Players will be able to see what is for sale at any trade post in the game. However, they will not be able to purchase those items unless they visit the place.

There will likely not be any NPCs in the trade posts, but if there are they will be for cosmetic purposes only. NPCs will not buy items from players for 'default' values.

Currency will actually come from larger guilds, who can make it.

I have a question. Why would players want to trade between trade posts while they can get stuff and convert it to money in central city ?

It was mentioned somewere that the currency will be made with individual guilds or if u will knigdoms, i atleast never heard of it being mentioned officialy that you will get curency at the main city at all, however i never speak anything officialy so I might be the one in the wrong.

resources wil be scatterd over the land so a guild can get easyer access to some resources than the one on the other side of the map and vice versa, if i am not wrong the resources in YO are located closesly to eachother in comparison

I thought, money cannot be produced by players using rawmaterials. I thought it is brought in the game by other mechanics like devs, npc shops, etc.

Well im unsure myself but it should be made by each kingdom and for their curency to have real value insted of just being gold they have to force people to use their curency aka sell their materials/goods at trader posts for their own coins and not the other kingdoms and other things, its just what ive read on some places the detailes idk xD we will see anyway hopefully soon :P

This is somewhat old now, but it was the answere that I got about currency back when Bobik did his ask me anything on Reddit


My question:
"The fact that you can spawn coins in to LIF:YO makes me belive that a monitary economy is gonna be implemented into the MMO. Right now people are using the goood old bartering and trading of actual wares and not coins though. So what are your plans to make the money part of the economy a real aspect of the game? Weekly taxes, some kind of money sink for larger kingdoms, etc?"

His answere:
"Yes we have some huge plans for monetary economy in future. Kingdoms (guilds that had forced to submit or allied another guild) will be able to craft their own coins. Since everyone who can have access to the trade post will be able to place their own buy and sell offers, those guilds might want to provide exclusive goods with a price set only in their own currency, thus boosting that particular currency value. Later on we plan to implement something similar to currency stock exchange, so all player created currencies can be exchanged freely and price of that exchange will be dynamical (like with real life currencies). So a good performance of some guild on a battlefield might raise its currency value on that stock exchange and vice versa ;)"
