Myth: There is an infinite supply of PIVX coins, so inflation will be high

PIVX has a low inflation rate that decreases every year, with 2.34-2.6 million PIV minted every year, and a current coin supply of ~54 million PIV. At least 90% of minted coins are rewarded to stakers and masternode owners for processing transactions and securing the network, and up to 10% of minted coins are used to fund PIVX improvement proposals. Since PIVX holders can stake regardless of how much PIV they own, and staking and masternode rewards are not significantly different, all PIVX users can contribute to the network to earn block rewards, thereby mitigating any reduction in buying power due to inflation.
