Give it a try. I believe vBux uses a field in the user table to keep track of that user's "money". This plug-in should be compatible with any money system which uses the user table, which I believe is most money systems.

Can you confirm that you've correctly specified a valid usergroup and money row in the "vBulletin -> Stock Trade" options?
