Virtual currencies may have started out as just another feature. A way of keep track of a contestant's scores. A way to buy a handful of gimmicky digital products. Today that's no longer the case. Today, virtual currencies are an asset. Today the industries largest companies from Google to Facebook buy virtual currency companies. Today virtual currency companies partner with real world retailers (like WalMart) and real word payment systems (like American Express Reward Points). To reach that level of success is not easy. It requires a thoughtful construction of a virtual system and its own rules and regulations. Remember: Real world laws will have no real impact on virtual world currencies. It is up to you to set up the basis of laws and regulations that will govern your new virtual currency world.
