The identity of the US currency dollar has become a global currency. Dollars and euro are very popular and acceptable in international trade. The foreign exchange reserves in the central banks around the world comprise 64 percent US dollars.

According to the International Standards Organization list, there are a total of 185 crores worldwide. However, most of these currencies are used within their own country. The extent to which any currency is prevailing throughout the world depends on the economy and strength of that country.

The current strength of the dollar was introduced after the Bretton Woods Agreement in 1944. Prior to that, most of the countries considered gold as a better standard. Governments of those countries promised that they would fix their currency on the basis of the value of gold demand.
New Hampshire’s Bretton Woods found the developed countries of the world and fixed the exchange rates of all the currencies against the US dollar. At that time, America had the world’s largest gold reserves. This agreement allowed other countries to support dollar of their currency rather than gold.

For this reason, China wants its currency to be used in full ways for business in the global Forex market. It would be like using yuan as a global currency in place of the dollar. For this, China is improving its economy.
In 2007, Federal Reserve chairman Ellen Greenspan said that the euro could take the place of the dollar.

The euro is also strong because the European Union is one of the world’s largest economies.
