dilithium exange.
 
Greetings all,

Well after playing for about an week i still have loads of fun out there.

But.... I have placed dil on the dil exange and even after 2 days of waiting i still dont have it exnaged for zen...

Now i am a player from the netherlands and find it verry hard to obtain an zen prepaid card.

i can not use inernet for my banking for reasons i wont tell but it causes for me to get zen by exange.

So here my question. how does that exange work and is it used at all at the moment?

Friendly regards from,

Dane Danger Duval

It means you have set your price to high and no one is buying. Just look at the price that others are selling at and reduce your sell price of dilithium. It lists the going rates on the exchange right there on the 'Top Offers to Sell Zen' on the Buy Zen tab.

I am assuming tha u actually offered 25 (default price) dil per zen, nobody will sell u zen at that price. U do have to check the price on the top offers to sell zen (at the top left of Exchange window). Right now, they are selling 1 zen per 92 dil, so type 92 in the "dilithium per zen" box, then in "total dilithium to sell" u put the amount of dilithium u wish to sell. Click "submit offer to buy" and ta-da.

Hey man, thanks for the info.

At least now know what i did wrong.

Just did default offer of 95dill to 1 zen.

Altough i did not know of that left top window being the top offer page and i could check dil2zen price there.

Once more thanks a lot.

Friendly regards from, Dane Duval

You can get Paysafe vouchers from Bruna, kijkshop, hema or AKO.

Best not to offer dil for exchange, try buying zen at lowest offer instead. I exchange my daily limit every day and have a good stockpile of zen now.

It's not just that nobody will sell to you for 25 if you use the default value, it's that they literally can't.

The system is automated in an interesting way. Nobody actually buys, you either sell dilithium or sell zen. The system them matches up offers at the best rate. If you post dilithium at 100 per zen, but the lowest available is 91 per zen, you'll get your zen and a 9 dilithium refund. If you post it at 25 per zen, it won't sell - anyone who posts zen at 25 will end up getting 92, the highest unpaired dilithium offer.

That has never been my experience. If I post dilithium at 80/zen and the lowest buy is 91/zen (as it was yesterday evening) my sale sits there waiting.

Once someone is willing to buy at my price it will fill, apparently "last in first out" but I'm not sure how official that is, I've just seen it bandied around the forums.

You took it the other way around. Off course your offer is not exchanged. You'd be getting quite a bunch more Zen than anyone else.

What has been described is a sorta foolproof tool that doesn't let you get rid of dilithium too easily. For example if you were selling dilithium at 200dil for one Zen (a completely stupid offer, given you could get Zen twice as cheap), the system will still use the current best price for selling dilithium so you won't loose dilithium stupidly.

That's exactly what I described. Posting at 80 is no different than 25, any dilithium posted below the current balance point there's not enough there to cover the lowest buy and it sits. If you post at 100 per zen, however, it'll complete at 91, even if there is zen available at 100 per.

AHHH, gotcha. Thanks for the clarity I had read it the other way round.
