Over in Entropia today 5 licences being auctioned for the world's first virtual banks expired with the highest bid at $99,900 going to a currently unknown avatar Yuri.
Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs who paid $100,000 for a Virtual Space Resort built upon an Asteroid with a nightclub, multiple hunting areas, a stadium, and a 1000-room hotel was one of the winners of the auction and provided live streaming of the auction from his virtual nightclub.
