Goldminecraft: Lovely Notch Is Lovely & Rich

So sez the money-minded onlooker, anyway, though I imagine there’s some room for adjustment.

According to one-man Minecraft wonder-king Notch, he’s currently selling a Minecraft account every three seconds. Which in itself is about the greatest “that’ll show you, creators of identical, soulless brown-grey games about shooting soldiers” I can imagine, but on top of that it means he’s earning $13.30 a second. Or $15,000 an hour, Texyt calculate. Or, $300- 350,000 a day.

A day. A day. A day. A day. A day. A day. A day.

Quick calculation of lifetime earnings, based on the number of purchasers listed here: he’s earned $3,554,638 from Minecraft to date. But add $13.30 a second to that.

First up: congratulations, sir, you totally deserve it. That neither the ‘but it looks kinda crude!” sentiment or the slight ‘oh, it’s what all those achingly hip young Twit-witterers are on about so I’m not going to play it out of spite’ backlash have harmed his fortunes is wonderful. It’s an incredible game, and we keep on posting about it here with good reason.

Secondly: it’s very unlikely to sustain those kind of levels (which hit a high of around 26,000 in a single day) for that much longer, so he’s probably not going to be buying more than one island. However, the price is going up to $15 once the current alpha version becomes beta, so he’s got a fair whack of cash yet to come.

A day. A day. A day. A day.
