Credits are the currency of the Starmade universe. They are used to purchase a variety of goods and services from Shops.
Credits are the only currency available and is accepted at all Trading Guild and player owned shops. They are not subject to inflation or deflation, however the price of items can change depending on the current local demand for the product. Individual servers can set the base price of items which will effect the value of credits.
When players begin the game they will start with 50,000 credits to spend as they so choose. The most common use for Credits is to buy and sell materials from Shops. Typically, one will mine and sell ore in exchange for credits, then use the profits to buy manufactured goods. This method is considered more efficient than manufacturing in the measure of ore to product.

- While it is technically possible to build an empire without using any credits, it is much easier to utilize trading.
- Currently there is no way to transfer money from player to another without directly dropping credits in space. Its is believed that the "Player Trade" option (As of Alpha 0.199.472 is not implemented yet) will solve this.
