Halal money

Bitcoin: Halal or Haram?

I examine the evidence behind the claims that Halal money should be backed by Gold or Silver or commodities or have intrinsic value.
The result of this examination helps determine if there is any merit to the argument that Bitcoin should be prohibited in Islam because it does not have any intrinsic value.
I also touch on the matter of how to preserve the value of money over time and whether or not the ability of money to act as a store of value has anything to do with what money is made of.
