Fiat Money News

Although the crypto space commonly uses the term, many folks may still wonder, “What is fiat money?” The fiat definition is fairly straightforward: Fiat money, also called fiat currency, refers to currencies put out by governing bodies and central banks. Fiat money examples include the U.S. dollar, the Chinese yuan and the Mexican peso. Governments control fiat, meaning it is a centralized form of money tied to the borders of each respective country, for the most part. 

Different in its design and control, Bitcoin (BTC) is not a fiat currency. Bitcoin is borderless and decentralized, and governments neither issue nor control it. In general, cryptocurrencies are not fiat currencies, although some stablecoin assets represent certain fiat currencies in digital form.
