About EVE ISK
Eve Online ISK (The Inter Stellar Currency) is the currency in Eve. The value of Eve ISK goes up and down according to the demand and supply rules. Eve ISK can be earned by usual mining, running trade route and manufacturing ships. Some optional ways to earn Eve ISK are guarding miner or trade runner in deep space or hunting down pirates and claiming the bounty. Others prefer the opposite, being the pirates themselves and earn more lucrative income. Players spend Eve ISKs to get better equipment, skills, insurance and etc. Often, players look for alternatives to buy Eve Online currency with real money from farmers.
Eve Online ISK Guides
Aside from buying EVE ISK directly, there's always the option to get a decent guide and head out acquiring it yourself. Admittedly, this doesn't compete with the speed and convenience you get when purchasing the ISK directly. On the other side it offers some peace of mind since you don't have to worry about your account and risks associated with the transaction. In a worst case scenario, you are out of the money you spent, but don't suffer any warnings or account suspensions (unless of course you take advantage of bugs and exploits). Unlike World of Warcraft, there is only a limited number of guides available for Eve Online. Killer Guides offers an ISK guide that received decent feedback so far it seems. Other alternatives include a number of free guides posted on EVE forums and communities. Having the definite advantage of being free, the drawback is that it's rather scattered and sometimes provides a lot of conflicting information. In the end, it's up to you what you pick.

EVE Online: Bounty Hunter vs Pirate, who is richer?
In the world of EVE Online, the question of how to get rich is on the forefront of most players' minds. Two professions are consistently cited by gamers to be among the wealthiest: Bounty Hunter and Pirate. Both are combat professions, both require PvP specialization, and both have the opportunity to garner a serious amount of ISK. So which is best? It's a tough question, but when considered in depth, a clear victor arises as the preferred profession for those wanting to get rich.
As far as professions go, being a Bounty Hunter can be pretty exciting; using a locator agent, you have the opportunity to track whichever particular target you choose, making you a sort of Boba Fett of the EVE world
There is the potential for high profits; once finding someone with a bounty on their head, you can receive the full bounty once you destroy 5x that bounty amount in the target's assets (Example: 600 million ISK bounty is obtained after destroying his ship worth 3 billion ISK)
If you like combat, it's enjoyable
Requires exceptional PvP skills to be really effective
High chance of death, often at a frequent rate
Bounty hunting is mainly restricted to farming NPC Pirates and collecting their bounties; this pays relatively little, capping out at 20% of a ship's value
EVE's bounty system is a bit broken; once bounties get high enough, people have their friends kill them and then split the bounty, so the chance of a legitimate Bounty Hunter collecting the bounty is actually quite small
There's a lot of money to be made in this profession, specifically through ransoming; ransoming involves capturing a vessel and ransoming it back to its owner, and when done correctly, it is very lucrative (a good guide to the process can be found here
It's an exciting profession, unlikely to be monotonous; the Pirate profession offers you the chance to wander around and annihilate ships at your leisure (thereby obtaining loot), or to behave more tactfully, hunting down specific vessels to ransom back at a fine price for you; it's really the variety offered in the Pirate life that is its main appeal
Lots of chances to hone your combat skills
Pretty significant risk factor—you'll experience a lot of combat, so the likelihood for loss is high
Chance of your travel ability being restricted due to a lowered security status
Starting up as a Pirate takes a good deal of cash
Overall, it's a much smarter decision to pursue the Pirate life. While being a Bounty Hunter sounds fun (and by all accounts, it is quite exciting), it's such an extraordinarily difficult profession to break into, and the chance of collecting a worthwhile bounty is so rare, that it's almost pointless to try. If your goal is to get rich, being a Pirate is a far better choice.
