Interesting pieces of monetary terminology

After some recent research I ran into some facts about some of the terminology we regularly use that I thought were very interesting. Now maybe I’m just a bit behind the curve but this was news to me….

According to invesopedia,
Currency can be defined as the following- an asset that maintains the following properties: a medium of exchange, a unit of account, portable, fungible, divisible and durable.

No surprises there

However the defition of money is as follows:
Money is a currency (has all the above features) but also acts as a STORE OF VALUE.

Money is a form of currency. But currency ain’t no money.

Huh fancy that…. So really btc should fall into cryptomoney, not cryptocurrency. But I guess it doesn’t have that ring to it.

Never again will I consider fiat as money.
“You owe me some money for that burrito, but If you don’t have sats I suppose ill take some currency”

Let me know if this is news to you or I’m just an idiot

  2. Learn where a term is being used. If it’s in a contract, it should show the definition. If it’s in law, there must be a cite or it doesn’t exist.

    If it’s in The News, the term means … whatever …
