  1. this actually answered a lot of questions i had about long term crypto.

    luckily it looks like this will be around for such a long time that, at least it’s my hope and reason for getting into it, it will outclass our current currency system.

  2. One of the questions I had was, “how does a coin retain value if its supply is unlimited?” The basic answer is through the coin being used.

    Using a coin for payments puts it into circulation. *But doesn’t mining more of it cause inflation?* Depends on the coin and how much can be mined per year. If there is no limit, it still isn’t a *huge* issue because once there is enough of a coin in circulation an ecosystem won’t have the need to mine any more.

    But what if a country’s population increases over time or more people adopt the a coin as currency? Yeah, sure more coins may be mined, but at that point (many many years from now) the coin won’t be much of an investment and instead be an actual currency.

    Anyone please correct me if I’m wrong as I’m still learning and would love to learn more.
