Is cryptocurrency slowly dying? This is a prominent question on many investors' minds as they face the onslaught of venomous vitriol from governments and bankers. On the contrary, there is a rational, academic, research-based argument that the intrinsic value of crypto exceeds that of not only trust-based standard currency but also the utility value of the individual coins themselves. The reason is simple: crypto is not just another asset - its intrinsic value emerges from properties that not only never existed before but were actually thought by many to be impossible - digital ownership, digital scarcity, and the fusion of medium and method of exchange into a single entity.
