There are already two intergalactic mining servers operating, one using XNova Redesigned codebase (and thus bereft of combat capabilities) and one based on 2Moons (and thus seeming to be fully operational and featuring several more-advanced ship types than XNova and a whole bunch more features you can access using "Darkmatter" which is kind of the internal currency but also can be found in the game).
However, both of these existing servers are part of a larger multiverse which aims to have a whole working economy and thus cannot readily just hand out free intergalactic mining startup equipment and planets to mine on to every random idle passer-by, most of whom never stick around long enough to have any chance of creating a profit for who-ever invested in equipping them for their startup.
Thus, a separate new 2moons server has now been set up at TwoMoons.MyGamesOnline.org which caters to this largely-useless crowd of random passers-by by handing out complete intergalactic mining startup sites, technology and equipment to all comers.
Obviously that is a crazy thing to do for any intergalactic investors looking for actual profit, thus this server is not economically related to the larger game. It aims, rather, to serve as an elimination funnel where all the idlers can sit and idle without bankrupting the real larger-game economy by having investors invest in useless, unqualified people / corporations / CEOs.
Hopefully in the long run it will find for us some real players who will be worthwhile executive officers for operations located in the "real larger game" multiverse where investing in such startups is a non-trivial investment.
It will also serve to give people a chance to try out the 2moons system, get acquainted with what can be done in there, and maybe make some cryptocoins selling stuff in game to new players in the process of introducing them to your favourite cryptocoin(s).
As you play, bear in mind that in the "real" aka "larger game" multiverse, starting up such a mining operation will not be cheap, at least not cheap as compared to the paltry pittance you could acquire by foraging for berries to eat, wood to build huts and clubs with, ore to make metal implements with and so on as in individual character or bunch of individual characters on a single-character scale. The kinds of salaries CEOs of intergalactic mining corporations earn could probably hire gosh knows how many planetbound scavenger types who run around on planets foraging and fighting and crawling around in sewers killing monsters and so on, but to prove you are qualified for such a position this new server could prove useful. Think of it, perhaps, as a simulated CEO position/course your character could be taking somewhere in the process of learning the skills such a CEO will be needing to get such a job in "the real game"...

Many cryptocoins accepted,,, basically all those that I support in my Open Transactions server, plus LiteCoins whose contract didn't quite make it into that server before the last Open Transactions upgrade/fixes cycle.
