ZZZ vs Genshin Impact Currency Comparison

ZZZ and Genshin Impact basically follow the same currency format, so we compared each of their currencies and highlighted the differences for all you Genshin fans out there.

Once Human Hive Beacon - What is it for Speculation

Genshin has been out for longer, so it has more forms of currency due to its events over the years. That said, we're only comparing the basic currencies from both MiHoYo titles for ease of reading.

Dennies Are Mora

Both currencies are the most common and are earned in various ways. They are also used to purchase food buffs and numerous other items in-game.

Monochrome Films Are Genesis Crystals

Both currencies can be exchanged for premium currency on a 1:1 ratio. These are also paid currencies that you can get during special circumstances.

Polychromes Are Primogems

The most obvious connection to both games is that using 160 of these items earns you a single pull on the banners. Polychromes and Primogems are also widely available through various tasks and achievements (though they are a bit of a grind to get.)

Residual Signals Are Masterless Stardust

Both are obtained through pulling on the gacha side of things. Residual Signals are easier to get however since they come with three tiers of rewards unlike Stardust's 3-star weapon source.

Gear Coins Are Unique to ZZZ

Finally, Gear Coins can only be found in Zenless' Exploration Commissions. The closest comparison to Genshin currencies would be the oculi you search for to unlock more rewards/stamina via the Statues of the Seven.
