Empire Avenue is Introducing V


When we started Empire Avenue we had a singular goal of providing people with the benefit of being able to exchange the value derived from their social networking online into things they could use. We’re about to make that dream a reality and with it comes the need for a second, complimentary currency.

Since the very beginning of Empire Avenue we have talked about our social currency as being called Eaves and this announcement does not change that. Eaves is now made up of E (which you have already been using) and V (our new complimentary rewards currency). E, denoted by the small “e” or the currency symbol for “e”, are used throughout the site especially in the Social Stock Market where your Share Price, Dividends and Investments are all handled with E.

Our new complimentary rewards currency to go together with E is denoted by “V”. You might notice that our new Empire Avenue logo contains both symbols quite prominently.

We will be rolling out display for V’s throughout the site over the next few weeks. Any user will be able to use V’s, like airline reward points, through Empire Avenue to exchange for goods and services, starting with Digital Entertainment mostly for those in North America (US and Canada) but we’re already working on more. We will reveal more more details in the next few weeks about what you can exchange V’s to — including more details on the the Digital Entertainment.

Obtaining V’s – You will be able to obtain V’s in the following ways:

  • Performing Missions which payout in V’s
  • Buying V’s from Empire Avenue
  • Through special events, activities or other promotions

Using V’s – You will be able to use V’s in the following ways:

  • Exchanging for items for use in Empire Avenue
  • Exchanging for items for use outside of Empire Avenue (such as Digital Entertainment)
  • Creating Missions for V’s
  • Conversion to E’s for use in other parts of the site

The question going through most of our users minds will be, “how can I use the E’s that I have accumulated?” We haven’t forgotten you! E’s are very important to us. Almost all items purchasable with V’s will be available for a discount when you use E’s in conjunction with V’s. For example, if an item will have a value of 100V then you might be able to obtain it for for 80V with a certain amount of E’s.

Since I am living in Asia as several other tickers, I am just concerning about >>> “…starting with Digital Entertainment mostly for those in North America (US and Canada)”


How to Pay it Forward at [X]Pendapalooza 11?

On October 12, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. EDT, Empire Avenue (EAv) will host [X]Pendapalooza 11, a 24-hour social event that has been held only twice in the past year. Empire Avenue is a virtual stock market game that pays “eave” dividends based on players’ social networks and activities. For an [X]Pendapalooza event, dozens of established players spearhead a buying frenzy that elevates the stock prices of newer players.

If you have considered joining Empire Avenue, or you have an account that you left to languish, an [X]Pendapalooza event is the best time to stop by and see what fun you can have.

Pay it Forward at [X]Pendapalooza

A few elite players have grumbled this time around that they may not be able to participate in the party because they have maximized their investments in as many players as the game allows. Here are six ways anyone can participate in [X]Pendapalooza 11 on Empire Avenue, only one of which might require having more pie:

1. Enter your ticker on the appropriate list on [X]Pendapalooza day.

[X]Pendapalooza 11 starts October 12, 2013 at 10:00 am EDT, so you should plan to visit the community at this time or as soon as you can after this time. There are two lists, so experienced players can enter their names as well and possibly gain new investors.

2. Buy shares in any players on the lists you can.

I like to grab 100 in every player with a price less than 50e, fifty in those less than 100e, twenty-five in those less than 200e, and ten in everyone else, but it all depends on how many eaves I have.

3. Run missions giving eaves away.

Another big part of the fun for players, especially newbie players with an eave shortage, is that along with the flurry of buys they are getting, they also have the opportunity to complete a bunch of goodwill missions to fund their own purchases. When you buy shares, usually you are only passing ten percent of the eaves to a player. (Actually, you pass on even less after paying commissions.) With missions, you can pass closer to fifty percent or more of your eaves–depending on your account level and any fees. Other players then use your eaves to participate in the buying frenzy.

Personally, I do not recommend including requirements in a pay-it-forward mission, but when you give the eaves away, you can certainly use the mission link to send players to your Facebook page, a tweet or a photo that they will feel free to like or share. Do not expect anyone to take the time during [X]Pendapalooza to read a blog post though. Keep it simple.

In keeping with the pay-it-forward spirit of [X]Pendapalooza, many of the [X]Bar veterans I have seen at these events humbly suggest, “Don’t buy me today. Invest these eaves in newer, less expensive players.”

4. Engage with other players’ missions.

You do not have to grab their eaves if you do not need the revenue, but you can share appropriate content with one of your streams or connect on another network.

5. Encourage other players.

Leave a shout out on the timeline of a player whose price has jumped 10e or who has added twenty new investors. You might want to note the stats the day before of a few players you wish to engage. Then track their progress during the event. Conversation is at an all time high during [X]Pendapalooza. Be a part of it.

6. Cross-promote the event.

Let folks on other networks know that Empire Avenue has a huge event on the horizon, or happening now, as the case may be. [X]Pendapalooza is a great opportunity for newbies to make new connections, watch their share prices soar, and make some generous purchases of their own.

Hold the Pie

For what it is worth, I am not a fan of [X]Pendapalooza being combined with an EAv pie event. [X]Pendapalooza is about connecting with new investors. More pie simply extends the amount players can invest in stocks they already hold. The site is busy with buys already during [X]Pendapalooza, adding pie buys to the congestion slows down the pay-it-forward buys. It also makes it even harder for newer players to make reciprocal buys to the new investors they meet that weekend, as they will feel obligated to acknowledge pie buys with reciprocal buys as well.

But then, I have a blast at every event, so I will not complain whatever EAv decides about pie. I hope I see you there!

Oh Me Oh My There’s Some News About Pie.

Are you ready for some extra dessert?

Empire Kred

Autumn. The leaves change, the weather gets cooler, and pumpkin themed beverages, and pastries begin to flood the streets. Not to be outdone, Empire Avenue thought that this would be a great time to release some Pie of our very own!

Yes, Pie! A delicious dessert brimming with filling and opportunities. Empire Avenue’s latest pie will allow you to increase the shares you can purchase in others to 1,800 for the reasonable cost of $25. Remember that in order to be eligible for the new Pie upgrade you must have first purchased all previous Pie upgrades.

Speaking of previous Pie upgrades, Pie 17 will soon be available for Eaves! The Eaves cost of Pie 17 start at 3.5 million Eaves, but will be scaled depending on your wealth level just like the Portfolio and More Dessert Power Ups.

With Pie 18 right around the corner, this is the perfect time…

The first Empire Avenue iPhone App is finally a reality (released Aug. 2010)

Empire Avenue iPhone App Released!

The developers, IntenseApps.com, have received word from Apple that their app, Intense Trader, has been approved and will appear in the AppStore later this week. Intense Trader will sell for $0.99. IntenseApps has provided THE INFLUENCIER with an advance copy of the app. The tool simplifies many of the routine activities one performs on Empire Avenue and provides a plethora of innovative, customizable alerts, including notifications for rising and falling share prices, share availability and an influencer’s online status. Some features, such as the the ability to automatically sell shares of an influencer who sells shares they own in you, may prove to be controversial. Our in-depth, hands-on review of the app with detailed descriptions of features, flaws and screenshots follows.
