There's a fairly old MMO, called Mabinogi. It was one of the first MMOs to use a reflexive combat system (as opposed to everquest's hit Q for auto attack). It also plays more like a single player jrpg that happens to be an MMO, than a traditional MMO.

However, Nexon manages it, and they are terrible as far as customer support goes. It took them over two years to respond to a support request regarding NX (the real money currency) stolen from my account.

I would imagine that an inflationary currency would have the same problems, just in a different spot than a deflationary currency.


Inflationary currency:
Man, I'd better buy stuff with this, so it doesn't lower in value.
Shit... I'm getting paid in something that's only going to get more worthless, why should I accept this crap?


Deflationary currency:
Hmm, do I really need to buy X? If I wait a year, I can afford 1.03 X!
What's that? You're paying me in something that will get more and more valuable? Awsome.


The second seems a lot more conductive, as it encourages people to *gasp* save money. A concept that has been lost on Americans for a long time.

>The problem is that with bitcoins, I have to deal with it. I don't want to. I want a simple method of payment that guarantees me my money back if something goes wrong. And I want a simple method of payment that once it's in my account, I know it's in my account, and not subject to removal up to six months later.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
