Easy way to earn Credits

One of the best ways to earn credits is to sell ores. Selling ores on particular price has a tax system of 10%. So first check at what price is a particular ore selling. Then place your ore for selling and then check the profit. If it’s profitable, then sell it.

Sometimes selling items is not always profitable. Here comes crafting items, so now what you have to do is look for an item that you can craft. Check its price and then calculate your individual item price used for crafting and 10% tax and look for profit. This way you can earn more.

One more way you can earn credits is by joining a company. Joining a company helps you in various ways like you can travel different ships, do multiple jobs and collect multiple ores and the rewards get split up. Join the official discord of starbase to look for company.
