Aurum (AUR) is a currency used by capsuleers when they wish to make payments off the record and outside of the standard DED ISK infrastructure. Aurum has recently become the sole currency accepted by the New Eden Store for their goods and services.
You can see your Aurum balance in your in wallet as shown below.
Receiving Aurum: At The New Eden StoreAurum is created by converting a PLEX at the New Eden Store.
Each PLEX gives you 3500 Aurum that you can also spend in the New Eden Store. Multiple PLEX's can be also converted at the same time.
The exchange will then be logged in your wallet. Note that Aurum cannot be converted directly back to PLEX.
You can spend Aurum in the New Eden Store in order to accessorise your character.
Initially, you will not be able to transfer Aurum to other players. This is part of our initial security procedures rather than part of our design for this system. Once well established, you will be able to transfer Aurum to other players. You can also, or sell your New Eden Store goods on the market for ISK.
Items sold in the New Eden Store are listed on the market, even before they become available for sale in the store. This means you can visit the store and preview the upcoming goods.
