    that's my point it doesn't protect the game. A quick search pulls up plenty of places I can find cracks to play eco offline. All this does is force people who want to play without a connection to do so illegitimately force people who don't want to do that to not buy your game at all and do nothing to stop people from pirating the game. This was all something the industry learned at the start of the last decade. And why most now just require an occasional connection to verify the copies.

    Rather than having minted currencies be abstract give them an actual physical representation with color/texture determined by the material used and a few icons to chose from for the face. This would allow for more dynamic and parallel currencies to be in use on a given world.

    For example a shop could exchange a different number of individual credits for a copper coin than it does a gold coin. Rather than only trading in a single abstract currency.
