Blade & Soul's Currency Exchange System Allows You to Trade Gold in Game Safely
Blade & Soul's western closed beta will start on October 30 and in the beta version players will be able to test the currency exchange system with which they can buy and sell gold using NCoin, a currency purchased with real money and can be used to buy virtual items in the store of all NCsoft MMOs. The currency exchange system provides a secure way for players who want to buy gold and it helps counter gold farming bots.
The trading price is determined by player supply and demand, meaning what gold is available on the Exchange depends on what’s been listed by other players. When purchasing, a player will use NCoin to buy available gold put up for sale on the Exchange by another player, and the seller will receive a converted amount of Hongmoon Coin for use in the Blade & Soul in-game shop.
Hongmoon Coin is a currency specifically used to purchase cosmetic and consumable items from the Hongmoon Store. You can also make purchase in Hongmoon Store with NCoin, and the only difference is Hongmoon Coin can be earned through playing Blade & Soul.
