How do I get Minecoins in Minecraft?

Games make money in one of two ways; the original purchase of the game if it is a paid title, and through the sale of in-game merchandise. Popular games can also sell physical products ie, game merchandise although they are likely to be purchased through an online store that is not built into the game.

Games that sell in-game merchandise; maps, skin, ammo, weapons, etc. do so using their own in-game currency. In Minecraft, the in-game currency is called Minecoins.

Minecoins, like most in-game currencies, are bought with real money. They cannot be earned within the game. They can be used to buy items in Minecraft Market and have no external exchange value ie, minecoin cannot be used to buy items in any other market.
