@RedRum Hey, don't forget, in times of crisis, you can take roadkill if it is fresh. (Eyes should be clear, not smell too awful. Problem is, aviation fuel is leaves a horrible aftertaste for smoking the meat.)
Ok, ETH's gas isn't burned, it is passed on to the miners so ETH is fairly inflationary in that respect since they're aiming for about +18M/ETH year. With some expected bitrot (why u no use ZFS?) or deaths (the singularity is not yet upon us) this might be okay.
@RedCurtis This may be a misconception on my part, but is gas and ETH the same? Isn't gas consumed in the operation of ETH's virtual machines? If it is, then wouldn't the network approach an equilbrium of new ETH vs. EVM operation?
@SafeWordIsCommitment I can see that, BTC has been in-fighting with this problem for a long time--it isn't like this wasn't news that transaction sizes weren't growing to beyond the network's current capacity.
@JohannesFactotum Eth is in the process of eating Bitcoin due to the miner union blocking any changes to the Bitcoin protocols. Inability to adapt could spell an end for bitcoin, despite its price rise.
