The chip is the unit of currency used in the Scrapyard. It is represented by a "C" that has two bars extending through it vertically, similar to a dollar sign. Chips comes in different shapes, colours, and sizes depending on the denomination. For example, 100,000 chips are dark hexagons, while the 1 million chip that Jashugan bet with a biker gang leader is circular with a wheeled pattern of six spokes. This chip was stamped with "Factory 55" on its rim, indicating that chips are minted by the Factory.[1]
