There are 10 galnits in a galbit, and 10 galbits in a galrik. The value of a galrik is set, and cannot be changed unless it is hacked into, meaning that the problems of inflation and deflation are avoided entirely. The average entry wage is about 10 galriks an hour.

Galriks are commonly mentioned and used throughout the Galactian Prime, as they are the currency used there. Towards the edges of GP territory the mentions of Galriks, and their usage, grow less and less. Whilst they can be physically (or rather, digitally) used outside of GP territory, it's almost unheard of as the chances of two groups of people being in the same region outside the GP is extremely low, due to both the size of the GP and the galaxy.

this leads me to ask. how was it decided to resort to a 10 base system in a galactic empire? or is the currency adapted for each race's numbering convention?

It was taken as the closest whole number to the mean of the original five species most common numbering convention.
