    In Minecraft's recent update to the Villager trading system, they stopped with their randomly-generated prices and started setting a standard. Well Theorists, give me a consistent standard and I will give you a theory! This is the key to figuring out the economy of the Minecraft world - or at least the value of all the good we've been trading all these years. The most curious, to me, were the emeralds. How much is an emerald worth in Minecraft - and how does that potentially RUIN Minecraft's whole economic structure? Let's find out!

    2. TheVentMan

      Best Intro Ever

    3. Zapper

      So you’re telling me that they can afford giving away 10s of thousands of emeralds which should I say with the strongest most powerful being of any universe is rare to find naturally but the villagers can’t afford to make rabbit stew. something isn’t adding up

    4. Reducted_Pain


    5. Oilicec Otos

      An emerald is worth well, it’s worth 1one sea kelp from a wandering trader

    6. Smitsy2463

      You should have done the amount of time it takes to get the item and do the value of time

    7. Kelley Bozeman

      Emailed simultaneously the most worth and worthless item

    8. Vuurstergaming

    21. m_e_d _i

      Mat went from talking about minecraft to talking about the real world history and what he thinks will happen in the future

    22. Drip Knight

      It changes depending on who your giving the emerald to For some people it's super expensive but for others it's worthless

    23. Bighaverlegend 69

      If you cure a zombie villager you can get a full set of *enchanted diamond armour for 4 emerald*

    24. the body pamp

      I swear that after a global disasster like a nuclear war or an alken invasion or zombie apocolypse the best currency will be seeds.

    30. Alfie Ions

    41. LightBlazeX

      The real item worth a lot of money here is the lava that can be used like real life crude oil. And we have a whole dimension filled with it.

      1. Ant C


      2. Salazar Slytherin

        The Nether is Minecraft's Middle East, confirmed!

    42. Furry Trash

    43. Balwinder Kaur

      So you wanna say one high end minecraft emerald is worth Bill gates’s net worth

    44. Balwinder Kaur

      The range is inconsistent because in real life The cheap stuff is made automatically But in minecraft the bread is made all manually And the paper is a nightmare to do by self

    45. Gamer Rat

    46. Golembruh

    53. The.Knightmare

      who all noticed the pokemon emerald game card and a magicarp poping up on the word "Unnecessary"

    54. Tutorials and Games

      i think that emeralds in minecraft costs nothing just beacuse they are in a game that you cant pucharse emeralds,gold,diamonds or iron with real money

    55. Elol051 _

      well, for lukethenotable 1 emerald is one watermellon piece and 1 stick, and he trade the watermellons and stick to the villager non stop which means, the villagers have an unlimited supply of emeralds

    56. Yanzhi Aquino

      Steves is a demi-god he can respawn hes strong and he can eat golden food and can be in creative and fly and get all the stuff he needs and can kill a dragon one handed and can withstain Extreme damage Hes a true demi-god *BUT THATS JUST A Theorie A GAME THEORIE*

    57. Olim Pather

    62. Faylenn

    63. Out of content • 21 years

      Me explaining why my minecraft village is communist be like:

    64. Wooly

      Poor sonic

    65. YAH GYAH

      its worth 8.7 hypixel skyblock coins, duh

    66. Devjeet Mishra

      The thing wrong in this is that there is a trade which is 1 emerald for 1 diamond, which just disproves this whole video

    67. hanna beso30

      So what matpat is saying is RESPECT VILLLAGERS

    68. Basement Productions


    69. Voids Grave

      i gave 1 emerald for a enchanted dimound sword because i cured him

    70. Mellow FN

      U can cure a villager if he’s a zombie, and when U do, everything is, for example, instead of 16 sticks for an emerald, to 1 stick for one emerald!

    71. ꧁༺『Rock filler』༻꧂

      For villagere emerald's can range from 1 to infinity $ because if the emerald is larger weights more but we cant know that can we?

    72. Speedybug Brylyth

      I disagree with using the blocks as a baseline: We have no reason to believe those blocks are solid, and you can math out how large they are using the 1st person view model when holding them..

    73. Speedybug Brylyth

      Seeing the bread trade, I immediately decree that an emerald is worth $6 CAD, and my mind cannot be changed.

    74. sans blans


    75. Ruben Schwirtz

      2:46 where did he get that list of everything u can buy

    76. •Brylle da Gamer Boi•


    77. TACKY


    78. R U sarions

      this video made me grateful about the world today like i could just buy bread in my local supermarket or convenience store but back then you really had to work hard for those kinds of things

    79. Bisky_Riznew

      Please don’t shave your head again Matt Damon *insert elysium movie cover*

    80. Minecraft Lover2012

      I love your theme song

    81. GalaxyGamerTD

      I have memorized that intro and outro

    82. CampfireDude

      When i started my world they were valuable but when i got to a village the entire world had so much inflation that emeralds were less valuable than 0 blocks of dirt

    83. Sans

      And they are really easy to get, i mean look at how many emeralds Luke the notable has on his hardcore Minecraft world, he turned a village into an emerald village!

    84. Crusader

      Me: Has my Inventory full of emerald blocks after 24 days of mining Everyone Else at the Village: (Minecraft steve is a god in strength,)

    85. DearRoblox

      wait, isn't paper worth more than 2 cents back in the day?

    86. Gopi D


    87. Guusgeluk1969

      I love that he doesn’t just say in the begging:hey guys plz like and sub

    88. Brecon

      Ok ima start hording mine raft emeralds now

    89. Lee Wen Chang

      Theory: Villagers can deflect Kakyoin’s emerald splash because instead of taking damage they would take money.

    90. kingster C.

      I think that the value of emeralds also goes with the value of the trade, from how much xp you get and level up

    91. sub2Z_FUTURE2

      11:16 why are you getting emeralds insted of the diamonds behind you

    92. ochaco ueraka

      My birthstone is emarald

    93. Toast

      Old town road parody : Yeaaaa I’m gonna take my grandma to the old folks home because she don’t wanna cook no more

    94. Theresa Slowinski

      It depends how many emeralds exist in a Minecraft world

    95. dolfin pug

      i feel as though the emeralds worth is different for each type of trader

    96. Carlos Chiquete


    97. austin miller

      Anybody make a living as a villager mod off of this info? Sounds like an interesting challenge

      1. mr. roblox cat
