Inflation News

Inflation as it relates to money means the devaluation of a payment vehicle amid the rising cost of goods and services. The term usually refers to fiat currencies, which can lose value when a government expands the supply of dollars in an economy. Venezuela saw its currency lose significant value in 2018 during hyperinflation — an exaggerated form of inflation. When it comes to cryptocurrencies, however, inflation works differently. Many assets, such as Bitcoin, have a maximum supply programmed into their code, which can prevent a loss of value due to added supply. Bitcoin does entail some level of inflation, as more coins are released into its circulating supply through a set and predictable mining schedule, but maximum supply sets definite limits on BTC inflation.
