Astatine is an exceptionally rare element that is very unstable and difficult to find; it doesn't stick around for long. However, it has potential uses in medical science, genetics research, fighting cancer, and even things like lessening the effects of aging. Because of its rarity and incredible uses, it's in extremely high demand in other parts of the galaxy. It just so happens that the Alurizans are among the only out there who have figured out to harvest and use it.
This currency is rewarded very rarely and can be used to purchase exclusive items!
Adored by children and adults alike Orbits are a classic hard candy token. Their flat disk like shape fits perfectly on the tongue to melt away into sour Ru berry flavored goodness.
You can often find these treats given away as prizes for completing festival activities. Some people like to use these candy coins as a sort of currency, allowing kids their first taste of responsibility and the every impending decision of choice. Most give into the temptation of taking a bite, however.
The world of the Aluriza is an extremely advanced civilization where everyone's needs are met, so there is no longer a need for "money". Prestige however, can be earned by those who go above and beyond to contribute positively to the society. For the Xeros that value being known or remembered, or for those who just want to contribute: if you do good things you gain Prestige, recognition and rewards for your efforts; you get your name known. There is still a drive to succeed, but for accomplishments, not cash.
Prestige is the main currency of Project Xero, and is used for most normal purposes on the website, such as purchasing general items. It would be obtained by completing prompts, submitting art, playing mini games, and more.
Submit your extra data to the Research Note Exchange, and in return, we’ll provide baseline information on another species of interest. The particular data you receive is up to you to choose from our database - perhaps you’ve been tracking Volans and would like to know where you might spot an Ascadon, or maybe you’re positively swimming in Boolew and are wondering what our jungle teams have learned about those Teropitas!
To summarize: if you went through all the effort of going on a second expedition only to study the same animal as last time, if desired, you can exchange your duplicate Research Notes in the Exchange "Shop" to get a different creature!

Aluriza as a society has more or less eliminated 'need'. As technology and ethics paved the way into solving the issues of labor, money has become obsolete; people don’t work because they are required to in order to afford basic needs, they either do or don’t do so to contribute to society, help others, or chase adventure. Society doesn’t suffer for this; people's curiosity is nurtured and there are always people interested in the challenges that must be faced.

Trapped in an elliptical orbit around the Owai System, 'Wish Shard' is the name given to the remarkable meteorites that annually fall on Owai-6 around the Longest Night. Entering the atmosphere with a brilliant blue streak, these rocks are the remnants of Owai-8: an uninhabited planet that long ago was destroyed. Those lucky enough to find a fallen shard report unusual crystal formations that seem still warm to the touch.
Look out for the elusive Crater, which appears once per month to find more shards than usual. Wish shards as currency cannot be traded between users, but comet clusters can.
