The Marketplace (Minecraft Store on PlayStation 4) is a partner program between Microsoft and content creators. The Marketplace is an in-game store, where players can purchase access to skins, textures and worlds from community creators, who in turn get reimbursed for their creations. Players can access these by spending Minecoins (or Tokens on PlayStation 4), which can be bought with their own currency.
Before the Minecraft Marketplace was introduced, real money was used to buy the in-game Texture Packs and Skins. When Mojang did it this way, all of the content had to pass certification on every single platform. The Marketplace and Minecoins were introduced to avoid this.
Any packs that were bought before the Marketplace was introduced read "Owned (P)" instead of "Owned".
On PlayStation 4, Tokens are used instead of Minecoins and do not transfer to or from other platforms. They are light, matte blue and have a large T in the middle instead of an M.
