Why did RBX.Place shut down?

RBX.Place gave Roblox users the opportunity to buy in-game products, however, the platform was forced to shut down as Roblox allegedly wanted to sue the creator.

Roblox is an online gaming platform and creation system developed by Roblox Corporation. It gives users the opportunity to programme games and play games created by other users.

An unknown user created RBX.Place, which featured a platform where users could buy in-game products for an inexpensive price. The website offered players the chance to earn any limited products that are no longer available in-game. When the payment has been made, the item is then immediately transferred into the buyer’s Roblox account.

RBX.Place is reportedly a safe platform to buy in-game products. Thousands of Roblox players have used the platform and it is assumed that all of them had a pleasant experience with the site, as none of them have stated that they were ever scammed thus far.

However, on Tuesday, 22 June 2021, RBX. Place announced on its Discord channel, that it will shut down the website, which functioned as an online shop. RBX.Place gave users eight days, until 30 June 2021, to withdraw their products from the website.

RBX.Place was forced to shut down as Roblox allegedly wanted to sue the creator. Users can no longer access the RBX.Place website as it has been removed.
