    Default Selling Gems: Legal or Illegal?

    So, uhh, my friend and I are planning to sell gems, in exchange of World Locks of course, in game and we just wanna know if it’s legal or not.

    We will be using Magplants (for breaking the farmables = gems in the world) and GrowScan for us, and also the buyer, to check if the gems in the world are accurate.

    My apologies if I’m sounding ignorant right now but we just came back after 2 years of inactivity, so yeah we just wanna make sure we won’t be doing something illegal or else, we’ll just stick to buying packs through gems then selling ‘em afterwards.

    Thanks to whoever will answer!

    precautions were taken to prevent people from selling gems, but nowadays i don't think it's illegal; as i see some forum posts and many SBs about selling gems, plus you're not using any illegal means, just in game mechanics; So you should be all good.

    As long as everything is kept in game it is 100% legal. Many youtubers have done it but if you still aren't completely reassured, here's a link to one of shadowsurfer's (a mod's) vid buying gems

    Hey, there Impassive!


    There i no rule at the moment which prevents players from selling/buying gems. Maybe someday they will add restrictions. Also, i have seen a lot of YouTubers buying and selling gems. I wouldn't worry if i were you. Just dont sell for real €€€ or other in real life currency.

    Buying/selling dropped gems for WLs/items is currently perfectly legal, you won't be punished for selling your gems this way.

    It shouldn't be illegal from my understanding. But yes waiting for a mod to answer your question is the best answer.
