Fiat (money) is simply the signal which most closely mirrors the state of energy surplus or prosperity. The contiguous and growing stock of money is the sum total of human prosperity, a reservoir of energy at rest which reflects our ability to do work in the future. Like energy itself, money cannot be created or destroyed, but merely conserved.
Throughout the course of history we have seen many attempts at forms of fiat which have succeeded in being a unit of account, medium of exchange, or both; but we have never witnessed anything other than precious metals withstand time as a store of value while simultaneously being a unit of account and medium of exchange.
Over the course of time, however, in our modern era the rise of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have never been more promising.
Cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange electronically created and stored on the blockchain in which the use of encryption control is for creation of monetary units, and verification of funds. Miners confirm transactions. They perform a process of confirmation without the transaction is not considered legitimate.
