    How Bitcoins Work
    Bitcoin is not designed to be a standalone economy on your server, but rather it works in conjunction with your existing economy plugin as players can exchange bitcoins for your normal currency. See more about the value of bitcoins below.

    Value of Bitcoins
    Just like in real-life, the value of bitcoins is volatile and unstable. Every (Minecraft) day at 6:00 am (by default), the value of bitcoins will fluctuate. By holding on to bitcoins, players take the risk of the value decreasing, but the risk could pay off if the value increases. Also, there is now an option to use the real value of bitcoins. Simply enable the setting in the config.


    How do I get bitcoins?
    Mining of course! You won't need a pickaxe for bitcoin mining though... Bitcoin mining in Minecraft isn't as difficult as real-life bitcoin mining but it isn't easy either! You must be the first player to solve a 4x4 sliding tile puzzle in order to receive the bitcoin reward. If you feel this is too easy, set the puzzle_difficulty in the config to 'hard'.

    There is an option in the config to make it so players need to use a "computer" to mine bitcoins. After crafting a computer, just open the mining interface by right clicking the item. In the config, you can also define how many times a computer can be successfully used before it breaks i.e. how many times a mining puzzle can be successfully solved from it. The recipe for crafting computers can be edited in the config as well.




    Black Market
    The black market is where players can buy all that juicy contraband with bitcoins. Open it with /bitcoin blackmarket and simply click items to purchase them. The bitcoins from the purchase go into the bank.

    To configure it use the command: /bitcoin blackmarket setslot <slot> <price> [stock]. This will set the item in the specified slot to the item you are currently holding with the specified price. For example, if are holding 1 cobblestone and you type /bitcoin blackmarket setslot 1 50, it will set the first slot in the black market to 1 cobblestone that costs 50 bitcoins. If you want to remove an item then simply hold air while using this command and put anything for the price. The stock argument represents how many of the item can be purchased (if you don't put a stock amount, it will be infinite).

    amount_in_bank: The amount of bitcoins in the bank. This will change as players sell/buy bitcoins

    bitcoin_display_rounding: This is how many decimal places bitcoins will round to in messages. Actual values are exact, this is only used in messages.

    bitcoin_min_value: The bitcoin value will not drop below this

    bitcoin_max_value: The bitcoin value will not go above this (set to -1 for no limit)

    bitcoin_value: This represents the current value of 1 bitcoin. This number will change from what you set it to unless you have the max & min value fluctuation set to 0

    broadcast_balance_reset_message: Set this to true if you want a message to be sent when a player's balance is reset to due inactivity (described in the above setting). This message can be configured in the message.yml.

    broadcast_real_value: Set this to true if you want the real bitcoin value to be broadcasted at the frequency set in the fluctuation frequency (sorry if this is confusing). Only applies when use_real_value is true.

    circulation_limit: This is the maximum number of bitcoins that will exist on your sever. As the amount of bitcoins in circulation approaches the limit, the mining reward will approach 0 but technically never reach it. If you do not want a limit set this to -1.

    computers: Set this true if you want players to need use a computer block to mine bitcoins.

    computer_recipe: This is the recipe for computers, list of material names is here

    computer_uses_before_break: How many times a computer can be used before it breaks

    days_of_inactivity_until_balance_reset: If a player is inactive for the amount of days you set here, then the bank will reclaim their bitcoins and their balance will be set to 0. This setting is especially useful if you set a circulation limit. Set this to -1 if you do not want to use this feature.

