Fiat and crypto: differences explained
« on: December 23, 2018, 10:19:57 AM »

In today’s market, there are two types of currency available to use, fiat and crypto. Both have some differences along with some similarities, too.

What do they have in common?
Both fiat money and cryptocurrency can be traded in the financial market and used to purchase goods and services. In addition, they have similar factors that control their value: supply, demand scarcity, work, and economic factors. However, while having these similarities, fiat and crypto are intrinsically different.

How are they different?
Taxation, regulation, and tender status. For instance, fiat currency is recognized as a legal tender under the Coinage Act of 1965. This means this is the medium of exchange and is acceptable for the payment of debt, public charges, taxes and dues. On the other hand, cryptocurrency is not a legal tender yet. However, it’s important to note that several countries and U.S. state of Ohio started offering to pay government taxes in crypto.

Fiat currency is always backed by the government. Cryptocurrency operates on a decentralized blockchain ledger. Fiat money is printed under the guidance, permission and control of the central government, cryptocurrency is mined with the help of all crypto users taking part in its creation through a blockchain network.

We MUST move forward with understanding depth of the industry. You can’t reach towards success WITHOUT getting the basic right. So, first we need to understand what Blockchain is and how it operates. Once we crack up these things then only we will move towards the direction of knowing the difference.

Mostly people try to go to step 10 directly, which creates all the problem and leaves them nowhere, so IF we wish to have something worthy reached, then got to do it via step by step thing.
