The idea of a single global currency is not unique. Countless ideas for one have been presented in an effort to stimulate the global economy and place nations on a level playing field. There are examples of regional currencies designed to accomplish that very goal ― the most notable being the euro, a continental currency created for (most) members of the European Union. The notion has been fodder for conspiracy websites that any such standardization was a ploy by the world’s elites to control the money supply.
The notion of a single global currency was not a new one when it was introduced in the middle of the 21st century. Going back to the early part of the century there were countless examples of governments promoting the idea and conspiracy groups decrying it:
The introduction of a single currency in the world of America Incorporated serves two goals ― to show corporate commitment to reorganizing the global economic structure to avoid the events that led up to the economic collapse of 2029 and to play on the inherent fears of a group of elites manipulating it. In the black swan saga, this money supply called Bytecoin, the successor to Bitcoin, accomplishes both goals. Like its ancestor, it is an electronic currency ― no physical form of it exists. Unlike Bitcoin, it is not an open-source product and is controlled by a central authority based out of Geneva that works to control the money supply. Although technically not aligned with any corporation or entity, there are rumors that this group is under the control of Intercorpex who is leveraging them, and their influence over corporations, in an effort to enhance their power.
All financial transactions are done via Bytecoin. Although gold was the new standard following the collapse, and despite the fact that many patricians still horde it, the new global currency was fully embraced as a way to enhance trade and commerce and facilitate transactions. It is the only form of payment allowed by Intercorpex, and as such, patricians have fully embraced its use.
