In times of war, it seems that cryptocurrencies don’t pass the reliability test. And the question arises: if they don’t pass this test, how much should people rely on them? Is it safe to save in crypto? Is it better to keep in fiat? Or, as any kid can tell, precious metals rule in tough times like these?
