(2) As a reward for completing missions

(3) Buying them from the shop.

(4) By selling shares at a profit.

What are Eaves


What is your share price ?

You start at a share price of 10 eaves.

One aim on Empire.Kred is to increase your share price , this will happen naturally as people buy your shares and connect with you.

Your First Investments

You can buy shares in any Empire,Kred account.

There are many strategies which are discussed in the groups.

I am going to buy my first share and have chose my friend Nance .

I found her by typing Nance in the search box which is on all Empire.Kred pages

This is her profile page

You can see the invest button (1)

Your First Investments


Buying Shares

When you click the invest button , the buy screen is displayed

Buying Shares


How many shares to buy ?

I could invest all my eaves in Nance , all 457,000 of them

That would not be a good idea

I could not then buy shares in anyone else.

When you are starting out I suggest you only buy 5 shares in everyone.

However this is your game – you decide how many – it can be from 1 to 200

Note If you buy shares in existing players , they will probably buy your shares too

So the more people you buy , the more will buy you … and they have lots of eaves to spend


How many shares to buy ?


Say hello

After you buy shares you can leave a short message which will appear on the profile of your buy

You can use this opportunity to make first contact

Please try to keep the message personal and do not try to sell anything to them , you only just got here 🙂

Say hello

Costs Associates with Purchase and Sales of Stock in Empire.Kred #BlogAThon Entry EKB10/11/12

The tenth , 11th and twelfth entries in Blogathon 2015 are from Joseph L Rosenberg CPA from  Florham Park  , a member of Empire.Kred since April 2015




Entry EKB10 Costs Associates with Purchase and Sales of Stock in Empire.Kred

Empire.kred is a virtual stock market game. In this article I will discuss issues associated with the purchase and sale of shares.
A member’s profile at empire.kred starts upon signing up at the site with a share price of 10. Over the next six days only up to 400 shares can be acquired by another player. On the seventh day the 400 share limit is removed and a player can acquire additional shares, also known as a bigger piece of the pie. The acquirer must either pay real money or eaves to increase their limit in 100 share increments up to 5,500 shares. The cost to acquire a bigger piece of the pie increases, too.

You can read the full blog post here 

Entry EKB11 When to Sell Shares on Empire.Kred

Empire.kred is a virtual stock market game . In this article I will discuss when to sell shares.
Some players hardly ever sell. They might be long term players who have amassed hundreds of millions of eaves or even more, and have nowhere to deploy these assets, due to the limit on shares one can own, and the limited number of active players for whom there is an active market. Others have acquired many shares without paying eaves for them, through gift or invest missions by players who offer shares to others to increase the value of their shares in the market.   While there is no prohibition on selling such shares, many in the community frown on individuals selling freely acquired shares. But free players have no way of knowing when they look at their share holdings whether they acquired shares via purchase, gift or investment. Perhaps empire.kred can issue two classes of shares- restricted stock and unrestricted stock. Restricted stock can still earn dividends and be valued at full value ( or even discounted for limits on sale). Consideration can be made to increase the sales commission on restricted shares sold.

You can read the full blog post here 

Entry EKB12 Missions at Empire.Kred

Empire.kred is a virtual stock market game. This article discusses missions on empire.kred.
There are three types of missions.Invest missions enable an individual to offer free shares in their stock. Gift missions enable an individual to offer free eaves that can be used  by the acquirer. The remaining types of missions offer eaves in exchange for doing something, such as visiting someone’s twitter, utube or other social media sites. Sometimes they require people to engage by liking, retweeting or performing other affirmative activity in exchange for eaves.
