Dino Dollars are the game's main currency. They are mainly obtained from quests and by selling items to the Market. Unlike Gold Coins, they can not be bought with real money. Players can instead buy Dino Dollars using Gold Coins at the Dino Bank.
You lose a small percentage of your Dino Dollars when you die. You can retrieve up to half the lost amount if you return to your death site within 15 minutes, otherwise, it will despawn and be lost forever.
