    Recently there was a new snapshot released for 1.17 and it changed the ore generations. (Here is an image that shows how it changed: https://imgur.com/RH5cgSF). As shown in this image, a significantly larger amount of diamonds will generate at really low levels, so my question is: do you guys think this will significantly effect the value of diamonds, and if it does should I spend all my diamonds before the update?

    What would you spend your diamonds on? We don't have a money plugin here, so diamonds will continue to be the currency of choice, as netherite is and will remain too rare to take its place. I'm more curious to see if copper will be added as a currency option.

    I wasn’t worried about diamonds becoming worthless or no longer the currency, I was just worried that they would become devalued due to much more of them being generated in 1.17 chunks.

    But still, what would you buy? Rares? They can always be reprinted, cratering their value. Blocks? Most blocks aren't REALLY worth a diamond a stack anyway, we just don't have diamond shards to properly value them.

    I mean, I can create diamonds out of nothing with both the D20 and the Dadboss Pick, and that hasn't seemed to have devalued them.

    It probably won't, as it seems that you can't instant mine Grimstone, even with haste 2 eff 6 netherite pick.

    In my opinion, I do not expect diamonds to devalue significantly, as you can't mine it at a crazy rate like we are having currently.

    oh yeah I forgot multiple rare can create diamond. I have the second chance pick that does the same, but there's so little rare that does. probably why the diamond value never drop

    Rares definitely hold their value better than diamonds regardless. At least on blue, keeping your assets in diamond blocks and not Rares is doing yourself a huge disservice in the long run.
