Hello Roblox Creator Community,
It’s been a big year for Roblox, but it’s been an even bigger year for the creator community. There are so many amazing ways you all have contributed to the Roblox ecosystem -- from clothing designers to development studios it’s never been a better time to be a part of Roblox. And with the huge increase in Roblox’s popularity, we have also looked to you with increased expectations in terms of security and safety. These issue are at the core of Roblox principles and we appreciate everyones patience and dedication
We want to thank you for all the great work you’ve done and better reward you for all the great work you will do!. Starting today (March 1st, 2017), the Robux exchange rate will be increasing from $.0025/R$ to $.0035/R$ for all Robux earned today and everyday thereafter. That is a 40% increase in the value of Robux you earn and good news for all contributors to the Roblox economy. Buying Robux will continue at its current value; this only impacts exchanging Robux back to real currency through the DevEx program.
In addition to the increase in the value of Robux, we are also doubling the current exchange limit using DevEx from 20 million to 40 million to accommodate the increase in traffic. This means that the monthly exchange limit is now 40 million Robux, or $140,000 USD per DevEx. If you DevEx the maximum amount each month, that's $1,680,000 USD a year (and yes, some developers are already there). We hope this encourages everyone to innovate and develop even more creative and inspiring creations.
What this means for you?
- Any Robux earned starting today will be exchanged at the new rate (for 40% more USD) when utilizing DevEx.
- Developers with a current balance will have DevEx funds pulled from their account at the old rate until all previous Robux are cleared. Your current balance is based on a snapshot of your current Robux balances as of this change. All DevEx requests up to the amount we have in the snapshot will be exchanged at the old rate of $.0025/R$.
- Spending your current Robux balances on games, hats or other cool stuff will not get you to the higher exchange rate faster.
