After trying to beat the gold farmers in the past a few years, jagex now will introduce Runescape Bonds which will be a new item in game as the new business model.

Jagex Mark posted a video to the RS website detailing the MMO's new business model. The clip, which runs a bit over three minutes in length, focuses on Jagex's efforts to eradicate goldfarmers from the long-running browser-based title. Gerhard mentions that the firm has removed over uncountable GP from goldfarmer accounts and banned more than one million bot accounts this year

RuneScape Bonds are in-game items that allow you to pay for selected account-related and out-of-game benefits with in-game resources. RuneScape Bonds are initially purchased just as you would purchase membership, but they can then be freely gifted or traded with other players. They can be redeemed for membership, Squeal of Fortune tickets, runecoins and tickets for RuneFest, and we plan to offer the option to purchase items from the Jagex Store in the future.

Mark said that 40 to 50 percent of the game's active players buy runescape gold on any given month! The solution to what is clearly a thorn in Jagex's side is something called RuneScape bonds. Bonds are a tradeable membership item that can freely gifted or traded for any other tradeable in-game item. As a result, players will be able to pay for their game memberships via in-game wealth and gold farmers will theoretically have no customers.
