Is it weird to think that a currency shouldn't increase in value over time?

This isn't my circle of competence but this doesn't make sense. Considering the computing power is going to keep increasing exponentially and so does the population to some extent. The value of cryptos should increase consistently and that doesn't make financial sense. Additionally what happens to the coins that get out of circulation (lost). Can someone explain this to me - how does a currency that increases in value make financial sense, isn't a major point/plus of currencies that they inflate? Do you think crypto can ever become a real/widely accepted currency and stopped being used as an investment/irrational persons gold pyramid scheme (sort of) situation? (Crypto that exist now, I am not talking about crypto as technology and coins that might exist in the future).
