Facebook Ends its Virtual Currency Credits

Facebook Ends its Virtual Currency Credits

Facebook is undergoing some radical seismic changes in its structure. It has literally pulled the rug from beneath its Credits program. This was announced some time ago and now it is finally going into effect. Its local legal tender payment API is about to begin. What that means is that its virtual currency (which was in fact rather like Bitcoin) is going out of business for now at least. 

Facebook Credits made its debut about two and a half years ago. So many game developers utilized the platform as a source of surrogate currency as well as an in-side currency game. Finally, Facebook made its virtual currency compulsory six months after its launch date. It was all ultimately a ploy to help out developers. Their efforts as economic exchange actors across a wide range of currencies were facilitated by this facility.

The whole plan had been laid out to help clarify and simplify the economic process. Yet it backfired. There were complications and loopholes that got in the way. Ultimately, the Credits system had to be abandoned in favor of a local currency program. 

The economic house of cards that is the world economy is so sensitive and delicate that the slightest wrong move by producers and consumers can send it falling to the ground in a heap. And that is called a depression. The same laws count for any virtual currency system since it too is based on the real world model. So the story goes for Facebook’s timely decision to change its path.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
