Why do we have ATP and not cytosine/guanine triphosphate?

Why does it have to be Adenine?

it doesn't
Depending what level your studying at depends what you learn about
I only knew about ATP at a level but in the first week of uni we did GTP and I'm guessing the others might come up at some point
Depending which mechanism you are studying depends which is used and it just so happens the ones you've seen all use ATP
