    Let's say that you want to mass produce Magic Bacon, and to do so you need Orange Blocks. Because let's say you're aiming to make 100 trees and for 100 trees you need 100 orange block seeds. Buy the Orange Blocks and then harvest them until around 300 seeds. By doing so you bought 100 seeds and you going to start with 300, this means you will be able to make more than a hundred trees and also you won't loose any WLS. But you need to do this for every seed type that you need to make your Magic Bacon.

    ECONOMICS: CLASS 101
    The value is determined by the quantity and demand
    More and more people are mass producing more and more items. The quantity is rising fast but the demand is rising slower. The demand for an item is partially determined by the number of wls flowing around in the market. Most people would rather sell and item for wl, instead of buying wls for 2000 gems from the store. With the new updates more and more world locks are lost.
    Let's look at an analogy:
    100k of items available ~ 100k wls avalible
    200k of items available ~ 90k wls avalible
    so the price will continually drop and drop because of mass producers themselves, eventually it won't even be profitable, and it'll be better for people to just buy world locks for 2000 gems.
    Basically what I'm saying is Growtopia is headed towards a crisis (market crash) and I think the only way to stop this is to put more world locks to circulate in the market. Also new players are needed because no one really wants to buy all those items, more players = more wls = solution.
    My solution is for the devs to put an advertisement out there OR make world locks cheaper in the gem store so people will buy it.

    You don't need to mass produce magic bacon. It was just an example. Choose an item of your liking. And here are some names of worlds that hopefully help you out: MASSHELP and MASSRICH.

    I've got an method, INVEST!, if you have been playing long enough you'll find out that some items lose value at certain time, but gain value at the right time. By investing you can gain a lot of wls, but there are two types of investment; Long term and short term investment. Short term investment is buying a simple item and selling it for more, an example of this would be buying a dead Geiger for 10 wls and charging it until it's alive and selling it for 11 wls (Only get back 1 wl). Long term investment is buying an item and waiting for its value to rise to it's highest then selling it. An example of long term investment is buying angel wings for 39-42 wls (June 14, 2016) and selling it for more during Halloween.

    Another method is to wait until a update find out the recipes of the item(s) and sell the item(s) for more, an example would be this update at the moment (Pet battle update). The battle leash is worth about 10-12 wls (June 14, 2016), knowing the recipe you can mass produce the item and sell it for more.

    People are also too lazy to make items from scatch so mass producing is a good idea, but it depends on what is needed in the game, like when people were trying to find out where the pig leash comes from, magic bacon was a huge demand item, but know that people know that it does come from magic bacon (Source) its not much demanded as it once were.


    The way I see it, Growtopia is like real life, where the rules of quantity and demand rule the game. Knowing how quantity and demand works you'll be able to succeed in Growtopia like you do in real life.

    Yes, thank you. But I've still tried short/long term investment, they still didn't work out! Any help?
