Behind the word "RCE MMO" lies the term "Real Cash Economy Massive Multiplayer Online". What this means is that every item inside Entropia Universe has a real life value. Every bullet you fire has a value, every ingot of iron you pull from the ground has a real life value and every piece of clothing you wear has a real life value.
This also means that even though Entropia Universe is free to play, almost any action you take inside Entropia Universe will have a real life price tag attached.
Prices on items inside Entropia Universe range from half a cent (USD) to several thousands of dollars... As a newcomer to Entropia Universe you will not need to purchase anything for a long time. You can simply explore the universe, take jobs that do not require you to own anything or help other people doing their quests and earn money this way. Then you can start purchasing the items you need to advance your avatar.
Once you have acquired a few items (armor, weapons, various tools) you can take on quests of your own. This is where the fun begins. If you excel in your quests you can actually make more money from questing that it costs to take the quests (ammo costs money remember). If you get really good at taking quests and know when to do what inside Entropia Universe, you can earn a lot of money. Do you have what it takes?
