Exchange Rate

Exchange rates represent the value between the currencies of two countries on a given date. These rates are free-floating or fixed. In most cases, exchange rates are free-floating and the value can rise or fall based on market supply and demand. Fixed exchange rates have more restrictions and their value is set by the government.

In FintechOS, the Exchange Rate menu allows users to add the exchange rates needed in financial operations.
