Form of trade involving the use of certain materials considered by all involved parties to be of certain inherent value.
By the 24th century, the majority of non-Federation worlds in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants adopted a monetary system backed by gold-pressed latinum. The Federation government eventually adopted an exchange rate between credits and latinum, so as to further encourage free trade between member and non-member worlds.
It is unclear what the exchange rate is between credits and latinum.
