Due to the em-c-unit, the Commonwealth is a post-scarcity society. Most equipment and basic goods are available for little or no cost on Commonwealth ships, installations, and the Core Systems.
However, there is still high demand for finely crafted goods, special materials, and enchanted wares. Commonwealth credits are used as an exchange of time and resources for requisitioning these rare goods.
Other societies do use standard currencies.
Most advanced alloys and composites incorporate some amount of gentech, though this may be due to a naturally infused ore, rather than a refined or enchanted substance.
