Why does NK Pro track two different rates? 

Because there are two systems. The Foreign Currency Won (FX Won) is a unit of accounting and a fixed unit from which the foreign currency price of goods is calculated. It can also be bought in virtual form by placing FX on a range of payment cards.

The Domestic Currency Won (Domestic Won) is an actual physical currency used by North Koreans to pay for goods. It is also a unit of accounting and a store of value. Foreigners are allowed to purchase it in a range of special locations including the Kwangbok Supermarket.
