Credits are the basic currency of Asphalt 8.

  • Unit: A8 credits small Credit
  • Spending:
  • Earning:
  • Buying:
    • Real money: Credits can be bought with Credit Packs in the store. Especially for less advanced players, the prices for Credit Packs are completely out of proportion. They depend on the player's Career Stars small a8 Stars: For the same price, advanced players get more than double the amount of Credits than beginners. Credits are much easier to earn in-game than Tokens (see Farming), so buying Credits with real money should only be considered as a last resort.
  • Exchange rates:
    Credits cannot be exchanged directly for other currencies, but comparing in-game Credit and Token prices delivers an exchange rate of Ax credits full 1 = A8 tokens full 0.005 (Ax tokens full 1 = Ax credits full 200) for advanced players. Details:
    • Price comparison of Credit and Token Packs in the store:
      • Advanced players: Ax tokens full 1 = Ax credits full 200 (biggest pack), Ax tokens full 1 = Ax credits full 150 (smallest pack) – verified for more than Stars small a8 1,600.
      • Beginners: Ax tokens full 1 = Ax credits full 80 (biggest pack), Ax tokens full 1 = Ax credits full 60 (smallest pack) – verified for Stars small a8 130.
    • Combined Credits/Tokens prices in current Upgrade tables show that Token prices can be calculated by dividing the Credits price by 200 and rounding to A8 tokens full 5, so Ax tokens full 1 = Ax credits full 200.
    • Other: At the end of first generation Festival events, leftover →Festival Coins were automatically converted to Credits with the rate A8AnniversaryCoins 1 = A8 credits small 12.

Fusion Coins

Fusion Coins are a both a random and a premium currency that has replaced →Fusion Points in the 2019 Holiday Update. As they can only be obtained by selling a random currency (→Cards), they become a random currency as well. As the process of selling cards for Fusion Coins is extremely lossy and as Pro upgrades require huge amounts of Fusion Coins, they are de facto a premium currency.

Fuel is used for Time-Limited Events. Every race costs a certain amount of fuel. Asphalt Xtreme and Asphalt 9 use Tickets instead.

  • Unit: Fuel small a8 Fuel Point
  • Cap: The Fuel bar has a maximum capacity of Fuel small a8 10.
  • Spending:
    • Entry fee for Time-Limited Event races. Cost per race: Fuel small a8 2–4, very rarely Fuel small a8 1 or Fuel small a8 0 for training or "giveaway" events, sometimes up to Fuel small a8 8 for events with valuable rewards, for example Festival Coin Packs or Car-specific Kit Cards during Festival events.
  • Earning:
    • Automatic: Fuel small a8 1 every 10 minutes
    • Fuel full a8 Fuel refill: Complete refill of all 10 Fuel Points, granted in Daily Bonus for VIP players and in Daily ads for Non-VIP players since the 2019 Halloween Update. Accumulated Fuel refills are displayed instead of the Token option when a player taps the + icon behind the fuel bar. As only the difference to 10 Fuel Points is refilled, the fuel bar should be nearly empty before applying a Fuel refill in order not to waste too many free Fuel Points.
  • Buying:
    • A8 tokens full Tokens: Varying price for a complete refill of all Fuel Points, depending on how many Fuel Points are missing. The Token option is not displayed if a player has free Fuel refills.
  • Exchange rates:
    • Buy: Fuel small a8 1 = A8 tokens full 6.5, rounded up to integer numbers: Fuel small a8 10 = A8 tokens full 65, Fuel small a8 9 = A8 tokens full 59 (A8 tokens full 58.5), ... The Token price is calculated based on the missing Fuel Points, not on the time left for a refill, so it is a discrete function jumping at every next Fuel Point.

Festival Coins were introduced together with the first generation of Festivals. Each Festival had its own currency, all with the same functionality but with different icons and names. While the first Festival Coins of the 5th Anniversary were named Anniversary Coins and the Halloween Festival used Halloween Coins, later Festivals only used the simplified name Festival Coins.

Besides serving as a real currency, spent Festival Coins also accumulated as a level indicator, enabling players to obtain milestone rewards after reaching certain amounts of spent Coins.

Festival Coins as a real currency were discontinued with the second generation of Festivals where they became mere level indicators to unlock tier rewards. See →Festival Coins (second generation).

  • Spending:
    • The only way to spend Festival Coins was to buy Festival Bundles, a special kind of Pro Kit Boxes available only during the Festival.

    • Completing Festival quests
    • Collecting Coins on race tracks
  • Buying:
    • Real money: Similar to →VIP Points, players would get Festival Coins when buying Credit or Token Packs during Festivals. There were also one-time purchase bundles available giving Festival Coins together with Tokens, Credits or Pro Kit Boxes.

Fusion Points were a subsidiary currency with the sole purpose of selling and buying →Cards. Fusion Points cannot be earned, bought or spent. The only way is to exchange Cards for Fusion Points and vice versa. The word "fusion" is just used to disguise that the transaction is in fact a currency exchange.

As with most currency transactions in real life, this exchange is always connected with a loss. An additional disadvantage is that players cannot directly get Cards for Fusion Points, but only via random containers: There are three Pro Kit Boxes that can be bought with Fusion Points, granting random cards that are only vaguely defined by the concept of rarity.

The balance display of Fusion Points has three sections marking the thresholds for each of the three Fusion Boxes. A yellow bar shows the player's current amount of Fusion Points. An additional turquoise bar indicates the amount of Fusion Points that would be added if the currently chosen card was fused with the Fuse now button. The Fusion Boxes can be bought with the Check it button.
