Is Coming From RuneScape Players Who Invest from Kin Gang's blog

RuneScape gold has been a lifeline for his family and Martinez. He tells Polygon he earned $450 by golden farming in RuneScape, and used that cash to flee Venezuela and proceed to Peru. He continued to play RuneScape and saved an additional $1,000, which he used to get his mother and girlfriend from the nation. "RuneScape is a super popular approach to make money in this era," Martinez writes. "Depending on which condition in Venezuela you're from, pretty much everybody knows about RuneScape."

It's nothing new, as Venezuela's infrastructure has been not able to function in the past couple of years, however, it's become more conspicuous. Every Venezuelan RuneScape player we talked to for this narrative told us they sell their gold for either U.S. dollars or cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, which means that their hard work is not jeopardized by the hyperinflation of their own currency, the Venezuelan bolivar.

They don't fight to find places to invest the money that they earn, either -- a recent study estimated that 54% of trades in Venezuela last October were completed in U.S. dollars. "I personally know a lot of people who left the nation thanks to OSRS and know people hoping to take action," he continues. "I'd say that nearly all the youth that have had the chance to leave the country have done so -- probably either via OSRS or alternative ways.

"Things are getting steadily worse over time. I still have my sister and nephews around -- you can't have a normal job; a large amount of households live off the cash their expats send them." There is an abundance of online sites which specialize in the purchasing and selling of RuneScape commodities. It is a fiercely competitive marketplace, with several websites taking out Ads to appear on top of search listings.

No gold farming strategy is the same

Christian Alejandro is a college student studying geological engineering, but he spends his spare time about college responsibilities, generally 10 hours a day, leveling up buy old school runescape gold accounts in the Nightmare Zone, a combat-based minigame. This enables one to quickly level up combat skills for the accounts he is playing, which, once large enough, are then sold for U.S. dollars to other RuneScape players. He's paid an hourly rate to do so, and earns $100-150 every month. By posting a Reddit thread asking for work alejandro got the gig.
