Destiny 2 Silver Currency Guide
The Eververse Trading Company has set up shop in the Farm social hub, and representative Tess Everis is there to help coax you into spending your cash on some Silver, in order to purchase a Bright Engram.
The Bright Engrams are slightly different from normal Engrams, in that they can only be purchased from Tess Everis in the Farm. On top of this, they can only actually be purchased after you reach the level cap of 20, in other words, once you’ve beaten the main campaign of Destiny 2, and are into the endgame content.
Truth be told, we don’t currently know the exact contents of the Bright Engrams. They could potentially contain any elusive weapon or armor items in the game, from Sunshot and Sweet Business, to Rat King and DARCI. It should be noted however, that Bright Engrams contain multiple loot items, unlike the standard Engrams you can cash in with Tyra Karn. It’s entirely possible to get duplicate emotes, shaders, weapons, or armor pieces in the same Bright Engram loot box.
We’ll make sure to update this guide when we have a rough outline of the items that appear more often in the Bright Engram loot boxes, but for now, here are the Bright Engram bundles you can buy from the Eververse Trading Company:

How Much Does Silver Cost in Destiny 2?
So, now that you know how to purchase the Bright Engram loot boxes themselves, how do you purchase the currency of Silver to buy them? Silver can only be gained through spending real world money, and the bundles of Silver that you can purchase from either the PSN Store or Xbox Live can be seen just below:
Silver Prices in Destiny 2

- 2000 Silver (+300) - $20
- 5000 Silver (+800) - $50
Destiny 2 Bright Dust
Bright Dust is interlinked with Silver in a way, in that Bright Dust is mainly obtainable through Bright Engrams, which in turn are purchased with Silver. Bright Dust can be used to buy shaders, ships, and other items like weapon ornaments, which you can't find anywhere else in Destiny 2.
To start with, your main way of earning Bright Dust will undoubtedly be to purchase Bright Engrams at the Eververse Trading Company stall. Another way to earn Bright Dust is to dismantle certain items, namely Transmat Effects and Sparrows/Ships, which will usually give you 5 and 100 Bright Dust, respectively.
Once you've got your hands on enough Bright Dust, make your way to the Eververse Trading Company stall in the Farm, where you can purchase any of the Ships, Sparrows, Shaders, or Emotes on offer, provided you've earned enough Bright Dust.
