FIAT MONEY


Currency that a government has declared to be legal tender, but is not backed by a physical commodity.

The value of fiat money is derived from the relationship between supply and demand rather than the value of material that the money is made of.

Traditionally, most currencies were based on physical commodities such as gold or silver, but fiat money is based solely on faith.
