The Trade Center is where you can send assets to other gangsters including a secure escrow feature.
A number of different assets are supported:
- Money (taxed at 10%)
- Bullets (taxed at 20%)
- Prison bribes
- Inventory items such as perks and drugs (must be transferable)
To exchange assets with someone, open a trade. This will let you both place a number of assets in the trade and then agree to accept the trade before the assets are exchanged. If you don’t like the trade, you can decide to cancel it. The process is secure and protects you from scamming, you should always use this option when exchanging assets.
If you don’t complete or cancel your trade within an hour, it’s automatically cancelled and closed.
If you just want to send an asset to someone without expecting anything in return, use the “Send Gift” option. This sends the asset straight to your recipient without them needing to accept.
DO NOT use this option with the expectation of receiving something in return, that’s what the main two-way trade function is for. Scamming is not against the rules.
Some asset categories have a trade limit in place. This limit is shared between the Trade Center, Auction House and RPS deposits.
Limits in place
- Drugs: Limited to sending 30 units per 24 hours
- Drugs: Limited to receiving 15 units per 24 hours
- Bullets: Limited to sending 200,000 bullets per 24 hours
Why does Gangster Nation need Trade Limits?
Trade Limits are a necessary evil to help prevent cheating the following ways:
- Someone creating multiple accounts to send assets to one account; and
- Someone buying or selling in-game assets for real currency outside of the game; and
- Someone who finds an exploit to generate assets and then tries to send them out across the game (this has very rarely ever happened but if it did happen again, Trade Limits would help minimise damage).
Although some people dislike trade limits and they weren’t needed in the past, they’re important to help keep the game fair due to some players abusing the game.
