To allay some concerns from investors. It is important to consider that ethereums own tokenomics were(are) inflationary initially. Initial inflation fueled rewards mechanisms for protocol participants ensures greater equity in distribution of a given token and as discussed already can potentially fuel growth of the protocol.
Even if FLX were to experience some short to medium term price depreciation this is ultimately irrelevant to the long term value of the protocol. The inflation schedule proposed isn’t even 100% of the previous total supply. If investors are eyeing a top 100 market cap ranking for reflexer in the long term, than any minor volatility the inflation schedule may cause is noise.
Should the inflation schedule drive growth overall price appreciation would produce outsized gains making the minor supply increase a non-factor for long term holders.
With marketing to degens. It is a good idea to make reflexers metrics as readily understandable as possible. Perhaps that means omitting specific explanations of how the protocol works in favor of others that are more accessible. This said, in terms of developer documentation it is critical that all relevant information be maintained and or explained.
Meaning, should an analogy with SAI make sense to use in developer documentation that analogy should be used. The actual documentation and technical discussion should never cater to people who are not willing to put the time in to understand the history and progression of the ethereum ecosystem of which reflexer is part. Demonstrating an awareness of that history is at least part of what lended reflexer legitimacy to begin with in my opinion.
All said the new proposal has my full support and I think the above 3-6 month trial period for the inflation schedule is a good idea. Leaning towards the 6th month timeframe because 3 months may not provide enough data.
