Popular gaming platform Roblox went public on Wednesday, but what if its $41.9 billion valuation was in Robux?

Gaming platform Roblox went public via a direct listing on Wednesday –– Mario Day for fans of another gaming platform –– earning itself a $41.9 billion valuation after debuting at $64.50 per share.

But we couldn’t help but wonder: What if Roblox’s valuation was in Robux, the platform’s proprietary in-game currency?

Players of Roblox’s games can purchase Robux to personalize their avatars and make other upgrades in the games. Premium memberships are also available for those who want a certain number of Robux to spend during their time on the platform.

According to Roblox’s most recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, 1 Robux is equal to $0.0035. So Roblox is worth 11.97 trillion Robux.

What could you buy in Roblox for 11.97 trillion Robux, you ask? Well, to answer the headline, 5.23 billion zombie attack bunnies*, but here are some other suggestions:
