Was having a conversation with a friend who just started the game, and had a few disagreeing opinions on how much gold is considered 'rich' which led to questions on how much is a good amount to make in a day, etc. Appreciate your inputs and see what the community thinks.

KEEP IN MIND THIS IS FOR THE AVERAGE PLAYER, not YOU SPECIFICALLY.

I voted 100+ mils for the average  and 1-25 for the hardcore player, just to mess with your poll.

You are welcome!

Assuming the average player isn't new and has some CP, I'd put the average amount at 26-50 million thanks to imperial alchemy/cooking, gathering, fishing and grinding. Training and crates require a lot more input so I wouldn't say the average player can use them. As for a hardcore player? 76-100 million is easily achievable per day and I'm sure they could hit 100 million a day, though it wouldn't be sustainable for longer than a few weeks.

Only a part of the population is actually efficiently working on making money on a daily basis. So I think the average is actually low, despite some players earning a lot.

There is not rich in bdo. There is little to buy if you have trillions or billions. No difference.

Voted 76-100mil for the average player, but this is a bit biased and will not provide any real data. Here's why.

A casual player early in his BDO adventure will never reach 75mil per day in a few hours (even though that's close to doable if the only thing you do is run relics, 12mil/h after Value Pack, more if you don't sell).

Thing is, the level 60, lifeskill oriented player that has roughly 60 workers working will easily blast that 75mil breakpoint via daily gathering, daily imperial, daily AFK processing, occasional crafting (Traces of Savagery crafting, Powder of Earth/Trace of Ascencion into outfits, Jewelry Crates batch, etc.), and all that in 5h of active playtime with little to no grinding.

There is not rich in bdo. There is little to buy if you have trillions or billions. No difference.

I will gladly say you're mistaken here. Having billions readily available offers you cheaper way of getting your accessories and even PEN attempts.

Let's look at PEN Dandelion : Once you have acceptable stacks (105-120), using Cron Stones to cover your PEN attempts starts becoming a viable way of attempting PEN. Cost : 1350-1450 Cron Stones = 1.35-1.45bil. If you want to spare money, you wait for TETs to hit the market and hope you get them through snipe pre-orders or bidding. With that in mind, not many people who have enough to blast on TET weapons are online at the same time which means less competition = higher chances of winning the bid.

Now, you click for PEN on your marketplace-bought TET weapon. You fail. You get : 6 stacks, a TRI weapon that needs repairing. Repair it for cheap, sell it back on the market, and the PEN attempt only cost you ~950mil AND you won stacks. Roughly 30-35% cheaper than using Cron Stones (which is a very reliable way of going for PEN weapons if you don't want to waste time running relics, gathering and enchanting back to TET).

All in all, having billions readily available = a way to save billions longterm.

Theres a difference between making money and playing the game. An average player might just log in, grind an hour, rbf an hour, poke around the arena, dump some energy somewhere, put on afk fishing and go-to sleep.

That a who lot of no money. At most 10mil+auto funds which is like another 5 if any. Heck some players just mess around in the arena for a day and log out which is almost zero money.

I make around 6-10mil a day, with around 3-4hrs play.  Depends on what farm spot I do in the morning, this allows me to stack my auction house for when I'm not on line.  I'll come back from work and will have somewhere between 10-20 sales, so thats around the 2-3 mil mark, and will re-stock at least twice in the evening, getting me another 4-5mil.  So all that plus loot drops, hand ins etc I will get around 10mil a day.  Then a couple of times a week I'll drop Grunil Armour onto the market, mainly over the weekend and make an additional 10-15mil a day.  I don't afk at all really, unless I'm processing, so will minimise and watch TV or do something else.  But no overnight AFK or when I'm not at home.
