The Entropia Universe is more than a game. The Entropia Universe is for real. Real people, real activities and a Real Cash Economy in a massive online universe. Join people from around the globe who use the Entropia Universe currency, the PED, to develop their characters everyday on the untamed planet of Calypso. The unique and secure Real Cash Economy allows you to transfer your accumulated PED back into real world funds. Online around the clock for decades to come, the Entropia Universe is continually enhanced with new content every month and supported by the Entropia Universe Support Department.
The Entropia Universe is a massive online Virtual Universe. Set in a distant Sci-Fi future, participants assume the roles of colonists who must develop the untamed planet of Calypso. Populated with fierce and dangerous creatures, the perilous wilderness on Calypso is also rich in minerals and ore, both of which can be a lucrative source of income for would-be colonists.
The Real Cash Economy means that the Entropia Universe currency, the PED, is connected to the real world economy through a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar, where 10 PED = 1US$.
The PED currency allows participants to acquire virtual land and equipment in order to develop their virtual character (avatar) inside the Virtual Universe. The outposts, cities and auction on the planet Calypso serve as trading hubs where virtual items such as tools, weapons and minerals are bought and sold by colonists. The wide range of professions available to colonists makes the accumulation of skills and resources a lively business on Calypso. All your economic data is securely contained in your own personal account and withdrawals of your accumulated funds can be easily made according to the exchange rate mentioned above.
