is so severe that a February report showed that 75 percent of Venezuelans were losing dangerous amounts of weight.

Furthering the bolivar’s crash was economic sanctions passed by the U.S. on the socialist nation Wednesday. According to the New York Times, the sanctions were a threat from President Donald Trump against Maduro gathering a constituent assembly meant to rewrite the Venezuelan constitution and solidify Maduro’s power over the country.

CNN reported Monday that Maduro proceeded with the assembly, effectively putting the entirety of the Venezuelan government under his control. The Times reported that Trump had warned Maduro on Wednesday that if he carried out the assembly, Trump would push for further sanctions.

Wait, all those people who make a living off of WoW were trading 10,000....whatever currency Warcraft uses for $1.21?

How much playing do you have to do to get enough gold to make a wage off of that s***?!

10,000 doesn't seem like a lot. When I was playing I'd make 1k an hour leveling EASY, and I didn't even take it seriously.

If you farmed old dungeons for cosmetics items and sold them on the auction house you'd make a pretty penny. One of my guildies used to go to the dungeon in the outlands and use a hunter's trap to draw the entire instance to him. Then he'd just wait, kill all the low monsters and pick up the loot. It took him like 10 minutes each time and it gave him a crazy amount of gold and loot for very little work.

there are many doing blast furnace on old school runescape because they can sell the gold for more than a local wage (1m gold is about a dollar, afaik)

Most people doing it are people in sweatshops in China. They spend 15 hours a day farming gold the most efficient way possible.

Lol so, is Venezuela f***ed or what? The prez over there rewrote their laws in order to solidify his rule above all others? How are the people not rising against thia guy and murdering his entire family yet? That sounds pretty crazy.

Also, it's a hell of a time to be a Venezuelan WoW currency broker, now isn't it?!?

Pulled some stuff up immediately after posting.

Looks like the people need to really make this douchebag and all his minions suffer. Power to the people, governments should fear the people, not people fearing the governments. Regardless of country.
