Everyone trades time for money, which then can be given to another person to get something in return. But when money is stored in a fiat currency for the future use, it loses the purchasing power over time due to the currency inflation. If a currency lost 25% of its initial value, this means 25% loss of time and efforts spent to get that money. 1 day (8 hours) you worked and got paid for, today has a monetary value as if you worked 0.75 days (6 hours).
On the other side, when money is stored in deflationary Bitcoin, and its purchasing power increased by 400%, this means getting 400% more value for the time traded in the past. 1 day (8 hours) you worked and got paid for, today has a monetary value as if you worked 5 days (40 hours).
