cunicula I think you are the first person I am very close to agreeing with here!
Right now a transaction fee is paid voluntarily to speed up things, my proposal was to tax that fee.
So it WOULD be able to destroy (some) coins!
But thinking about it, more and more I think your idea is good, but instead of a tax, call it a minimum transaction fee, that a lot sounds better to most people
As for the "deflation margin", did I explain it properly? What do you think about it?
Trade able claims is an awesome idea! But you wont know the value of the kind of claims I am proposing before the maturity date is up. And yea you are right about the libertarians
