    Basically I haven't seen any guides to do with making money on Economy and one of the main questions I see a lot is the best way of making money Eco so basically I wanted to make a guide outlining all the ways of making money at all stages of the game and which ways are better than others. Enjoy Reading!


    Starting Out
    This first section will be for beginner players and the first steps to making money when you're just starting out. These are beginning steps to start earning money



    Daily Reward

    • First is the daily reward you can get from doing /daily every 24 hours. This screen will pop up and you can click the minecart do receive $500 added to your /balance

    Voting
    • Second big way to make money in the beginning is to not forget to vote every day by typing /vote In chat. Each Vote on the 3 websites will give you $500 and 1 Vote Key which you can open or sell to other players. Every time you vote there is also a chance you can receive a reward (You can check these by doing /rewards)​

    Profit Shops
    • Big way to start off is to use other players Profit Shops which basically you buy from their shop and then you go to /warp shop and sell it for profit. The list of players with profit shops include (This may be updated and change at any given point and please tell me if you have others to add):
    /visit Memez4dayzz
    /visit Choco _ Orange
    /visit BeensMC
    /visit MangoChilli
    /visit Ben_MTFB
    /visit jajane37
    /visit JAWD543
    /visit Awesomolocity
    /visit Mglenna1
    /visit Gribo


    Next Steps
    This next section for players who have started to have some money come in and need to start making some more income but don't know how to continue



    Lottery
    • Fun way to try and earn some quick easy money is to buy tickets for /lottery. In chat if you type /lot or /lottery this menu will show up showing all information about the lottery. You can buy anywhere from 1-5 tickets by typing /lot buy 1 or /lot buy 2 etc. Up to 5 as a max per lottery and it is drawn about every 40 minutes or so. WARNING, this is a lottery and therefore you do not win every time you buy a ticket. It randomly selects a winner from all the players that bought tickets

    Word Reactions
    • Another way of making quick money is in chat the SkyChat bot will send a message telling you to either type a word or unscramble a word. If it says to type the word in chat then hover over the message and type that word in chat and hit enter. If it says to unscramble, then in your head figure out what word the letters can rearrange to be and then hit type that word in chat and hit enter. If you are the first one to enter it in chat, you receive a prize of between $200-$1000 directly added to your balance

    Selling at Shops
    • A big part in earning money is to just sell the items you've started collecting to other players or the server shop. If you want to make the most money on Crops and Mob Drops, then it's best to visit /warp shop to sell your items as it will give you the most money per stack. For most other items you should sell to player shops as they buy a variety of items across the server. Some major shops for buying/selling include (Please let me know if you want me to add any):
    /visit Calidre
    /visit BearShop
    /visit BeensMC
    /visit Choco _ Orange
    /visit Awesomolocity
    /visit Ben_MTFB
    /visit Gribo
    /visit morayeel

    Moving Ahead
    This last section is how to start turning your money into passive income and start making a lot more money to add to your balance

    Buying and Reselling
    • One thing to start looking for is buying items from players and reselling for a higher price. This could include smaller items like Grass, Iron or Diamonds but could also include more valuable items such as Spawners, Beacons, Elytras, Drop Party Heads, etc. Simply find a deal that seems like a low price to you, buy it, and attempt to find a shop or buyer that will buy your item for more money
    Spawner Farm
    • Once you've started getting some money piling up, a good starting way to invest is to make a spawner farm. The cheapest one is a Pig Spawner farm as it can be bought by doing /shop and buying it for $100,000 or it can be bought cheaper from other players. The main idea is have a grass area where pigs can spawn which then activated by redstone, will be pushed into lava above a platform which can then collect the cooked meat through hoppers into chests. You then go to /warp shop and sell the cooked meat in stacks of 64

    Casino
    • If you have enough money you're able to spend with some risk involved, players have casinos on some of their islands which could include Tower Casinos, Dispenser Casinos, etc. These all involve spending money or items to risk the chance of earning more money or valuable items (Please play at your own risk). Watch out in chat for people advertising to see who has them. This is an example of a Tower Casino where you buy a useless item like cobblestone for a set price and the redstone will do a "spin" which will cause the redstone lights to turn on up the tower until it randomly stops. If you hit certain levels you will earn a prize based on how far you've gone up the tower.

    Crop Hopper Farm

    • As of now, a new item called a Crop Hopper has been added. I won't go into full detail on how it works but I'll link an in-depth thread on it here:
    • Skyblock Official Site | Skyblock
    • It's main function is collecting crops without the use of redstone. To purchase one do /crophoppers in the chat to open the menu but Be Careful it automatically buys it with one click. For example, a Level 3 Crop Hopper will have a maximum of 3 crops picked up per second anywhere within 1 chunk. There is also a limit of 1 Crop Hopper per chunk. It functions also a regular hopper so below I have added an image of an example chunk for a pumpkin farm and a storage system where I have circled the Crop Hopper. If you need help with understanding how it works feel free to ask myself or Megan about it as she was the main tester for it

    PLEASE READ:
    Crop Hoppers farm severely reduce lag and TPS issues so please attempt to aim for these kinds of farms especially since the Piston Fire Limit per Chunk was reduced from 400 in 10 seconds to 100 in 10 seconds

    Conclusion

    This will be the end of my guide and I hope some of these can you help you get going! Please leave suggestions if you'd like new sections, things to be changed, more added, etc. This is just a GUIDE and you do not have to follow this if you do not feel you need to. This isn't meant to show you all the ways to go big and go home on this server, but this should help you get a good idea of some things. Thanks for reading!
    UPDATE February 13/2021: Added casino section
    UPDATE March 29/2021: Added new section for Croppers
    UPDATE April 11/2021 Updated amount received from /daily

    Really nice guide, I feel like casinos/gambling could be an option for money making, but, should probably be disclosed as a high risk high reward option as in the end it is all RNG.

    Casinos are definitely pretty great, and it does make up a huge part of the economy server. I’m really not one to gamble but I’ve tested out different casinos and the only one casino that I felt like was worth it to play in was honeeypot’s (before she made a new island) but idk if it was luck or what HAHAHA

    anyhow loved this guide, thank you for this!! hover the word is what keeps my money coming :pleading:

    ps. good to know that I’m not the only one who does /daily religiously LMAO

    Updated some of the shops and profit shops. Currently not many profit shops but please let me know if you or you know someone who is running one, thank you

    Will also potentially do a full update to account for new croppers at some point

    Brilliant Guide. Thanks for the shop shout out.It may be an idea to push the crophopper farms instead of piston power. Also please add me to profit shop list as I added mine at the weekend.

    Guide has been updated with new Crop Hopper section and it is ADVISED to aim for Cropper farms as opposed to piston farms

    Edit: Also updated some of the shops and profit shops

    Amazing guide. Don't forget to add me to the profit shop list! - 1. Tigerlord600

    Amazing job putting this together. But be more specific for /lot buy because you have to let the new player understand what they're getting themselves into. Have a nice day!
