Why?

What should the max cash be then?


So players don't have to rely on other sites or word of mouth on thinking the value of tradable rares. Also we are in a 64-bit computing age, and 32-bit is starting to be phased out.


New max cash would be ........

This logic is being incorrectly applied. 32-bit vs. 64-bit computing is how many bits are
processed
at a time - the max cash number is dictated by how much
storage space
is allocated to the variable.

The max cash limit only really applies to a ridiculously small proportion of the gaming population, however an update to increase this would be MASSIVE - first there is storage, having to increase the account save size for every account ever created, and secondly it would increase load times as there is more data needing to be sent to the client from the servers before a player can finish logging in.
Ooh, a light at the end of the tunnel...
...Do you think I should get off the tracks?

What's wrong with spirit shards

Their prices fluctuate, and even a small fluctuation could translate to a massive loss for those that have a large amount of spirit shards.
