Robux which is stylized as R$ is the name of the sole universal currency on Roblox. This one was introduced on May 14, 2007 as the replacement of Roblox Points which was one of the two currencies on the biggest platform to play games alongside Tix (which has been removed on April 14, 2016.
The currency named Robux is named as the primary currency of Roblox by the community and staff. for your information, all paid items created by Roblox within the Roblox Catalog are sold for Robux and user created content such as microtransactions and gamepasses also follow the same rule. The name of Robux itself is the portmanteau of Roblox and “bucks” (bux).
Have you ever wondered how much does 400 Robux cost? As displayed on the official page of Robux Wiki, 400 Robyx costs $4.95. By spending that amount, you will be able to get 50 Robux more as the Robux bonus. This one is exclusive for the members of Builders Club only. For those the user of Window 10 app, it seems like you have to seek for another way as this one is not available through the Roblox Windows 10 app.
For every player of Roblox outside of the United States, the prices are displayed as the currency equivalents of the country. However, you have to take a note that the exchange rated are not fully taken into account by Roblox when buying directly from the official website of Roblox.
Talking about Robux, the value of this currency has decreased since its initial release. A Roblox Blog article once declared Miked as the wealthiest Roblox player with just 3,297 Robux. in this era, a lot of users have upwards of 40,000 Robux in their accounts without being considered as wealthy by the community of Roblox. This one can happen die to the fact that the new Robux is generated each time the user gets the daily stipend from the Builders Club membership or purchases it directly from Roblox which in turn contributes to the inflation of the currency.
Furthermore, the current theories about the dramatic shift in Roblox value are embedded in the idea of supply and demand. The two things called supply and demand are typically inversely related and the balance of two of them establish the equilibrium price. For instance, by selling the most of the items in the Roblox Catalog and incentiving users to exchange Robux for real life currency through the Developer’s Exchange, the demand for this official currency of Roblox has increased. Apparently, the increase in demand compared to the minimal increase in the supply of Robux creates the deficit of Robux.
According to a thing called the Developer’s Exchange, 400 Robux is equals to $1. As the contrary, the 2013 blog post announced that one Roux is equal to one penny. There is such a difference when you compare this main currency of Roblox from time to time. This is very interesting to follow.
