Before you go exploring the Tower, let’s take a closer look at the currency and stats of Destiny.

Glimmer: Glimmer is the main currency of Destiny and you receive it by dismantling or selling goods and completing objectives.

Vanguard Marks: You’ll unlock Vanguard Marks at level 18 and it can be used to buy high-end gear for your character. It’s awarded for completing high level strikes as well as participating in weekly activities, as well as exchanging items with the Vanguard Quartermaster.

Vanguard Reputation: this is awarded for completing Vanguard Bounties and can be used to buy high level gear.

Crucible Marks: You’ll unlock Crucible Marks at level 18 and it can be used to buy high-end gear for your character. It’s awarded for completing high level strikes as well as participating in weekly activities, as well as exchanging items with the Crucible Quartermaster

Crucible Reputation: awarded for completing Crucible Bounties, it improves Crucible Rank and unlocks high-end gear.

Crypto-archaeological Reputation: Any Engrams that are taken to the Cryptarch and decoded will improve this. As you rank climbs you’ll be able to buy more Engrams.

Factions: there are three factions in Destiny that you can join once you have reached level 20; Dead Orbit, New Monarchy or Future War Cult. When you reach level 20 buy a cloak, mark or bond for your faction of choice and you can now begin to buy Emblems and Crucible gear with Crucible Marks.

Faction Reputation: you earn this by completing Bounties with your faction cloak, mark or bond equipped.

Mote of Light: this is earned as you continue to get XP after you’ve reached level 20.
