The "base" currency is the asset that is traded on a market and the "quote" currency is used to pay for it. Hence, the price of the base currency is "quoted" in the quote currency.

At GSMG we use the most commonly used "format": BASE/QUOTE.


In the pair XRP/USDT we call XRP the "base" currency and USDT the "quote" currency.
