has anyone thought of this?
actualy making real money on minecraft like second life???

for e.g you build houses and players will buy a house for lets say... "10 gold ingots" which = c10 in real life??. imaging that!, not only will the Owners benefit but players can actually make real money! and people can buy number certain blocks to make land! and sell special items they can make some how.

this is a good business idea and i'm keen on doing it if i have a team of people!
just imaging that! real money for playing minecraft could be the next BIG! thing like second life... so many people have created MILLIONS! from playing second life and doing business in the virtue world... if that is even a word!...


what do you guys think?
anyone wanna join me because i'm thinking of doing thing hit me up

Hahaha keep dreaming. This is just going to make people addicted to Minecraft. People will become out of control, and note that the majority of the people playing are kids. Which means that the money has to be collected by their parents. Most parents are against using their means of payment etc to do stuff like donations. It's not going to happen, but at least you have creativity, which most people on this site lack.

No one would pay for someone to build a house.

This is what i think it would happen
"7 year old: HEY MOM CAN YOU BUY ME THIS HOUSE IT COSTS 100 DOLLARS PL0X"
"mom: No, its too expensive and its only a game"
"7 year old: pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeasee"
"mom: I said no."
"7 year old: ill do anything"
*mom buys the house*
*10 years later*
"17 year old: oh god, why."

If this was implemented griefing would be considered a type of vandalism. So it would take a ton of fun out of the multi-player game in the griefing way.

ok, in theory this would work, but when you do this in practice its a bad idea because:
A:inventory edit mods
B:1.3 having the ability to change between creative and normal mode
C: how would you get the funding?
D: most importantly GET MOJANG PERMISSION FIRST

(edit) if i cant sell my texture pack for a one time purchase, after asking for permission, i doubt they will let you do this
