Aether is a digital form of money, stored in the cloud. It acts as fiat money, able to be easily transported, traded, and spent through the use of the Aether Band.
Aether is transferred between accounts through infrared and magnetic messages transmitted when the user scans their Aether band or plugs their ID Code and Password in on a computer or phone.
The Aether Band is directly attached to the skin at birth, and, through biological and chemical engineering, grows with the wearer until death. It can be used to buy, store, receive, and manage Aether through its touchscreen.
The Aether Band can change color and position based on the user's preference.
The Government regulates Aether through either inserting or taking out chunks of Aether as needed.
