World of Warcraft In-Game Currency Worth More Than Venezuelan Currency

According to The Blaze, the Venezuelan bolivar has been so devalued that it is now worth less than a single gold piece in World of Warcraft.

Venezuelan resident and Twitter user @KalebPrime first made the discovery July 14 and tweeted at the time that on the Venezuela’s black market — now the most-used method of currency exchange within Venezuela according to NPR — you can get $1 for 8493.97 bolivars. Meanwhile, a “WoW” token, which can be bought for $20 from the in-game auction house, is worth 8385 gold per dollar.

According to The Blaze, this contrasts with May 2017 when–while still heavily devalued–$1 would only net you 279 bolivars.

Maduro and Chávez turned out to be the real world bosses.
