The sale of items within video games is something that has already become common, generating a lot of money for players when it comes to virtually auctioning off an object obtained in a popular title, although there are also those who earn incredible amounts every month, selling accounts, which level up themselves, making the money they get, they earn it right, playing.

Something that Javier Collado, a 26-year-old Spanish Fortnite player, does by taking this practice to another level, being a real business that gives him a salary that ranges “between 1,200 and 1,500 euros per month”, as he himself comments in a profile published on the site El País.
In the report, he indicates that he has been playing video games “all his life” and that among many of the friends he made virtually in these games, it was one that taught him about the possibility of making his fun profitable, creating accounts, playing in them leveling them up and then selling them, indicating that currently, he has already sold more than a thousand.
“Games are competitive systems, you go up and down levels, there are people who want to avoid the time that has to be invested in the first levels or others who, with years of competitive experience, get stuck at one level and want to go up another way”, He says.
Javier says that he started with an account, in which he spent playing “from morning to night” and a week later, he had it ready for sale. Mechanics that he kept repeating, until he has reached the level where, in his best months, he earns up to $3,000 euros.

And although he does not see it as a business, since with this he pays for his aviation studies and completes the flight hours he needs to be a commercial pilot, Collado has a tax advisor, makes his declaration and pays his taxes, despite the fact that he does not no expense can be deducted, as your account providers do not bill you.
