ISK faucet


An "ISK Faucet" refers to any mechanic where ISK enters a players wallet from a non-player source i.e. No player loses ISK, but one player gains ISK.

This causes inflation within the economy, as the total amount of ISK in the universe increases, but the amount of goods in it remain the same (or decrease).


Examples:

  • Selling to NPC Buy-Orders (Trade Goods, Dogtags)
  • Claiming on Insurance
  • Receiving Bounties from killing NPCs (not killing Players with bounties)
  • Mission ISK Rewards

Common Myths

  • Selling goods to another player is not an ISK Faucet. It is an ISK Transfer (in fact, it is an ISK Sink as far as taxes are concerned).
