Money makes the world go round, and this is no different in the blocky universe of Minecraft. Many Minecraft servers these days implement some sort of structured economy mechanic which allows for players to posses and spend in-game money.

Money functions on these servers pretty much in the same way as it does in real life. It can be used to purchase items, purchase land and, most importantly, as a medium of exchange with other players.

Recently, some funky and fresh ideas have permeated into the Minecraft economy server scene, such as gambling, interest bearing bank accounts & even wagers with other players.

(Note: servers are not ranked in any particular order here, they are all a blast to play)

5 Breathtaking Minecraft economy servers to check out

As far as a practical prison economy goes in Minecraft, Purple Prison is the final frontier. This prison server has developed a highly balanced and regulated economy with a focus on utility for all players, regardless of the date they joined the server or if they are currently rich or poor.

The main flow of money into the servers economy is through mining. Every player has access to a basic mine, where they can mine for blocks they can then sell for cold hard cash. Of course, players can use this in-game dough to level up their prison rank and buy access to better mines that earn more money per minute.

The server gives everyone the chance to become wealthy without mining. However, this is through heavy utilization of player-driven market mechanics. Take player shops, for example; every player on the server can claim their own plot of land and build their very own shop. They can then go on to use the servers specially made plugins to advertise their new found business to others in game.

Purple Prison also offers a huge assortment of custom made casino games for players to risk their hard earned money on and potentially walk away winning big.

#2 EARTH MC IP: EARTHMC.NET

Earth MC is a crazy concept realized to say the absolute least. The server actually unbelievably uses data points from several NASA space satellites to generate accurate structures in Minecraft to model the entire planet earth.

Also, just like the real world, the capitalism is completely cutthroat and intense, with players being allowed to monopolize industries, leverage the real estate market (plots of land) and even build their own cities full of people paying their overlord to live there.
