Now, I was just thinking about this the other day and I was wondering, do you think it'll be possible to find an algorithm to play the stock market? I don't mean a cheat code to never make your stocks drop or anything but like a math formula you could use to basically ensure the same result as something like that. I just wonder that someone would eventually find a way to cheat the in-game market in some way which could end up horribly if GTA Online is said to be a more or less a 1:1 of the single player but in persistent multiplayer setting.
Now, I know this probably won't happen right away but I'd imagine that Rockstar has plans to allow us to contribute to the in-game economy by investing in and possibly creating our businesses. But if a player were to find out how to game the market, I'd imagine that could potentially be worse than a hack because those who do can be found out and banned. But if the game contains a legit way to cheat the market then everyone will be a billionaire within a few months and the finer things money can buy would seem commonplace.
What's your opinion? I totally get that I could be overreacting but GTA V isn't the first and won't be the last game to try to build a functioning economy and games' economies have been exploited before/
