  • Included in @lopp 2018 stats on commits & contributors.

  • Some valuation commentary:

    Su Zhu@zhusuTo support a $500mill mcap on Grin in 6 months, the market would need to absorb $2.7mill/day in Grin issuance/inflation (higher than ETH, and more than 50% of BTC issuance). What's the idea behind trying to hypermonetize something that was designed to avoid hypermonetization?
