Fiat has nothing of value behind it. It has value because people use it and trust it to conduct transactions. Once it was moved off the gold/silver standard it lost all value.

Cryptocurrency is backed by something tangible, (Blockchain Technology).

Huge difference between something that has no inherent value and something that does.

What are the  advantages to invest in cryptocurrency rather than fiat currency?

...I'm not sure how you'd "invest" in fiat currency, unless you're a friend of forex trading.

If you mean advantages of cryptocurrency investments vs investing in classical stock markets / bonds: I guess higher growth potential, little correlation between crypto and classical markets allowing for hedging opportunities and -- depending on your personal background -- lower barrier of entry. Oh, and of course a higher degree of sovereignty, assuming you handle your crypto yourself. The downside of crypto being a high-risk environment, both in terms of volatility and scams should be clear from the get-go as well though.


Considering the fact the market for cryptocurrency are red tide and how will it recover?

In time. Assuming it does.


What is the fastest liquidity in terms of daily volume? Please share your thoughts and ideas thank you.

Liquidity depends on the stocks and the coins you trade. Fastness depends on whether you have direct access to one of the stock markets, which usually doesn't come cheap. If for trading stocks you have to go through a broker like pretty much everyone else, then trading crypto is usually much faster. That is, crypto trading offers more of a level playfield than stock trading.

I think I get what you're saying, but I'm not sure I'd go as far as calling "blockchain technology" tangible ascribing inherent value to precious metals and cryptocurrencies. Obviously the inherent value of previous metals and cryptocurrencies is higher than that of fiat currencies but still its valuations stem from their rarity rather than their inherent properties.

Pretty much what HeRetiK said. If you're asking us what the advantages are of investing in cryptocurrencies, then you shouldn't invest because you don't know much or anything about cryptocurrencies at all. If you did, then you should be able to answer your questions yourself.

What I always suggest to people new to this space: study. If you're not willing to, then forget it. Invest in something else you understand instead.

Fiat will crash in the future, crypto is either way better, invest but before do lots of research not to regret in the future.

That wasn't the point of tether. Tether wasn't made to "invest" in fiat. It's just a way of tokenizing it for traders/investors to have easy access to a sort of a hedge or a "safe haven" to protect the traders and investors from the volatility. The current market situation is a perfect example on the use-case of tether.

[...] Invest in something else you understand instead.

Note: This applies to classical markets as well, albeit brokers and banks are usually obliged to prevent you from buying assets beyond your experience and risk profile (at least in Europe). Not that this prevents the willing from bad financial decisions (or banks from pushing questionable mutual funds on the uninformed). In short: Know what you're buying.

When you say tangible it is referred to something that can be touch?
Moreover fiat currency exist because of centralised system made by the government so it has its value and never lost its value because people trust it on day to day basis.

At the moment all cryptos are really low priced, so I think it is better to invest in crypto than stay in Fiat because all the coin prices are probably going to go up and you will make more Fiat comparing to any way to invest with Fiat. I cant imagine bitcoin going Lower than 6 or 5k. Think about it, im putting all the Fiat I have got in cryptos right now.

What are the  advantages to invest in cryptocurrency rather than fiat currency?

Investing in FIAT currency you mean forex trade? Forex is manipulated more, bitcoin is global, harder to manipulate.
You shouldn't listen to advices like that, you should research it yourself if its worth to invest and WHY. Why is the question most people that invest dont ask themselfs, they hear about cryptos much and then invest, without researching why, then they are vulnerable to sell instead of HODL.

 Oh Hi thanks for the response. In this era, crypto is now becoming popular and I would like to test how is it going. Its true that investment requires skills and knowledge to aim greater heights. What do you mean by HODL?

Not Velkro, but here you go.

Investing in the cryptocurrency markets in general doesn't require skills per se, but it requires a lot of studying to help you decide which coins/tokens to invest on; because a lot of coins/tokens out there are scams.

HODL is a misspell of hold. Hodl just became a meme just because some guy in the past made a topic here on bitcointalk and typed in "hodl" instead of hold. Pretty much means that you buy bitcoin or other coins/tokens, and you just simply hold on to it for years end.

The HODL topic from 2013 if you're interested: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=375643.0

Look like English is not your native language. If you taking crypto currency as an "investment" because everybody else is investing then stay out.
Crypto Currency is in red tide and same happen with stocks too, so basic fundamental of recovering remains the same. so it is also possible that they do not recover too as happen with some stocks.
I guess daily trade volume of 110K  Bitcoin (you can multiply 110 *1000* price of 1 bitcoin in you local currency)


At the moment all cryptos are really low priced, so I think it is better to invest in crypto than stay in Fiat because all the coin prices are probably going to go up and you will make more Fiat comparing to any way to invest with Fiat. I cant imagine bitcoin going Lower than 6 or 5k. Think about it, im putting all the Fiat I have got in cryptos right now.

What you are telling is not the investment, it is just a plain greed.

Kind of a weird question.    You are posting this to a cryptocentric forum.  Obviously people are going to tell you to invest into crypto.

You can't really invest in fiat.  You use fiat to invest in whatever you want, from stocks to real estate to beanie babies.


Like it or not,  crypto is highly speculative and highly volatile.   Despite what anyone tells you,  investing in crypto is extremely risky.   However,  greater risk also means greater reward.     If you go into this investing money that you consider lost,  you'll enjoy the ride and learn a lot.   Don't get greedy and give it a try.

Firstly you need to understand what exactly you want. To save money or multiply them.
If the goal is to save money, then it's better to invest in fiat. If the second one, you can try to invest in crypto.
The first option is good because you're practically 100% secure your fund, it will bring you no surprises.

Thanks for you thoughts mate, I’am also considering crypto since it is most likely trend today and high volatility. I can say that its fun and interesting to learn. All for the best!

Investing in cryptocurrency is a really great decision. It has helped many people make a good amount of bucks. And this is even one of the best times to buy. Simply because the prices have fallen relatively low. But you must get to know what you're getting into. Calculate the risk and decide for yourself if it's worth it. Don't base your choices off non-substantial variables. Don't invest because it is the thing in vogue now. You might end up losing a lot of money. Get proper information, watch videos, read books and articles before you put in your money. It's valuable afterall.
