# Managing assets

Many interactions with the Filecoin network require FIL to process. This page explains the different denominations of FIL, how to store it, and how to aquire it.

# Denominations of Filecoin

Much like how a US penny represents a fraction of a US dollar, there are many ways to represent value using Filecoin. This is because some actions on the Filecoin network require substantially less value than 1 whole FIL. The different denominations of FIL are:

Name Decimal
milliFIL 1000
microFIL 1000000
nanoFIL 1000000000
picoFIL 1000000000000
femtoFIL 1000000000000000
attoFIL 1000000000000000000
