Tau Station follows the "freemium" model of game design:

  • Credits are the standard currency for Tau Station, used for most common transactions.
  • Bonds are the premium currency, which may be purchased in the shop for Real World™ money.

One Bond can be converted to five credits at any Bank — but don't do that, the 5:1 exchange rate is terrible. Much better to buy a 3-Day VIP from a market vendor (290 bonds) then sell it on the public market for 24,000 credits for an 82:1 exchange rate. Ask in the chat to confirm a buyer first, but there are several who have a standing offer for that trade. As of June 6, 2018, it is no longer possible to sell VIP packs. As of June 20, 2018, VIP packs can be sold again.
