    Hey guys;

    When I go purchase proxies to use, I always see the big companies (SLLPrivateProxies, for example) selling "Ticketmaster" and "Sneakers" Proxies.

    What exactly you fuckwits do with Ticketmaster and Sneakers?

    Yeah, I do understand that Ticketmaster is a website that sells concert tickets. Why do anyone need to use a proxy to purchase tickets?

    And I also know that "Sneakers" are a kind of shoes. But well? What exactly that means? That I can use sneakers while using those proxies? -_-


    Thanks

    People stock shoes to sell them with a markup later??
    And that's big enough that there are Proxies fully dedicated to be used to buy multiple shoes?

    Americans are funny.

    You can of course use sneakers or just sit fully nude in front of your machine, it doesn't make a difference. lol

    As phatzilla summed it up, there are limited edition shoes/sneakers, what you can't get nowadays, unless you have a bot and people uses those proxies for this purpose on Nike.com etc. There are people out there, so called hypebeasts, who pay 2x-3x retail price for a pair of sneakers, if they can't get it otherwise and they can't, because those people with the bots bought all of them. :)
    It works for the same analogy with Ticketmaster, just not with shoes, but tickets.

    Americans can be funny, but they also like to make easy money, can it be more easier than this?!
    Also, it's not just for US people. If you have a bot, proxies and some capital, maybe some insight about what can be sold for 2x-3x retail price, you can do it too.

    Americans are funny because only in the USA there are those "hypebeasts" that pay 2x-3x the retail price for a pair of limited edition sneakers. Americans have this "limited edition" culture and that's why those manufactured and replicable items (baseball cards, sneakers...) reach those prices.

    I mean, if I went online here in Brazil to purchase a "Limited Edition Sneaker" and purchased the whole stock, the brand would just put more to sell next month and "renew the limited edition"... or no one would pay 2x the retail price for a Nike when you can go to a Nike Store and purchase 2 other sneakers as pretty and confortable as the "limited edition" one...


    And regarding tickets: purchasing Tickets (concerts, sport events) and reselling them is a crime here in Brazil, so one can only do that in small-scale and through non-official means...you can't create a Classified Ads or a Listing on Ebay to sell that, for example.
    I really thought that it was a crime all over the world, not only here.


    Well, living and learning :D Thanks guys!

    Scalping is illegal everywhere i think, but you can still get away with it if you're smart...like anything else.

    But yeah, everyone hates those motherfuckers.


    re: limited edition sneakers... What else are you gonna do with extra money when you have no real life problems? just spend it on useless shit to impress your useless peers. This is what keeps many economies alive.
