The Buyback Wallet is used to create buy orders for the player on the exchange when an IPO has ended. 5% of the IPO stock price is used to create a price floor.
For example, if 10,000 stocks of Cristiano Ronaldo sell for $1.00 each, this will generate a total of $10,000. 5% of this ($500) will be used to place a buy order for the player on the exchange at $0.05 per stock - creating a permanent price floor for the player.
