why atp is called energy currency of the cell

ATP(adenosine triphosphate), that is present in the mitochondria is called the energy currency of the cell.This is so because it provides energy for various chemical and bio-chemical reactions taking place in our body.this reactions are very essential for the timely maintenance of our body,so ATP plays a vital role in our body being the energy currency!!!

ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is called the universal energy currency. ATP is a high energy molecule that is used in many different reactions throughout the cell. You can make and use ATP, like dollars in currency, and some reactions might need more than others, like some items cost more than others. It is said to be "universal" because nearly all reactions use it as the energy source...........!!!!!!!!!!!
