On CSX, (virtual) shares of Cricketers (called Player Stocks) and Teams (called Team Stocks) are listed, allowing users to trade those shares. The movement in ‘stock prices’ of cricketers and teams changes during matches to reflect their performance on field and how cricket fans expect their performance to be in future e.g. fall in stock price of a cricketer might indicate that the cricketer is not performing well of late, and fans don’t expect him to return to form as well in near future and based on an algorithm developed by 'It's alive', a technology and design based business solutions start-up.
CSX uses virtual money called CSX$ for all trading purpose, and there is no exchange of real money involved at any stage of the game.
Basics of the game
The CSX has three different stock exchanges for ODI, Tests and T20's and player's are listed and de-listed based on upcoming tournaments.
The registered users of the websites, also called the traders, can gain (or lose) money by selling the shares of the cricketers at higher (or lower) price than purchase price of those shares.
