A somewhat polemical term for a currency backed by a tangible commodity such as gold, silver or platinum. Sound money has an intrinsic value, but is more susceptible to deflation than fiat money. Many countries used sound money throughout most of their histories; however, most countries today use fiat money and have since the United States left the Bretton Woods System in the 1970s. The term "sound money" is often used by those who favor its reintroduction. The more common term is hard money.
Given the current fiat money system is on a path towards its own destruction it is not surprising that there has been increasing talk of a monetary reset.
The FedNow Service will be available to banks in the United States and will enable individuals and businesses to send instant payments any time of day, any day of the year through their bank accounts.
The target launch date for the service remains 2023 or 2024, with a more specific time frame to be announced after additional work is completed.
The FedNow Service, alongside similar services provided by the private sector, will modernize the U.S. payment system and bring the benefits of instant payments broadly to communities across the country.
Russia, for example, can take its energy profits and Rubles to purchase the currencies of friendly countries like China, India, and Turkey to rebuild its reserves outside of the USD.
The old world is slowly but surely turning irreversibly away from a USD-dominated currency system toward a multi-currency and multi-FX pricing model.

One possible solution is that central banks use unrealized gains of the gold on their balance sheet to write off sovereign bonds, providing debt relief to their governments.
Revaluing gold to write off bad debt would require central banks to set a floor price for gold.
If a central bank uses its revaluation account fully, the gold price ideally doesn't fall back or this central bank will incur unrealized losses.
As such, the central bank would need to stabilize the gold price, which is a form of a gold standard.
