There are hundreds of thousands of people who work in the industry, making an average of $142 per month for these employees.

This shows that many companies are making big money off of online gold farming.

Prof. Richard Heeks, the leader of the study, said it is hard to estimate the industry.

It could be twice as big as reported.
