On the Currencies page, you can create, configure, and manage your game's Currencies:
- You can use Currencies:
- To assign costs to your Virtual Goods - cost a Virtual Good for one or more Currencies.
- To award player Achievements - set multi-currency awards for players when they gain an Achievement.
- When you create a new Currency for your game, you can set sign-up bonuses for each Currency - any new player who registers on your game is automatically credited with the sign-up Currency amounts.
- You can access Currencies programmatically via Cloud Code for all game management purposes.
