There are glitches, and there are exploits. This is the latter, as pointed out by YouTuber WhatMyGame. He outlines a quick way to start hoarding cash in a game without very much:

Next, slaughter the cows! You know, like this:

Plus, it’s not very nice to make a killing field of virtual cows, you jerk.
