Ruble Shockingly Worth Less Than Fortnite V-Bucks

Published

on

The Bank of Russia was swiftly prompted to boost its interest rate this week after the ruble fell by 30%, eroding the ruble’s purchasing value and potentially wiping out households’ savings. After Russia’s economy collapsed following its invasion of Ukraine, V-Bucks, the in-game money used in Fortnite, is suddenly worth more than the ruble.

Crashing Down

One ruble is now worth 0.0086 US dollars, whereas one V-Buck is worth about one penny, making Russia’s currency officially worth less than the in-game currency.

Values Rising And…

Rubles, Thousand Rubles

Since Epic Games introduced their battle royal game with the virtual currency, the value of V-Bucks has remained constant all throughout.  Outfits, pickaxes, wraps, emotes, and Battle Passes can all be purchased with the currency, but it cannot be used to buy anything in the real world. And with that, the fact that V-Bucks are worth more than rubles has no real-world ramifications, but the fact that the Russian currency has dropped to the level of a video game currency speaks volumes about the war’s impact.

A video showcasing a future AI-piloted airplane that “wouldn’t ever land” has stunned viewers. Known as the “Sky Cruise,” it was created by Hashem Al-Ghaili and is essentially a floating hotel with 20 nuclear engines and space for 5,000 people.

The Future is Now

According to Al-Ghaili, the aircraft is the “future of transportation,” and traditional airlines will “ferry” people to and from Sky Cruise, which never touches down and even has all repairs done in flight.

How It Came to Be

Although the flying hotel’s debut date has not yet been set, not everyone is a fan of Al-concept. Ghaili’s Al-Ghaili focuses on providing content production, speaking engagements, and digital marketing services. He gave a Ted Talk about the education system in 2018 and how it might be improved.

By

The news that actor and WWE superstar John Cena broke the Make-A-Wish record for granted wishes this week was cause for great celebration. Using his popularity to change the world, the Suicide Squad actor has granted more than 650 wishes for the charity.

Giving Back

To put that into perspective, Hulk Hogan of the WWE, Dale Earnhardt Jr. of NASCAR, and Jeff Gordon have all granted more than 200 wishes each, but nobody besides Cena has ever surpassed 300.

Doing More

Fans praised his commitment to aiding the American non-profit after he announced the milestone online. Cena has already discussed how his involvement with the organization began thanks to WWE.

According to him, he was sort of shifted during my first Make-A-Wish since the person preferred to meet another celebrity rather than me. However, the WWE does an excellent job of mentioning that there is a Make-A-Wish child present. Do you mind if I say hello? I told them, “If you ever need me for this ever, I don’t care what I’m doing, I will drop what I’m doing and be involved because I think that’s the coolest thing.”

An Australian guy was seen on camera using nothing more than a frying pan to repel this large crocodile. Without breaking a sweat, Kai Hansen of Darwin struck resident saltwater crocodile Fred on the snout when he lunged in his direction.

For Some Time

Hansen, who owns Goat Island Lodge on the banks of the Adelaide River, lives there with Casey, the female crocodile he loves so much, whom Fred has been bugging ever since he recently showed up.

As Scary As it Gets

The Australian Backpacker’s Guide claims that saltwater crocodiles, which can grow to a stunning seven meters in length, are the more aggressive of the two varieties of crocodiles found in Australia (the other being freshwater crocodiles).
