Types of Currency
Silver Coins are a currency bound to the character and cannot be used for trade between players. Silver Coins can be used to purchase some items from NPCs, to use Practice Martial Arts, to pay stagecoach fees, to pay Life Skill fees, etc. Depending on the player's subscription status, there are daily spending limits for Silver Coins. Once a limit has been reached, the player has the option to use Taels instead.

- Putting a bounty on criminals.
- Bribing guards to get out of jail.
- Speeding up cultivation using Practice Martial Arts.
Taels can be purchased from the Snail Games official website with real money ($3 for 100 Liang) through credit card or PayPal. Some in-game ways of obtaining Taels are listed below:
Gold is a premium currency that cannot be obtained through normal gameplay and must be bought with real money ($3 for 10 Gold) through credit card or PayPal. It is used to purchase the VIP subscription and items from the Cash Shop. The Cash Shop items include Identity Outfits, Horse Whistles, Annotation Books, and sometimes Martial Arts Skill Sets.
Gold can be converted to Bank Notes at a rate of 1 Gold per 10 Liang Bank Notes.
When Joint Deletion is enabled, it is possible to automatically spend Taels instead of Silver Coins when the player does not have enough Silver Coins or their use is restricted. To enable deduction, the player must select the Joint Deletion option on the bottom left corner of their backpack interface.
