...and more people buy dubs from them instead of the exchange, then OOO would want to drive the exchange rate up.

Every single dub on the exchange has previously been bought from OOO for cash. Every single one of them. The dub exchange does not bring new dubs into the game, it only transfers them between players.

Yes, that is obviously true. That doesn't mean that the exchange rate doesn't have an impact on how many dubs are sunk. When the exchange rate goes up, people have a choice of either paying the price, buying from OOO instead, or reducing the amount of stuff they do that sinks dubs. When the exchange rate is high, it is easy for people to say "meh, I'm not going to get another portrait", the amount of dubs a player consumes does not have to be not constant.

I'm still of two minds about the gold boxes-- but thank you for the boosted doubloon sale; hopefully it will bring market prices down a bit.

I'm still of the opinion that having a dual 25,000 Poe OR 12 doubloons would be a nice way to go for future runs of this promotion.
