So I think if something like this were done it should be for people that are taking part in vBetting.
I definitely like Joes idea but I don't think it would be practical to separate between active betters and others. The good thing about Joe's proposed "merchandise" is that noone can "empty the shop" for them.
I have no idea what would be required technically, though, it might be difficult to implement.
