“The gold and other items of value placed in Egyptian tombs was the very first cryptocurrency”

"Cryptocurrency usually doesn’t involve any ancient Egyptian crypts, but there have been several jokes. “I refuse to jump on the cryptocurrency bandwagon and instead will only pay in cryptcurrency, offering coffins, sarcophagi, catacombs, ossuaries, bone dungeons, tombs, and mausoleums in exchange for goods and services” was posted on Twitter on December 5, 2017. “Why did Lara Croft raid tombs? She was looking for crypt-o-currency. Ha ha ha haaa ha haaaaaaa ha ha ha haaaa ha haaa haaa. #cryptocurrency” was posted on Twitter on January 5, 2018.

Wikipedia: Cryptocurrency
A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to secure its transactions, to control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of assets. Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies.

Bitcoin, created in 2009, was the first decentralized cryptocurrency. Since then, numerous other cryptocurrencies have been created. These are frequently called altcoins, as a blend of alternative coin. Bitcoin and its derivatives use decentralized control as opposed to centralized electronic money and central banking systems. The decentralized control is related to the use of bitcoin’s blockchain transaction database in the role of a distributed ledger.

I do not invest in crypto-currency. But I do invest in crypt-currency which is basically what I call money I steal from tombs.

I also initially misread “cryptocurrency” in this article, and now I’m imagining Indiana Jones casually raiding tombs for private keys of long-dead civilizations.
