Ok, so I'm going to do some number crunching here to give a rough estimate of how much gold was injected into the SC market. This is "best guess" rough round numbers blizz math that makes a lot of assumptions for sure.

1) Rate of duplication:

Let's assume that each account involved was creating and canceling 10 auctions every 10 seconds. Sounds pretty reasonable to me. Each time they duplicated 2B gold. That's 60B per minute or 3.6T per hour.

2) Time spend duplicating:

Let's assume that there was a 6 hour window of time where duplication was possible. Let's also assume that each account duplicating had to spend 50% of this time duplicating, and 50% of the time injecting the counterfeit gold into the economy. That gives us 3 hours of duping.

At this point we have 10.8T duplicated per account (3 hours of duping at 3.6T/hour). Blizzard stated that 415 accounts were involved.

Honestly I think that's a pretty conservative estimate. And it is a lot of gold.

**This would give a grand total of 4482 trillion gold duplicated.**15% of that is 672 trillion.**672 Trillion gold.**Honestly I think that's a pretty conservative estimate. And it is a lot of gold.
