The Orbit is a small blue sphere that is about the size of Malik's fingertip. One real-life US dollar would equal about 1,000 Orbits.
Orbits are used to purchase items from other universes. If a universe obtains the technology required to participate in interdimensional travel, the multiversal government requires that they adopt Orbits as their foreign currency. They are commonly used alongside the universe's default currency, and ATMs are used to convert currencies; for example, the Sonic the Hedgehog universe uses Rings as the main currency, and Orbits for currency from other universes.
