This artwork illustrates a global currency through the creative formulation of an equation and a trading algorithm for the currency exchange market. The creation of algorithmic trading combines art with the material that governs contemporary society and in doing so, it aims to introduce new art practices. The artwork seeks to inspire social progress through envisioning positive and innovative economic tools. It addresses the inherent instability of various currencies, as well as the need for a new independent global reserve currency that could potentially empower and unite the world population. The conceptual artwork is illustrated through the artistic expression of a mathematical equation and a diagram of an algorithm. These two elements indicate how the value of the currency is calculated and how its liquidity is created and maintained, while an accompanying text indicates how the equation and algorithm work.
