This is a base currency for all stores. Do not change if you do not understand what will happen.
Changing of base currency will not change your base prices for products.
You will need to review and adjust all the product prices if needed. Base currency exchange rate (System → Localization →Currencies) will be set to 1.0000 and all other currencies exchange rates will be adjusted with respect to the new base currency.
