Something to think about:
Typically value is the output of labor and capital, both of which are energy intensive. In the simplest case, a baker makes a loaf of bread using ingredients, equipment and her own labor, all of which use energy or are the product of other forms of energy. When the baker sells the loaf for money, the money represents the stored energy that went into making the bread. This energy can be unlocked when the Baker purchases some goods or services, such as house painting, by paying the painter. The energy in the money is now released in the form of time, effort, equipment and materials of the painter. Money works exactly like a battery. The battery takes a charge of energy, stores it for a period of time and re-releases that energy when needed. Money stores energy in the same way.
Today, with fiat its most important function "store of value" is missing, due to inflation. The baker makes the exchange with the painter (its personally exchanging energy,labour,time).. but the underlying barter tool doesn't represent that.. it's just a piece of paper with no actual human energy,time associated with it.
with gold our accumulations of wealth make sense because our time/energy is being exchanged with an underlying transactional chip that's extracted from the production of gold (i.e energy, human time ect) which makes all things neutral < on top of all the other reasons why gold is real money.
