Zynga Announces New Virtual Currency Called zCoins

Posted Mar 15, 2011

Zynga has announced a new set of virtual currency options called zCoins. zCoins allows users to redeem rewards across their 10 most popular Facebook games. The currency has nothing to do with Facebook Credits since no real money is being exchanged. The new currency is part of a program called RewardVille. RewardVille gives players zPoints and zCoins to use in CityVille, Mafia Wars, Cafe World, Treasure Isle, YoVille, PetVille, Vampire Wars, FrontierVille, and FarmVille. Users will be awarded the points as they play games. About 80 zPoints or 300 zPoints can be earned in one day. [AllThingsD]
