A Genshin Impact player has made waves in the gaming community by offering their account, which boasts the rarest User Identification Number (UID), for a staggering $1 million.
Genshin Impact, a popular action role-playing game, has a vibrant community where players often experience rare events, such as acquiring 5-star characters quickly or obtaining artifacts with top-tier stats. However, this recent Twitter post by Tenha, a well-known content creator, has taken rarity to a new level.
A One-in-a-Billion UID
At first glance, the account in question seems like any other. However, a closer look reveals a unique nine-digit UID that consists entirely of the number “8”.
This makes the account extraordinarily rare, as the chance of such a UID occurring is virtually nonexistent. In Chinese culture, the number “8” is associated with wealth and luck, which adds to the account’s appeal.
A Million-Dollar Price Tag
Seizing the opportunity, the account owner has listed their Genshin Impact account for sale at a whopping $1 million. The account’s UID, 888888888, is not only unique but also considered extremely lucky due to the significance of the number “8” in Chinese culture.
Despite the account owner being of Korean origin, they seem to be banking on this unusual coincidence to attract potential buyers.
Community Reactions and Legal Implications
The Genshin Impact community typically values accounts with rare characters, weapons, and constellations, which may affect the likelihood of this account being sold. Additionally, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or other tax authorities could potentially intervene if the account is sold for the listed price.
It’s also important to note that buying and selling accounts is against HoYoverse’s Terms of Service and could result in a permanent ban.
Players can view their Genshin Impact UID by opening the Paimon Menu located at the bottom right corner of the screen. The nine-digit code appears below the account name and avatar.
