The BSX gets an interesting week with the un-listing of Desierto de lo Virtual.

Its been an interesting week, starting with the un-listing of the virtual real estate fund Desierto de lo Virtual, which finally decided to give up its ambitions of returning to Second Life to develop another settlement. And then continuing with a hiccup by Sweatshop Labor Exchange, which made it stop trading on the BSX.

Other than that, we see the Sabotage Hedge Fund grew approximately 20X and that there were lots of winners.

The DMS down motivated in part by the closure of Desierto de lo Virtual.

This week starts with a Digital Material Sunflower stable less strong than 7 days ago. This might be motivated partly with the disappearance of a couple of investment vehicles from the BSX. Among them, Desierto de lo Virtual, an initiative which invested in virtual real estate within Second Life and which had ceased working in the field years ago, but still kept on investing, but finally disintegrated in the last 24 hours. Also, Homies stopped being traded as a commodity for the vending machine, as well as at least another vehicle. Another thing of notice is there seems to be a stampede away from the Linden Dollar, as it is expected Spacebank won’t be trading the currency as much after the definitive closure of the Desert of the Virtual (and Linden Lab soon to be released Sansar).

Anti-colonial gigs and labor exchange.

The week was full of surprises, for once we are reminded that cyberpunk fixes are still in vogue and that there is market for it being stimulated from somewhere in the dark crowded streets of Bronx-Brooklyn-Manhattan. People are looking for gigs inside the anti-colonial underground resistance field. Also, virtual production units seem to be up again within the Possibleworlds server who will turn 12 later this year.

On the down side, we have the labor exchange program Sweatshop, which has been artificially pegged to Mexican Minimum Wage. Perhaps it might be time to see the results of how its economy has performed over the last year.

A stable Digital Material Sunflower.

The beginning of the week saw a Digital Material Sunflower stable, valued at pretty much the same as last week, when compared with the Brooklyn Torch. However we could notice the DMS won a cent against the Tumín and lost a cent against the Second Life Linden Dollar. So basically depending on where is it that you use and trade the network currency, you will notice a slight change.
