We can help with
-Connecting corps issuing bonds to buyers

In the future we are hoping to
-Build a website/marketplace for buying and selling shares and bonds
-Acting as a rating agency to rate the credit of large corporations

I know everyone is going to say 'bonds dont work in eve because no oversight!!! so you dont know if they'll payout" My response to this is that people IRL buy awful low credit junk bonds that have huge rates of default, not everyone has a low tolerance for risk.

I would also like anyone who would like to be a part of this to message me and we can chat!

Hi Harold,

I would caution you against making many comparisons between EVE and real as my under lying assumptions in real break down when applying to EVE. Yes people do invest in junk bonds but it is not exactly the same as someone investing in a high risk EVE bond/loan. This is because in real it is difficult, not impossible, to take money from people and then completely disappear with all the money but in EVE this is relatively easy to do. So the reason the high interest rate exist in EVE is due to the high chance of someone "disappearing" with the funds while in real this is due to fundamental issues with the company in question.

Also I am not sure how much demand there will be for your services as most of them can be down and have been done right here in this forum without much issue. So you will need to find a unique asset you can offer that is not available here, If you can find such an asset you could be able to make great progress.

I wish you the best of luck with it.

My comparison was that people are always willing to make risky investments

I would also like to point out that MD interest rates are actually ridiculously low for the risk. If we were comparing to RL, most of these 4%-5% loans would be in the 15% to 20% range due to the insane amounts of risk.

That being said, it was a great point, if you have a business proposition, don't try to justify it in comparison to RL, that has no bearing. Justify your plan based on how it's going to be useful in-game.

You may draw ideas from RL finance but you have to remember that the rules here in Eve are similar, at best, and often alien to the orderly and regulated RL markets. If you want to provide a service in the game you need to be aware of what players want. What services they desire, risk profiles they are willing to accept, and how the unique Wild West character and mechanics of the game will help and hinder your ability to deliver. You might have the passion but you don't seem to have thought it through.
