Well, the last time you responded to anything about it was on revision 2 before I had really laid down the foundation.

"I won't fault you for trying, but I can't agree that artificial attempts to suppress the cost/value of coin creation are worthwhile."

That was what you responded with in a PM, I don't remember what I said originally or how I responded, but it is a statement borne on the back of bitcoin's monetary policy without understanding mine. Status quo bias, et al. I believe you are the one that politely refused to consider. Even calling it artificial, as if bitcoin's monetary policy is anything but.

I wish this would work but you just cannot control the market like you want to. Take a look at RS and his bait and switch methods for 32->5 SC reward drop. Price is 0.009 now but still hashrate is declined and less profitable than before etc.

The natural way to do P2P currency expansion is to award new coins proportionately to those who hold existing coins. Duh.

I advocate demurrage to discourage hoarding. How a positive interest in accounts can discourage hoarding?

2 different forms of free-money: Freicoin (free of basic interest because it's perishable), Mutual credit (no interest because it's abundant)
