Currencies and Exchange Rate


Currency is any resource with easy and immediate access, which can be used to settle debts, carry out monetary transactions, be widely accepted and provide the holder with the right to purchase products and services.

Following are some definitions for the term “currency”:

Currencies are issued and controlled normally by a central figure (government), who is responsible for managing to fix and control the value.
