What is real money money trading (RMT), in the case of this Glee, cashing by selling items such as items on Glee's social game, such as rare cards on social games.
Actually in February 2012 this RMT also evolved into a massive problem as follows.

The simple background is as follows.

I exposed the card growth method with this thread!

GREE stops trade
As a result, it was discovered that Gory was doing things that exceeded the level of RMT so far, such as rushing 30 million yen in five months, although it was nominally "free game", but in reality Tens of thousands of yen, or hundreds of thousands of yen is necessary to get the rare card, so if you sell one rare card with tens of thousands of yen using internet auction etc., people who buy it As a result, RMT was established as a result.
However, as it has become such a situation, I no longer feel overlooked by Glee, and finally today I announced that I began to take a step back and started countermeasures.

In addition, in order to further thoroughly ban the RMT-related acts, we will continue to study seriously with the whole company, and from time to time we will implement necessary and appropriate measures as soon as possible.
The point is "In order to further thoroughly prohibit RMT related activities, we strongly request to RMT experts who operate the site for conducting RMT related activities outside "GREE" to stop and delete exhibition again, On March 29, 2012, we suspended sales of all characters, items, cards, in-game virtual currency etc. provided through "GREE" to 17 business enterprises in total, and related data I requested to delete completely from the site and the server in writing etc.That is the point.
Why is it so strict about RMT so far because of the report as follows?

Meanwhile, at the same securities, we reviewed the target stock price and ratings of social game companies. Although it regarded as "social game = online game" as before, it says that it was caught as "social game ≒ pachinko". The reason is that the incentive to hit the big money from the expectation of RMT works, the fact that it is a change of the same system, paying gacha is similar to pachinko in enjoying the probability of a big hit.
In other words, RMT is a pachinko3 store systemIt is similar to the fact that money is being cashed in the same way, the mechanism that fucking shoes at Paid Gacha looks exactly like a pachinko, and in addition to diverting the same system so that it is commonly seen especially in card games etc., Because it is similar to pachinko, it is caught from authorities as de facto "like pachinko" (illegal except for pachinko in the three store format), additionally because it is top in the industry now in the industry , I got extra attention.
In addition, since it is said that "further prohibition of RMT-related acts" will continue in future, it may be putting out more fundamental countermeasures.
