[12:31 AM] ☣sicut : pls put that in your post too^^
[12:31 AM] ☣sicut : nicely said
[12:31 AM] applepies : while a blind dark pool protects market impact, it removes the visibility of the liquidity
[12:30 AM] ☣sicut : ya, thats what I mean and thats why I dont get the time limit and the invisibility yet
[12:30 AM] applepies : yea ... markets are only efficient if people believe there is liquidity (traffic)
[12:30 AM] ☣sicut : ok ,sry&np...I just got used to need to poke everyone
[12:29 AM] ☣sicut : but I still see no one coming back to it after trying to set something up...getting no response...done forever
1) allow the poster to advertise their bid / offer (make visible their post)
2) display a history of successful trades while making the buyer and seller anonymous ( this should be useful data too!)
[12:36 AM] ☣sicut : pls just post everything...its really refreshing to have some so much new input
[12:36 AM] ☣sicut : he had the same idea
[12:36 AM] applepies : lol yea
[12:35 AM] ☣sicut : so you mean xShammy^^
[12:35 AM] applepies : oh "real money trades"
[12:34 AM] applepies : was saying, although I'm not a fan of RMT, if we want traffic to the trading widget, we should offer the option of RMT
[12:34 AM] applepies : oops am i lagging?
Also, if we are going in this direction (RMT - "real money trades"), we can also have a currency market: Gold / USD.
Basically, this market will display the best bids and offers (highest willingness-to-buy, lowest willingness-to-sell) aggregated by everyone who has indicated they are looking to buy / sell gold.
IMHO, the above feature will address one of the bigger issues now in MD's economy -- many only want to sell their rare cards in USD but not in gold. If we can establish a healthy currency market, and provide liquidity between Gold and USD, this would no longer be such an issue. (More people will be willing to trade in Gold, knowing that they can flip the Gold for USD easily).
Also, the success of the currency market will also drive traffic to our trading widget, as such, promoting the liquidity (and thus, usefulness) of our card market.
