However, in contrast to traditional currencies, they are not backed up by a centralized institution and are not connected to a national economy.

Commodities are defined as raw materials or other items such as goods or services that provide value or an economical benefit. Crypto commodities can be understood as digital utility-tokens on a blockchain which represent physical items. Blockchains require time, computer-power and electricity to secure crypto commodities.
