Awash between the Voids
While each culture has its own denominations, Joy is the primary currency used almost universally in Between the Voids. All major cultures accept Joy and most major banks will convert other currencies to Joy upon deposit. The word “Joy” is both singular and plural (1 Joy or 5 Joy). Smaller denominations of Joy do come in coin form, but most Joy is purely electronic. Joy coin denominations are 500, 1k, 2.5k, 5k, 10k, and 25k.
Joy has been used consistently for several centuries and has become quite devalued. When first released, 1J was enough to buy a hot meal and a drink. Now, the cheapest, quick meal one can find costs about 250J.
