Zimbabwean Dollar Website of the Day

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Market Movers has nabbed itself 11,000 valuable pixels on the Million Zimbabwean Dollar Homepage, for the bargain price of just $0.41, plus a $0.35 paypal fee. From the FAQ:

8. How long will the site be online?

The site will be online for 5 years guaranteed (at least until 11th February 2013), however the aim is to keep the site online forever (or at least as long as Zimbabwe remains a country).

9. If you’re from the USA, why are you selling the pixels in Zimbabwean dollars?

I think Zimbabean dollars are the closest thing we have to a universal currency on the internet, so it made more sense to do it in Zimbabean dollars. ‘The Million Dollar Homepage’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it!

Also, if I did it in US dollars, it would be way too expensive – US$1 per pixel! Who would pay that??!

10. Are you worried about copy-cats/rip-offs?

No I am not really worried about that at all.
