That’s exactly what I’m suggesting. Along with other attributes, inflation is required for real adoption. Bad money drives out good.
Bitcoin acts as a terrible form of money partly due to it being deflationary by design. Why would I even consider spending bitcoin for every day items if it didn’t have to? It’s far too valuable and keep increasing the longer I keep it in my possession. Bitcoin is like art, antiques, gold, diamonds. I buy, hold and never spend it. Only collateralise with if I need to. If I spend Bitcoin, then I get punished as it continues to climb in price year after year.
The money that loses value each year due to inflation is the money that I want to spend. Inflation creates a sense of urgency to spent it as €100 won’t buy me the same item that I bought the year previous for €100.
Do you want GRIN to compete/exist alongside Bitcoin as a SoV? That’s a dangerous game for any crypto and the odds are stacked against you if that’s the case.
I’d even be happy to see GRIN pegged to a real world currency to ensure it gets real adoption and acts like paper money: private, fungible and yes, inflationary.
