Borrowing From Others - 30 Day Challenge

I'm blatantly stealing a project from another blogger, the 51 Day Challenge.  Beamer Grey started this but never finished it.  I'm going to pick it up, dust it off, and run it for 30 days.

Make as much money as possible on a new alt by ONLY trading.

  • No leaving station
  • Only market transactions can be used
  • Start with 5 million isk as seed money
Each day I will report the following:
  • Starting Isk: The Total Isk from the previous day
  • Cash on hand
  • Buy Orders Value
  • Sells Orders Value
  • Total Isk = Cash + Buy Orders + Sell Orders
  • Liquid Isk = Cash + Buy Orders: This seems to me to be a useful term to have to illustrate what the actually accessible isk is each day.
I started last night, so the first report comes later today!


  1. Looking forward to following this as someone who is just starting to dabble in trading myself. Good luck!

  2. I'm interested in seeing how this goes. I found the other blog about a month ago, but the project was already suspended. Please keep it up.

  3. I plan to do this semi-hardcore (whatever that means). I know I will drop days due to vacations and whatnot, but I want to complete this and provide some insight to new players.

    That said, halfway through Day 1 and I am already up 40% on my 5 million doing nothing fancy at all... The real challenge will be scaling up. I've already found a few modules that seem good, but are proving to be too intense to compete in on my schedule.
