An asset, commodity, or currency that maintains its value, and does not depreciate too much over time.
Store of value refers to an asset, commodity, or currency that does not depreciate or appreciate wildly but largely maintains its value over time. This is considered one of the fundamental characteristics of exchange symbols, such as money. Thus, precious stones like gold are considered good stores of value because their worth rarely decreases over time, even though they seldom increase.
Traders can sell their assets or commodities at a greater price soon if they possess assets or commodities with a good store of value. As a result, they can engage in long-term trading without the risk or fear of losing money.
