Currency is only needed in economies with a large mixed set of goods. Minecraft isn't this economy. In a limited economy, bartering is more efficient, outright sharing of goods is even more efficient.
I am a no vote on currency. I wouldn't use it, I wouldn't accept it, and I might not play nice with those in the currency racket because my actions outside of it will unduly influence the value of the currency etc.
Let's not mention that slime balls, while rare are non-finite. Their value will thus be highly fluctuating....