    exchange_currency_symbol: This is the symbol for your normal currency that bitcoins are exchanged for (this is used in messages such as displaying the value of bitcoins)

    fluctuation_frequency: This represents how/when the bitcoin value will fluctuate. It can be set to a time such as '6:00' and every minecraft day at this time the bitcoin value will fluctuate; use military (24 hour) time, do not put am or pm and make sure to put it in single quotes! Another option is to set this value to how often, in ticks, the value should fluctuate. For example if you put 6000, the value would fluctuate every 5 minutes (from when your server starts)

    min_bitcoin_value_fluctuation: The minimum amount that the value of bitcoins will change by (increase or decrease)

    max_bitcoin_value_fluctuation: The maximum amount that the value of bitcoins will change by (increase or decrease)

    max_mining_reward: The maximum number of bitcoins players will be rewarded after solving a puzzle

    min_mining_reward: The minimum number of bitcoins players will be rewarded after solving a puzzle

    new_mining_puzzle_delay: After the current mining puzzle has been solved this is the delay before the next puzzle is generated (in ticks)

    purchase_tax_percentage: This is the tax charged on players buying bitcoins. Ex) If the tax is 15% and the current bitcoin value is $200 and someone buys 5 bitcoins, the tax would be $150, bringing the total cost to $1150

    puzzle_difficulty: Set this to 'easy' if you want a less challenging mining puzzle. Set this to 'hard' if you want a significantly larger puzzle.

    use_playerpoints: If you would like to use PlayerPoints as your exchange currency, set this to true

    use_pointsapi: If you would like to use PointsAPI as your exchange
    currency, set this to true

    use_real_value: Set this to true if you would like the in-game bitcoin value to correspond with the real bitcoin value. If you set this to true then the following config settings will have no effect: bitcoin_min_value, bitcoin_max_value, min_bitcoin_value_fluctuation, max_bitcoin_value_fluctuation, fluctuation_frequency

    world: This is the world that is used to determine when a new day occurs

  1. ZombieSilencerYT
    Version: 2.5
    There is no support the plugin is great but in the wrong hands :( I wish someone would attend this resource
  2. Lamby777
    Version: 2.5
    pretty good, i just wish you could customize more stuff.

    i had to go online and learn how to solve a slide puzzle to get good at this plugin, and i've always wanted to know how to solve one. thank you :)
  3. TomakataABC
    Version: 2.5
    Very nice plugin. I love the way it works, but there could be sell/buy GUI for the bitcoin marketing. But it is still the best plugin I could find.
  4. SirMeliodas
    Version: 2.5
    Amazing plug-in with a lot of really cool features. It is really fun to use. It has some bugs for 1.16.3 version, but it works decently fine. I hope the developer continuous giving support to this plug-in.
  5. Evil0ctal
    Version: 2.5
    Nice plugin.but I want report a Bug,so when set the computer use time to1,If players make more than 1 computers,the computers will be count in one slot,for example 64 computers in one slot,and when they used computer to mine BTC,the slot will all gone,which is the 64 computers in the same slot will all dispear.
    And also a little suggestion,can you add BTC Sell Tax in the plugin,I saw there is a Purchase tax already in it,but there is no Sell Taxs.
  6. RLZ
    Version: 2.5
    Dope! I'd love if you added support for versions under 1.14 as well other than that the plugin is pretty incredible.
  7. ProMoRRom
    Version: 2.5
    Really good resource.
    Could you add examples of the API?
    I would like to know how to get a Player's Bitcoin balance, and be able to set a custom double/float value.
  8. James2555
    Version: 2.4
    Awesome plugin with an amazing concept. Would like to see some kind of bitcoin generator that you can buy with bitcoin from solving the problems i.e AntMiner, GPU mining, and USB miners. I'm not sure how hard that would be to implement but it would be awesome to see!
  9. TNTSquid
    Version: 2.3.5
    Great concept and i love how you mine bitcoins by actually solving a hard puzzle, but price fluctuation should be affected more by how close the current amount of bitcoins circulating to the limit, instead of just random increasing and dropping
  10. Shaun_
    Version: 2.3.5
    I'm amazed of how good this plugin is and how great it is professionally created, I really went down in the dumps knowing that the version which has got the best features (2.3+) doesn't support any version below 1.14, that really is the worst downside, I'd gladly give 5/5 ratings!
