In the land of Gielinor, players can trade items--mithril longswords, yak-hide armor, herbs harvested from herbiboars--and gold, the in-game currency. Eventually, players began exchanging in-game gold with actual dollars, a process referred to as real-world trading. Jagex is the game's developer restricts exchanges like this.

Jacob Reed, the most well-known creator of YouTube videos on RuneScape known as Crumb wrote within an email message to me.
