*refers to a 🧩puzzle that lends itself to a cipher (some unsecured🔓 function space secured🔐 by an algorithm or quantum phenomena). By definition, its reward function, if any, is backed by proof-of-work or proof-of-space.*

**crypto**/// +Technically, it's the

`proof-of-work`

that makes something **crypto**

.+We assume that such a

`function space`

is `insecure🔓`

(randomized), and **crypo**exists to stabilize it.

As it specifically relates to

*,*

**UUe**lcome**crypto**is a synonym for 'statistical estimation to an actual yield' (¢ent🪙-energy🔋 conversion), as calculated from the ¢ent🪙 formula and its hash complexities. Stewcing helps ensure fitness (ie. core efficiency) [:= data compression relative to spontaneous egg-epp reactivity🔋 ≜ (file size vs. energy usage)].
