Online Economy is a feature in Minecraft Multiplayer. The Online Economy is used to create a currency within the server without having to use an item as a currency.
The online economy can be used in-place of items. There are several plugins that are compatible with the economy feature; including the FloAuction, which allows players to auction items off to other users for a currency amount. Some servers include shops at spawnpoints that allow you to buy and/or sell blocks, this sparing the time of the player by allowing them to buy the block instead of them having to obtain it. Buying/selling is not only held to blocks, but can also be used on items in stores.
Money can be given to other players using the /pay command (that works as /pay <amount> <player>). Money can also be donated to a faction so they can claim land with it.
- Before the Online Economy feature, a common currency in multiplayer servers would be gold nuggets.
