GoldBank – Banks, ATMs, wallets, and more!

Development Status

I will no longer be releasing updates for this plugin. While GoldBank, being the second plugin I've ever made, holds a special place in my heart, it's time to move on. Because the truth is, it's a huge pile of messy, tangled code written by a developer just beginning to learn the ropes of Java and OO programming. I don't even remember writing a lot of the code still in the latest version, and it may hold nasty bugs that I'm not even aware of. Since I don't plan to release any further updates (well... I might release a 3.0.2 that's been sitting on Github for a while, but then that's it for real), I strongly advise against using it and instead opting for a cleaner and better-maintained economy plugin. With that being said, so long and thanks for all the fish!


I've never really seen the point of virtual economies. I prefer an economy with tangible items. So, I created this plugin. It's essentially the basis for a gold-based economy system. The basic function is the ability to create GoldBank signs, which players can then buy/claim to put their gold in. Once a week, they will receive interest. Additionally, admins can create ATM signs, which allow players to access their bank signs remotely. And furthermore, players and admins may create personalized shops which other players may use to buy and sell items. If you need to expand your inventory, this plugin can do that for you. Just craft a wallet (made with leather in a boat shape), and instantly you'll have a mini-inventory within your regular one (inventory-ception?). But be careful, because if you drop it, another player can steal it from you! Mobs have a nasty habit of losing their wallets, and will often drop gold nuggets when killed. If a player is lucky, they might receive something with a bit more value than mere nuggets.


  • Creates and registers a virtual inventory to a [GoldBank] sign when a player right clicks it.
  • Automatically distributes interest between inventories weekly
  • Signs are automatically protected from access and destruction by other players, pistons, creepers, and TNT
  • Specify tiers of signs with different fees and sizes (Define fees and sizes in the config, and define tiers on the second line of each [GoldBank] sign
  • Create a master sign, which everyone may claim, by setting the last line as "Master"
  • Admins can create [GoldATM] signs, which allow players to access their gold inventory remotely, for a configurable fee
  • Mobs drop a random number of gold nuggets, the maximum being a number defined in the config
  • Mobs may drop rare golden items at a configurable rate
  • Players and admins can create shop signs, which other players may buy from and sell to (see below for sign syntax)
  • Players can craft wallets (crafted with leather in a boat or minecart shape), which act as portable virtual inventories
  • Type "/gb reload" to reload the plugin
  • Full UUID support. Note: this means that the plugin connects to Mojang's UUID API.

Bank Signs


To create a GoldBank as an admin, simply create a sign resembling this:
Tier 1
The first line is static, the second controls the tier (defined in the config), the third is blank, and the fourth, if set to "Master", will allow everyone to register and access their bank account through it, but will not change its text. A regular sign will only allow one player to register through it.


To register a bank with a GoldBank sign, a player need only right-click it. If a fee is set for the given bank tier, the player will be required to pay that fee in golden ingots in order to register.


To access a GoldBank, right-click the sign to open its virtual inventory. Once the player is finished editing, the inventory will be automagically saved to disk.


To unregister a GoldBank, a player must left-click it. This will cause the sign to revert back to an unregistered state (assuming if it is not a Master sign), and its inventory to spill onto the floor in front of the player.

ATM Signs


ATM signs are a powerful tool which allow players to access their GoldBank account from anywhere on the map. When a player right-clicks one, their bank account will open, and they are free to edit it as long as they'd like. If a fee is defined in the config for ATM signs, the player will be required to hold a sufficient amount of gold in their inventory for the sign to charge in order to use it.


Creation of ATM signs couldn't be simpler! Just create a sign and type "[GoldATM]" as the top line (case-insensitive).

Shop Signs

If AngryNerd1 creates this sign:

the plugin will replace it with this sign:


Buy 1 for 4g
Sell 1 for 2g



To create an admin (infinite) sign, simply replace the last line with "Admin", and it will convert to "Admin"
Note: All lines are case-insensitive, spaces may be used in place of underscores, and the item ID may be used in placed of the item name. Additionally, shops which sell the buyer's head can be created, using PlayerHead as the item name.


GoldBank has a wallet feature, where players may craft wallets to carry with them. They allow players to store anything, or just gold, if the server owner desires.


To create a wallet, place 5 leather in the shape of a boat in a crafting table. A wallet will appear in the result slot with the player's name branded on it.


To use a wallet, a player must place it in their hand and right-click. A virtual inventory with a config-defined number of slots will be opened, and they are free to edit it. If the config allows for it, they may add any item they wish. If not, they will be limited to forms of gold (gold tools excluded). When they are done editing, they may hit the escape key to resume gameplay.


  • /gb reload - Reloads the plugin
  • /gb view {player} - Opens a specified player's GoldBank inventory. Note that, if the player argument is missing, it will open the player's own GoldBank inventory.
  • /wire [player] [amount] - Transfers a specified amount of gold in nuggets from your GoldBank to a specified player's. A fee may apply, which is set in the config.


Latest Version (3.0.1)

Known Bugs

  • Players in very rare cases receive change in the form of an ItemStack with strange properties when using blocks to buy from a sign with a different gold type defined. This ItemStack behaves very oddly, but is effectively the same as the ItemStack that should have been received, and can be manipulated into such
  • Players in creative mode may put their wallet inside their wallet, effectively destroying it (though it may be spawned back in via command)
  • The /gb wallet spawn command has no default group set, so it must be manually specified even for operators
