It won't be called vouchers in-game.

DDF topic Vouchers 2, Valkyrie refers to possible Micro-Transactions:
Valkyrie @ Frontier Forums PBF wrote:I'm personally not in the DDF, but someone on reddit pointed out that it is currently being discussed. I think this is a very important issue and has the potential for a lot of negative sentiment and could impact the game we love in a bad or good way, but I believe they are calling for discussion so they can get it right. If you're in the DDF, get involved.
Andrew Sayers @ Frontier Forums - DDF wrote:That's a good point, and brings up a bit of a community issue.

I know this is controversial, but could people hold off posting this particular proposal to other sites? It wouldn't be fair to show the world Frontier's first draft before they've had a chance to reply to the 240 or more very detailed opinions they'll have waiting for them tomorrow morning.

Just to be clear, I realise there will be an (extremely important!) role for a wider debate, but the only way to do justice both to Frontier and the community will be to keep your powder dry until we've got answers for the inevitable avalanche of obvious questions.
...and keep it under lightspeed!
