Although now not backed by any government, cryptocurrencies are very different from fiat currencies, the values of which are inflated due to the constant money supply provided by central banks-compared to a specific number of bitcoin in circulation that is fervently supported by individuals and traders, in spite of its high volatility and risks associated with hacking. Called "Bitcoin as Money", the paper predicts that Bitcoin will climb higher this year, improving on its record performance in 2017.
