SUBSCRIBE to never miss a Theory! ►
In Minecraft's recent update to the Villager trading system, they stopped with their randomly-generated prices and started setting a standard. Well Theorists, give me a consistent standard and I will give you a theory! This is the key to figuring out the economy of the Minecraft world - or at least the value of all the good we've been trading all these years. The most curious, to me, were the emeralds. How much is an emerald worth in Minecraft - and how does that potentially RUIN Minecraft's whole economic structure? Let's find out!

  • I dont have any emeralds but I live in a desert next to a village and an acacia forest so my main wood is acacia and my main food is Carrots because of my huge carrot farm underground.

  • Probably you know this but i am gonna say it. You cant count the emeralds real currency worth with minecraft items because minecraft logic and real world logic is different. For example papers are so cheap because they are so easy to find and so easy to craft in real world and in real world paper is not that useful. but in minecraft you can do books and bookshelfs and with that you can start enchanting. Papers are more important in minecraft and in real world papers are made of trees and you can find it everywhere in minecraft but in minecraft sugar canes are rare than wood so paper is more expensive in minecraft.
