But in every MMORPG there is a sercet underground market for buying and selling items and currency
DIII is not an MMORPG.

Proof of fixed amount? Besides, TotalBiscuit's statement is qualified by him saying he doesn't have any idea of what the fee will be, he's just using those numbers as a scenario.

It is in the source article, you barely have to scroll down to find it.

It will cost a small flat rate to list an item on the auction house, and Blizzard will take another flat rate fee when the sale is completed. Both figures will be in real money, but they’re not proportional to the value of the item. Blizzard say they wanted to stay away from taking a percentage cut.

“Percentages really incentivise us to manipulate the system,” says lead designer Jay Wilson, “and we don’t even want the incentive to do that, much less actually doing it.”

Despite the flat fees they take, Blizzard don’t expect it to be a money spinner for them. “We expect it’ll break even,” lead designer Jay Wilson says.

“We talked about this as a service we wanted to provide players, and not primarily as a financial model… we don’t know if it will make us money. It would be nice if it did, but as long as we don’t lose money, that’s really what we care about: that we provide the players with a great experience that doesn’t put us out of business.”

I asked if they’d still do it even if they couldn’t take a cut of the sales. “Absolutely,” says Jay.

"Aside from certain quest items, there will be very few (if any) items that will be “soulbound†to your character and therefore untradable."

TotalBiscuit mentions this mmo-champion page, with official Blizzard information.

A few people would do well to actually read it.
