While fiat currencies and fiat-pegged stablecoins backed by fiat provide a stable unit of account and an effective medium of exchange, they are a poor store of value. The United States Dollar, the reserve currency of the world, has decreased in value sixfold over the last 50 years. This has resulted in a huge loss of purchasing power. On the other hand, real estate has proven itself as a stable and appreciating store of value. During the same 50-year period, the average sales price of a house in the United States grew from $27,000 in Q1 1970 to $383,000 in Q1 2020.
