Gold Fishing 101 and You Can Too

Day 1,762, 08:34 Published in Ireland Ireland by AppleMan
If you have ANY extra currency you should be using it to Fish for income.

Here's how:

1. Go to the Monetary Market

2. Check out the current Market prices. Click the double arrow Swap button and check out the IEP price. It's been at .003 gold for weeks.

3. Say to yourself:
"I had a maths class once and that's a big inverse difference!"
Because it is.

4. Post up to 3334 currency at 0.003 Gold. There's a daily 10 Gold cap so don't bother doing more.

5. Wait....

6. Keep waiting... (it takes a few days).

7. Viola! Your alert bell will light up to tell you that you now have up to 10 Gold in your account. Whatever doesn't sell is returned to you.

8. Use that Gold for the most dastardly uses you can devise.


9. Go back to the MM and click the Swap button to post it back to the market at the current price. If that is around 380 IEP you can make a great profit. It looks like this:

3334 IEP --> 10 Gold --> 3800 IEP = 14% Profit for 2 minutes of work!

10. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Remember that this takes time so you should have a IEP offer posted at all times. As soon as it's bought get it back up there. Also, don't change your IEP offer or it will reset. The offers are sequenced by age so only the oldest will show up on the 0.003 buy page.

*Pro Tip* The time that you post your offer can effect the success of your catch. High activity times are good but experiment for your best results.

Good Luck and Happy Fishing!

I've done it a couple of times with 2500 @ 0.002 as I didn't have 5k spare. The first time I made about 2g and yesterday my money was returned whole without any bought. If you've got the spare money, it's still worth it, just in case you do get a bite.

Normally, expiry comes with a free gift.

Yep, certain. Anyone doing this might want to re-bait their hook at 0.003 if they haven't already done it as the gold market seems to be continuing to collapse.
