Scrap (Ftlgame-scrap) is the currency used in FTL, and is mainly used for upgrading the systems and the reactor on your ship, as well as purchasing weapons, augmentations, systems, crew, drone schematics, fuel, missiles, and drone parts from stores. There are also various events where scrap is required to choose a specific outcome. Depending on your game difficulty your scrap incoming is decreased or increased. On the Lanius Cruiser the second ship achievement, Scrap Hoarder, you must have 600 scrap or more in your storage at one time.
