What is Second Life Capital Exchange (CapEx)?

Capital Exchange is a Stock Market Simulation Game operating adjacent to Second Life(tm). Our website provides a platform for trading stocks of virtual companies conducting business within Second Life. Second Life is a trademark of Linden Lab. The website and its affiliates are not part of Linden Lab. By depositing Lindens in the CapEx ATM or using the website, you agree to all the policies and terms of service listed.

What is done at CapEx?

Virtual companies within Second Life need Lindens to operate. Sometimes they dont have enough Lindens of their own to get started. Many seek Lindens from avatars like you within Second Life by offering a share of their virtual company through the purchase of virtual stock. You can buy shares, sell shares - even get dividends from companies that pay them. Like real life, you have to do some research into what companies you are investing in - some companies are better than others. Start building your own Second Life financial empire today!
