Determinants of value
The relative value of the yami is determined in foreign exchange markets by the economic forces of supply and demand. The supply of the yami in the market is governed by the desire of yami holders to exchange their yami for other currencies to purchase goods, services, or assets. The demand for the yami is governed by the desire of foreigners to buy goods and services in Gurenn and by their interest in investing in Gurenn (buying yami-denominated real and financial assets).
