– Minecraft Earth ( @minecraftearth) August 30, 2019  In addition to the launch of Minecraft Earth beta on Android, today the announcement of a digital currency in the game for the game was also announced, which is probably the way Microsoft will get most of your game money.
"We are adding a new feature too: rubies," explains a post on the official Minecraft blog. “Rubies are a form of currency in the game that everyone can win by playing the game that allows you to buy building plates during the closed beta. Android users will be able to buy rubies during the closed beta version, but don't worry about iOS users: we have plans to implement this feature very soon! Rubies, whether you buy them or earn them, are linked to your Xbox Live account and will stay with you through Early Access and beyond! ”
