This is an estimation of the exchange rate for Bits = Dollars and Jangles = Dollars

This theory will be going by the assumption that a bucket of apples seen in Call of the Cutie is 1 Bushel, costing 4 bits

Bits (If apples were very cheap)

4 Bits = $2.00 Nets you a bushel of apples (40-42 apples)

1 Bit = $0.50 cents Nets you 10-10.5 apples

0.08-0.10 Bits =  $0.04 7/10 - $0.05  Gets you a single apple

Bits v2 (If apples went for around the same price as the real world)

4 Bits = $14.00 Nets you a bushel of apples (40-42 apples)

1 Bit  = $3.50 Nets you 10-10.5 apples

0.08-0.10 Bits = $0.35-$0.37 Nets you a single apple

Bits v3 (If real world Bit was equal to the alternate Bit shown in the show)

4 Bits = $0.50 Nets you a bushel of apples (40-42 apples)

1 Bit  = $0.12 1/2  Nets you 10-10.5 apples

0.08-0.10 Bits = $0.01 1/4 - $0.01 1/24 (approx.) Nets you a single apple.

Jangles were used in older generations. This will be going by the episode "The Great Lemonade Stand War".

Really, conversion seems quite simple:

2 Jangles Get you two "extra special" lemonades

Lemonade at those stands generally go for around a dollar. Assuming that:

1 Jangle = 1 Dollar

A simple theory I created and discussed throughly with fellow bronies while watching the Pony stream.

UPDATE: Yes, I know of the real world Bit.

Thank you sir! I've been wondering about this.

Ha! Awesome. This is exactly what I needed.

So going by the v2 conversion rules, in Equstria I'd be making about... 2 1/2 bits an hour.

Wow that's... SUPER depressing...

Ok, I think v2 is most likely, since apples here cost a moderate amount per apple, so a bushel would be fairly priced based on v2. Honestly, I'd be set with the usual 40$ I withdraw a week from my checking account.

2 bits = 1 mug of cider = about $3.50
