Workshop Points are generated in the Workshop, which is unlocked after level 20. Currently, there are five robots and five different weapons that require Workshop Points for purchase and three robots that require Influence Points for purchase.
Silver is the most easily acquired type of currency. However, it is worth noting that Silver is also the most needed currency later in game, due to enormous upgrade prices of the weapons\bots from level 9 and above.
Over half of the robot types and most of the equipment costs silver. It is the only type of currency used to upgrade robots and items to higher levels.
Silver is awarded for a variety of accomplishments during battles: most significantly the total damage dealt to enemies. Other events that earn silver are: number of robots destroyed (killing shots), number of Beacons capped, and number of critical hits (shots that destroy weapons or slow a robot's movement speed). Winning the match will add a 50% bonus.
Additional Silver can be purchased in the game by spending Gold, and you can earn more silver per match by buying Premium.

Gold is the most difficult currency to come by and its most important use is unlocking hangar slots. It can also be used to purchase certain robots and items, most of which are highly sought after. Other uses include accelerating upgrade time and purchasing additional Workshop Points (WP).
A player earns 50 Gold each time they level up. Gold can also be earned during battles by winning medals. Four medals are awarded each game to players on the winning team. A "Medal of Capture" awards 5 gold for capturing the most beacons, and the "Medal of Valor" medals award 5 gold for first place, 3 gold for second place, and 1 gold for third place. More information about medals earned during a match can be found by pushing Rewards next to the Team button at the match review screen. If the player did not get any medals, this button will be greyed out. Additionally, Platooning with a clan or friends can also net 3 gold for the first three victories with squadmates.
Each day two daily missions are assigned which award gold (or less commonly WP) when completed.
