    Hi guys, I'm still active on forums even though I've been promoted to helper!

    My idea with Mob coins is similar to cow coins (my casino stocks), except with mob coins you can buy crate keys and other good stuff like mob spawners.

    Mob coins can be achieved by killing mobs, the higher the tier, the higher the chances of getting them. That means iron golems could drop one mob coin with a 5% chance and zombie spawners can drop with a 0.5% chance.

    This isn't really 'my' idea, I just know there are plug-ins for this and really enjoy the trading concept of it. Chest shops could be made more popular by offering to buy mob coins. Overall mob coins would introduce players to the trading aspect of the stock market, as well as popularize the use of more spawners and more keys.

    I personally don’t see the point in this

    On the one hand it would increase valuables but on the other hand.. I don't see players trading cowcoins for iron golem spawners for example. Since you can't do anything with cowcoins other than playing your arcade games.

    Well this is not about cow coins it’s about mob coins. I explicitly wrote, “My idea with Mob coins is similar to cow coins.”
    I wanted to make mob coins not limited to one thing like my cow coins are, but rather a second currency. This second currency would be like gems in mobile games that allow you to buy expensive things.

    He's saying we could implement a new currency, which to me means a way to get players more motivated. Skyblocks often have a period of really high traffic, and then it dies after awhile. Adding a new currency would mean working towards something else. So those players that have been riding the tops of /bal might not matter as much. Stock market isn't a terrible idea, but it IS confusing for a lot of people. But hey, if you play your cards right, you might be able to successfully explain the stock market to a lot of kids.
    and me.

    I mentioned the stock market thing because your cow coin was mentioned

    Mob coins won’t be as complicated as my cow coins. They will simply rise in value value with increases in demand. Then people can buy and sell them in their chest shops.
