No.

But it's not going to be a basket of currencies, it's not going to be an SDR, and it's not going to be gold.

I can imagine a few things that are not existing sovereign currencies--maybe something like an energy credit (literal energy, like a gigajoule dollar). I'm not an economist and I don't have the imagination to come up with something truly revolutionary (if I did, that's what I'd be doing for a living right now!).
