The implemenation of  new hypergriding option went smoothly and now avatars from all grids can buy and sell their products in this nice place. Visiting Little Breath will surely not be a waste of your time!


It is a next milestone in our history. We have implemented and tested  hypergrid transactions and you do not need to be a resident of a virtual world to buy, sell or transfer coins. You can be a hypergrid visitor and have possiblity to use our service as a native avatar. Virtual world owners need to make a small change in their grid software and we will do the rest. Do not hesitate to contact us for more details! 

We recommmend reading Maria Korolov article regarding this case.


Aviworlds, the grid listed in the chart of top 25 most active virtual worlds, decided to switch from Gloebit to Podex.

Update regarding Podex system failure. Good news! Our IT team managed to restore Podex system and all avatars can buy, sell and transfer coins as before.  

Podex service temporary failure
We are sorry to inform you that our services are temporarily suspended. It is caused by the big fire that destroyed some of OVH servers where our data was stored. We are still waiting when they restore it from back-ups. It can take some time so be patient please and give your real life a chance. 

You can follow the progress of work at Octavia Klaba's Twitter

 We are sorry to inform all our customers that we are not able to process cashouts from A51 WORLD grid at the moment. Please contact us if you have already made transfer to us and your coins are not returned to your account.

We made some minor changes to our Privacy Policy. As our business principle has always been to collect as little information as possible we did not have a lot of work to comply to new GDPR regulations. Changes mainly concerned your "right to be forgotten" and data transfer to a third party on your request.
Good news for all avatars. Transfers of coins between grids are free of charge since today. You can easily use your funds in every grid served by Podex Exchange.

We are sorry to inform that we stopped proceeding the exchange of coins from grids supported by Podex into Inworldz currency. Since now, the only way to obtain Inworldz coins is to pay for them by Paypal or wire transfers. 

Good news for Genesis avatars. The owners decided to reopen it as Genesis Metaverse and asked us to cooperate with them again. Of course we happily agreed and now you can buy and sell Genesis Metaverse currency and exchange it for currencies of other grids. The Welcome Area is one of the most astonishing I have ever seen!

After careful consideration of our customers wishes we decided to implement features which should simplify all trading processes.
The main differences are in the way of purchasing coins, where the transaction is initiated in a grid, not on Podex web page and in the affiliate objects, which do not need any activation and can be distributed freely now.
