Casper customers have no insight into the real-life health of Casper Warden, nor do we know the financial state of the SL part of CasperTech. Some of the best people and companies in SL have left SL for one or both reasons. Some have gotten old, sick, or financially what they sold in SL compared to the time they had to spend on what they were selling was just not worth that time anymore. We don't know. We know that Linden Research is a company capable of blowing maybe fifty million dollars on Sansar and yet still able to have a company worth buying by an investment company who cared to see SL continue. They think SL has value. As a resident of SL, I'm lucky my SL experience got to continue after such a massive Sansar blunder because most companies would have failed after that. So the widely deployed CasperVend and CasperLet systems will continue. For all of us Casper customers that is a far better outcome than having the Andy Enfield experience of selling Hippo Tech only to watch it crumble and die. Congratulations Casper!


Many have been moving away from it, too much downtime & bugs, maybe now it can be linked to the marketplace.


I hope Casper made bank!


It means LL is going to take as big a percentage on inworld sales as they do on MP sales. They want a cut of Lelutka, Maitreya and others, that don’t sell they main moneymakers on the MP but only inworld with help of CV, plus all the event sales. It’s a huge financial win for LL.


Not a surprise! I have told other slers other example over years — Firestorm viewer. It will be fatal to SL if Firestorm do not existing anymore. We will call it SL Disaster 3.0.
