Do I smell emeralds?
I smell redstone, actually. It is difficult to find for some, but upon being found, one ore block gives plenty. I do understand why you want to use emeralds, but I want to have a variation on it if we go that route. We use Emerald BLOCKS. It helps us figure out whether we're trading with players or not, and save the normal emeralds to trade solely with Testificates. It helps give the Testificates more character, as well. (The long noses, golems, and general greediness of the trades certainly makes me imagine them to be something akin to Howard Wolowitz and his mother from the Big Bang Theory, weirdly.)
I liked gold nuggets, as they actually made sense. However: Redstone is numerous, far more than gold. Since Redstone is usually not used in large quantities and can only be used correctly by MC veterans (or people that learn quickly [not me]). This gives them another use, especially to the typical user who says "get this outta my mine".
I am happy with either.
Also, I condemn the idea of using emeralds for ways other than trading with testificates.
Also, how does one derive Howard Walowitz from testificates?
It's not like they are pervs or anything...
I agree with standardizing an economy for the server based off of gold ingots and gold nuggets. Gold ore spawns in reasonable quantities and, although time consuming, one may "work" in the nether through grinding out Zombie Pigmen.
We need to agree on a standard set of conversion rates. And, to generate "artificial" value, an OP will act like a bank and must always agree to perform a gold exchange / conversion when asked.
What are fair rates for all of the "natural" items?
1. EE might not be perfectly balanced. (Heh)
2. Fortune picks significantly go up in value if redstone is used. What about something like gold ore? Can't be infinitely farmed, and consistent distribution. Not really sure.
3. Lol redstone. If I do trade, I would use diamonds to buy redstone.
4. What about these conversions? Anyone else remember this?
Or, we could use a "point system" like in this post:

I kind of like that idea!
i think currency shouldn't be introduced on a vanilla server because it makes it easy for people to become lazy and let others do all the mining for things like iron, coal, and other valuables other than whatever is chosen as currency. it's happened on some other servers before, i would like to avoid it here, it kind of ruins the game. (i quit those servers to have more time on this one) and the wilderness area where people mine ends up looking like the picture below.
i like the idea of gold,because other than clocks and powered rails, it has no uses.
redstone does have other uses, and also if people have fortune picks they have a "get rich quick" method.
also if redstone is used it encourages greifers to greif peoples contraptions.
