I buy 60 diamonds with Bitcoins and now a good portion of the server is dealing in them (with the exception of communists).

Some say it isn't fair. Nonetheless, I stage Bitcoin treasure hunts with private keys inside of books, in-game.

Anyways, just doing my duty for the Bitcoin cause. The fact Bitcoin is becoming regular talk is excellent.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

This is fascinating…I'm casually interested because my kids are addicted to Minecraft.  These people have a good point about an outside currency potentially ruining the game play (no different that if you could use dollars to buy things in the game…people could just buy influence in the game instead of earning it with game play).  But, it's cool that a) you can do this easily with bitcoin, and b) you've got lots of people talking about it.

Now, what would be really cool is to create a new currency that works similar to bitcoin, but where the work needed to bring it into existence is somehow connected to gameplay on the server.  I'm not sure how you'd go about doing it and making it secure (i.e. that someone actually had to play the game to earn the currency instead of just running a program to generate them), but it would be cool if it could be done.

If the game is open source, and the resources created for the game are open source, then DeVCoins might fit this, since people who are actually actively developing will be able to automatically get DeVCoins as they are generated regardless of who actually runs the mining gear.

So for example people creating the artwork, models, meshes, textures and so on to enable a game to progress toward having a three dimensional representation could get DeVCoins for doing that.

Such development could be tied to gameplay by the fact that a character has to actual do the development work or skill-gaining work needed for the character to actually get to produce, in-game, the items the player is doing the illustrations, models etc for.

Unfortunately, the game is not opensource, but they do plan on offering integrated mod support some point in the future. My idea has always been making the game client a bitcoin client, and each time the player mines a block, they execute a hash calculation. For individual players this wouldn't amount to anything, but on a high population server, it might amount to little more than nothing.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

Nah, he's way too fucked up in the head to actually stay away that long, he just didn't post under the id Jon for 7 days. You know he was lurkin' and jerkin' the entire time until he just couldn't stand it any more.

You could make a separate game thread that mines using cpu power at a set difficulty. You would also somehow have to limit each players cpu power for that thread to make it even.

Maybe litecoin would be a better choice...

If you can mine other materials like diamonds couldnt you also mine bitcoins?

IMO, the most ovious thing would be to have the game client or server act as a bitcoin wallet per player, and keeping track of them. using libbitcoin or bitcoinJ this should be fairly trivial.

aww man, this sucks IMO. Their world is supposed to simulate a closed economy and now you just turned it into something with the same business model as an iPhone app.

It's hard to understand what this CivCraft is. I mean I've played minecraft and got quite enthralled with it but is there a synopsis somewhere of CivCraft, what seperates it from the main Minecraft game, and some backstory?
