Some quotes from Joystiq


Additionally, the player-driven marketplace so popular in CCP's other big MMO, EVE Online, will also be made available to Dust 514 folks,

... but then ...


To CCP, the free flow of the two marketplaces will keep the user base from splitting into two separate factions. "It avoids the buy/win problem that some microtransaction-based games have.

TBH I can't tell whether this means one marketplace with Eve players selling directly to Dust players, or two marketplaces but with some form of interaction?



"I wouldn't be surprised if we get quite a few EVE players that join Dust but actually don't play Dust at all, they're just on the market speculating ... and they never go into a match,"

Don't like to engage in pointless speculations about what will happen, as that sort of thing seems to almost inevitably devolve into the usual forum 'sky falling down' panicky nay-saying. However, I do remember mention at one point of Eve pilots buying equipment like vehicles etc to give to the mercs they hire in DUST. So that probably suggests that DUST items will be on the same marketplace we already use in Eve.

To my understanding its a separate market but operates similar to Eve. So the last quote is about people who like doing market manipulation, margin trading, etc.

DUST 514 // About

ISK earned in battle can be spent on the primary market to stock up on the latest items weapons, turrets, equipment, armor, and modules or search for bargains on the secondary player-driven market. Customize existing gear or purchase advanced and prototype weaponry and equipment for that extra edge on the battlefield.

Most likely it is the primary market that DUST shares with EVE, they will simply add a "Planetary Assault" category like they did with the "Apparel" and the secondary market is the "Pay to win" market used solely by DUST players.

I'm speculating obviously but this seems to be the most logical way of implementation based on the information given.
