The WOCU is a global composite currency unit made up of a basket of the currencies of the 20 largest economies, weighted by relative GDP.

It was created in particular to be a convenient unit of account for commodities transactions and having less volatility than the component currencies. Launched in 2009, the WOCU is monitored by the WDX Institute.
