Just trolling – but perhaps it’s still worth doing.
As stated acne Buterin about his proposal to limit emissions Ethereum, which was conceived as a “meta-joke”.
He stated that he initially just wanted people discussed the advantages and disadvantages of the proposal but now believes that this idea is worth more serious consideration.
Offer 960 for improving Ethereum (EIP960), published April 1, showed is that to limit emissions to 120,204,432 Ethereum units, twice the original quantity sold of the cryptocurrency in 2014. In connection with the fuzzy monetary policy of the cryptocurrency, EIP960 it is suggested that the limited emissions can provide “economic stability” Ethereum.
No matter, I thought this proposal as a joke, said Buterin Monday in his Twitter account. Because “the proposal was formalized in the appropriate section on github, and the arguments are the real arguments”.
If the company believes that the limited issue is a good idea and that EIP 960 is a good way to do this, then we need to accept the offer. If the community doesn’t think so, you should not do it. Does not matter whether it was a joke or not.
If the community wants fixed supply and people believe that the EIP 960 is a good way to achieve that, then it should adopt the proposal. If the community does not, then it should not. This is true regardless of whether or not the original intent was in jest.— Vitalik “Not giving away ETH” Buterin (@VitalikButerin) April 2, 2018
Buterin also said that about 20 percent of its messages are a rip-off of the Tron project, entertainment blockchain startups.
However, based on community feedback, Buterin said that “he now believes” that the developers should seriously consider the issue of limited issue.
