Back in February 2012 – life in High-Sec got boring running Level 4 missions – I stumbled over a report from Nurge84 (https://www.eveger.de/forum/showthread.php?47206-Experiment-Leben-im-Low-Sec). He wrote about his experience living in low security space.
That article finally gave me the inertia to do what I had been thinking about the one or a lot more sleepness nights in bed: Live in Low-Sec and seed an own market hub by building it from scratch.
So I put some money to an extra corp acount only dedicated to the Low-Sec market hub. Starting with 100.000.000 ISK. Not much, but enough for the experiment. I planned producing all at the market hub by myself. So I set out to buy some BPO. As I am a Minmatar fan, I concentrated on buying the Minmatar frigate BPOs, the small projectile weapon BPO, the small projectile ammunition BPOs. The plan was to first sell Tech 1 stuff and then add in Tech 2 stiff where it fits.
The shop opened up in March 2012 and is still running. Till now I never regretted doing it.
Cash is coming slowly but steady.
