How Can Cryptocurrency Hold Its Value?
Cryptocurrency is a type of currency, and like any currency, its value depends on what it can exchange into in the market, or its market trading value. To hold its market trading value, it needs to show that it does worth that value. That’s the reason why Federal Reserve holds 8,000 Tonnes of Gold, to back its printed and other types of currencies in the circulation. That’s why we have P/E Ratio (Price-Earnings Ratio) in the stock market, to evaluate the value of a stock.
Cryptocurrency needs to have its utility and substances to hold its value.
Ethereum offers the perfect foundation to build utility for cryptocurrency. Using smart contract, a board range of utility applications can be embedded into the blockchain framework, offering a wide range of usages for the coins, connecting cryptocurrency to the rest of the world.
What’s the best substance that holds value? Is it gold or diamond? What’s more precious and valuable than diamond or gold?
We are all human beings; we care about ourselves.
It takes generations to give birth to a child. It takes years for a child to grow. When your baby is born, when you hold that tiny pinkish bundle of flesh in your hands, you gasp at how light it weighs and you realize how precious and fragile life is.
Human is far more precious and expensive than gold, diamond or other things in this world. As long as human race continues, our lives have value. Each generation holds the value of all previous human generations.
Human accumulates and increase its value over time.
Human asset, human creativity, innovation and ideas exist in an intangible way, only become visible, tangible and transferable when these intangible assets are instilled and transformed into tangible goods. Before a person accumulates enough knowledge and skills, and before his or her product finds its product-market-fit, there is little-to-none liquidity of his or her tangible and intangible assets.
On the other hand, cryptocurrency is easy transferrable. Using blockchain, the transfer record is highly visible and tamperproof.
