Explanation of the Bank of Waramon and Emerald Currency
This is a more technical explanation of how the economy system in Wolfia works. This is not important to know, it’s just if you want a full understanding of how the bank and currency are managed.
A player’s balance represents any legal tender they have in their inventory, in their Ender Chest, or stored in the Bank (a Checking Account). Emeralds* are the only legal tender in Waramon. Therefore, only physical Emerald items may be counted as part of a player’s balance.
*This DOES include Blocks of Emerald.
Emeralds are not finite, and may enter or exit the economy at any time. This helps keep a fairly stable number of Emeralds in the economy.
Emeralds may enter the economy through:
- The Bank of Waramon: Emeralds may be created in the event that the Bank needs more to pay a player (for a loan, or in exchange for minerals)
- Villager trading
Emeralds may leave the economy through:
- Destruction / Despawning
- Villager trading
If you have any questions, please ask Kyle for more information.
