As per MindArk's [[:File:Annual report 2006.pdf|Annual Report 2006]] the number of shares at that time was 11.463.500 and the equity per share was 3,72 [[wikipedia:Swedish_krona| kr]]. Considering Marco Behrmann and Golden Shadow pictures who are both listed holding 0.36% and Marco Behrmann held 41.500 shares (as per MindArk's [[:File:Annual report 2006.pdf|Annual Report 2006]]) one should assume Golden Shadow Pictures held 41.500 shares (=~0.3621%) too. With the given equity per share of 3.72 [[wikipedia:Swedish_krona| kr]] the amount of 41.500 shares had a value of 154.380 [[wikipedia:Swedish_krona| kr]] or with a exchange rate of 6.8725 on 29 Dec 2006 a value of 22.463,44 [[wikipedia:United_States_dollar|USD]].

===Space Pirates Controversy 2008===
 
In 2008 Jon Jacobs started promoting "Space Pirates" as a treasure hunt event in which participants would be able to loot items with total value of 5 Million USD. Trying to sound official the promotion was linked to his personal website.

It turned out later that the promotion was purely based on assumptions about EU's future development, most of which never became true:
 
 
* NEVERDIE: "'Space Pirates' is the name I have Created for the Event that is Entropia's Expansion into Space and Upgrade to CryEngine2...<br />If U take a look at the Space Pirates marketing materials they point to my NEVERDIE.com portal. If U read the Copy of the Event You will see that the treasure I'm referring to are new items that will be dropping to support the expansion into Space.. We all know that those items will be extremely valuable if they are balanced in the way that the first items discovered on calypso were balanced. (The General public doesnt know or even understand any of that, to make it simple I have used the term treasure hunt)"
 
* NEVERDIE: "I put the Space pirates event together based upon Public information.<br /><br />If You Read the China Release it states that the upcoming planets will cause the opening of Space. As far as pirates are concerned Since we first Purchased hangars 4 years ago we have been expecting Pirates and other Space mobs..<br />(the ships have Guns!!!)<br /><br />If you Read The Entropian you will see A quote from jan Welter talking about full Space Flight and shipping between Planets coming soon, (last year???)<br /><br />I wrote my materials based on public knowledge, I Simply ran the copy that i wrote By MA and confirmed that it would be a Technological Revolution akin to the launch of Calypso...<br /><br />I own an Asteroid a private SPACE based Portal in Entropia, it is a Private Business that I Have the Right to market to the general Public... (from a marketing standpoint i have a business relationship with MA)"

The fact that Jon Jacobs is a Planet Owner ([[About _ROCKtropia|ROCKtropia]]) and Developer ([[About _ROCKtropia|ROCKtropia]], [[About_Next_Island|Next Island]]) and as well a regular participants owning in-game property and engaging in regular end user activities bears a conflict of interest.
