Bitcoin was made to be mined until roughly 2140. I like that it was made for decades to come while many projects are built for 4 years or whatever.
Personally I do not believe inflation in and of itself is bad, as economies are not static and expand. What is bad is inflation manipulation that is unprovable and not tamper-proof, or when it is too high.
Coin Gecko currently shows circ supply to TS as:
32,056,062,599 / 45,000,000,000
71% in circulation on the 3rd year already seems a bit high.
Does Cardano have to have a fixed supply? A perpetual, provable, tamper-proof small stock-to-flow seems best to me.
Can someone make the decisions behind Cardano's inflation make sense to me?
