I dont think selling powers would work.
+1. It would completely break Idle's predatory revenue model. Why pay $8.00 for blue widgets when you can instead trade 2 useless extra red widgets for 1 blue widget? Instead, you want players to be in positions of dopamine-deficient frustration where they keep getting dozens upon dozens of red widgets when what they need for that next happy moment in the digital equivalent of an abusive relationship is 1 blue widget, to the point where they give up and exchange the $8 like an addict.
PS: I would like to thank the gambling addicts for buying lottery tickets to fund the education system. Please continue.
