What do you understand by biological currency?

Every organism undergoes bunches of physicochemical reactions in order to survive. There are some complex molecules present within the organisms, which can store energy and provide that when energy is demanded by organism itself. For example - ATP, GTP, NAD, NADP, FADH2 etc. Usually ATP stores the highest amount of energy within it and serves the energy demands for other physicocheical reactions. As a result, ATP is widely known as biological currency.
