Minecraft's marketplace is stocked with unique skins and worlds created by players for players. Some of them are free, while most of these maps need to be purchased via an in-game currency called minecoins.
Minecoins can be purchased from the marketplace using actual money and then be used to make in-game purchases.
There is a map for every type of player to explore within the marketplace, but here are the top five Minecraft maps as of 2021.
