Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
..wouldn't that resourse become de facto hard currency?

No. Money is not some natural product of human society. If the monetary economy breaks down and can't deliver live essentials it won't necessarily be replaced with a new one of the same kind. It's just as likely that money would loose all meaning in face of rationing. Or in the face of collapse of society.
