An example
-I can generate power for $5/MWH from gas.
-I can generate power for $75/MWH from jet fuel
-I can sell my power for $50

If their is a shortage of gas and power becomes more expensive
-I can generate power for $100/MWH from gas.
-I can generate power for $85/MWH from jet fuel
-I can sell my power for $100

The price of wholesale power has risen but the jet fuel option is still better value.

You could keep your money in PayPal, in which case you couldn't do a whole lot with it

Sure I could, I could transfer it to another Paypal user at a minor cost, donate to some site I liked, I didn't even have to worry about having to convert my money against some exchange rate.

Same as bit coin then?
