Gold is the currency used in Silkroad Online. It can be obtained by killing monsters, selling items, or doing quests. Traders in Silkroad can also get money by buying special goods from one city and selling them for a higher price at another city. One can become a trader at level 20 yet it is better to wait until the later 20's early 30's to do your first run because of the monsters you will face on the way.
