The title alone should have been shocking, yet it is true. Since Pokemon GO launched, there have been many services and businesses profiting off of the new augmented reality game. What becomes hard to believe is that some people are selling accounts for thousands of dollars on a website called Player Auctions. It gets even more insane! Some prices go as far as $1 million. Are there players willing to pay that amount? Only time will tell.
For $1 million, you get to customize your account as you wish. That means you can ask the service provider to catch the Pokemon you want and as many as you wish. CNBC reports that one user has sold his account for $2000 on a website called League of Trading. We see that people are willing to pay but it is quite disturbing to think that one may pay $1 million for a Pokemon GO account. Some have made account trading as their full-time job and this shows us that the world has changed ever since Pokemon GO was released.
What’s next? A university course on how to market your Pokemon GO account to fans? At this point, we wouldn’t rule that one out! Still, it is an interesting concept and makes our world more interesting. Possibilities come in all shapes and forms and perhaps Pokemon GO has opened new paths to success.
