The intended purpose of the fork is “long-term viability” however I believe that what you get is the exact opposite.
The Bitcoin-like reward with finite supply is great for early adopters but hampers long-term viability. There is a lot of incentive to mine early, but little incentive to mine now and almost no incentive to mine Bitcoin in the future. The elephant-in-the-room for Bitcoin is what happens when those first couple of millions of coins get to market.
All the fiat currencies have exponentially growing supply. Bitcoin has a finite supply. Grin is the middle ground and the most reasonable way to go. If the supply is growing linearly there is no prospect of “huge inflation” in the long term. Prove me wrong.
I believe that the deflation spiral in your fork (and in Bitcoin) is a bigger problem than the (small-in-long-term) inflation caused by the current Grin emission rate. I invest in Grin because it’s emission rate is the best it can be for long term viability. Please don’t fall for this fork. It’s not good.
