Minecraft trading and currency systems teased

Minecraft Trading

Minecraft frontman Jens Bergensten has tweeted a teaser of what he's currently working on: trading with villagers, complete with currency.

It'll also give villagers something to do other than hang around and mate with each other, the slackers.
