[There are two chief variations of RuneScape 3 and Old School RuneScape (OSRS). OSRS is the older and more popular version, which is favored by Venezuelan RuneScape players as it is easier to run and does not utilize much data. For the remainder of this story, when we refer to RuneScape, we're speaking about OSRS.] RuneScape was published in 2001 by British developer Jagex, but it is only in the last four years that a growing number of Veneuzelans have begun depending on RuneScape because their chief source of revenue. 1 RuneScape participant is ex-accountant Martinez, who asked that his last name not be printed to protect his RuneScape account. Martinez stopped his job after the bolivar's inflation rate meant he could no longer endure on the money he earned.

"Over time my salary became less than $4 [per month] and I just could not do anything with it, so I decided to try a match my neighbor was telling me to play for money," he writes to Polygon around Discord. RuneScape was a lifeline for both Martinez and his family. He tells Polygon he earned $450 in RuneScape, and used that money to flee Venezuela and proceed to Peru. He continued to play RuneScape and saved an extra $1,000, which he used to receive his mom and girlfriend. "RuneScape is a super mainstream approach to earn money in this day and age," Martinez writes. "Depending on which state in Venezuela you are from, pretty much everybody knows about RuneScape."

It's nothing new, as Venezuela's infrastructure has been not able to function in recent decades, however, it's become more conspicuous. Every Venezuelan RuneScape participant we talked to for this story told us they sell their gold for U.S. dollars or cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, meaning that their hard work isn't compromised by the hyperinflation of the own currency, the Venezuelan bolivar.

They don't fight to locate places to invest the money that they earn, possibly -- a recent study estimated that 54% of transactions in Venezuela last October were completed in U.S. bucks. "I personally know a lot of people who left the country thanks to OSRS and know people hoping to take action," he continues. "I would say that nearly all of the youth that have had the chance to depart the country have done so -- likely either via OSRS or alternative ways.

"Things are getting steadily worse over time. I still have my sister and nephews around -- you can not have a normal job; a huge number of families live off the cash their expats send them." There is an abundance of sites which specialize in selling and the buying of RuneScape merchandise. It's a competitive marketplace, with several sites taking out Ads to appear at the top of search listings.
