Hi everyone and thank you for taking the time to read this post. I'm here to ask today about currency for my world. Not something I've ever put a ton of thought into but, I decided that it would help bring the world to life. It doesn't help that I have limited knowledge on how currency works. At any rate originally I was just going to call the money Chrome which would be solid coins encoded with data which determined the value of the coin. High tech machines would scan the coin after a quick decryption and tampering scans before making the value into a digital form called digital credits(I have a few name ideas). Once in digital form you could simply transfer it to an account or carry it in a digital wallet. The option to only convert part of the chrome coin's value was also an idea. I thought this would be better than making everything purely digital. I even considered making a 'black market' currency for the criminal scene, a shady but, accepted form of money. My big issue really is what the standard backing the money would be or if there even needed to be one at this point. What do you guys think so far?
