  • Why is inflation important? What is the motivation to introduce inflation into token designs and banking systems?

  • What is the criteria to decide whether a token design should include inflation?

  • How can inflation be implemented in the token design of a blockchain project? Could we apply the traditional approach of inflation in central banking to token design?

  • What kind of benefits and vulnerabilities can inflation bring to the token design? Are there any potential attacks that could be introduced and how can they be addressed?

  • Which existing projects can be analyzed as examples?
