Virtual Highway currency now traded on Podex

Press release: Virtual Highway Expands and Upgrades Servers, Announces Partnership with Currency Exchange

Colorado and Wilmington, DE — Podex Exchange, a US company in operation since 2007, has partnered with Virtual Highway to provide a currency exchange service to the grid’s residents. Terminals are available in the new member center and in various venues across the grid.

This partnership will allow residents who do not have access to US-based PayPal services to use local money transfer services for safe exchange of their currency to V$.

Virtual Highway, an OpenSim grid established in 2009, has also purchased new servers and doubled their land area to 231 regions. This made the grid the third fastest-growing OpenSim grid for the period of April 15 to May 15, according to Hypergrid Business. As part of the expansion, they have relocated the servers to a new hosting facility that will allow for better international access and stability.

In April, Virtual Highway also reached a total resident milestone of 1,000 registered users, and continues to court new residents with entertainment and shopping options. For instance, music lovers can enjoy DJ parties and live performers at a number of new venues and clubs that have been built.

    I am wondering how Podex can be allowed to exchanges the virtual and real currency since no one else than the 5 company listed on the seondlife’s wiki are in the authorized resellers program…

    Anaelle, I believe it is because Virtualhighway(VH) and second life(SL) are two different companies, They are completely unrelated to each other, other than VH using an old code line of SL. So VH is not bound by SL’s Terms Of Service.
