The WOCU is a global composite currency unit made up of a weighted 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. It was launched in 2009 and is monitored by the WDX Institute.
