It is a common fallacy that the US Dollar is the strongest currency. But currently, it is not the US Dollar which is at the top. The strongest currency in the world is Kuwaiti Dinar that, however, despite having the highest exchange rates and money value, doesn’t dominate the world’s currency markets. These currency rates keep on fluctuating just like the shares in the stock market.
