I’ve just recently started learning about cryptocurrencies in general. Been enjoying learning about this project, but I’ve only just begun, so apologize in advance if this is a stupid question.
I read about how Bitcoin is going to address the problem of miners not wanting to mine as the amount distributed gets halved too many times. Something like a commission, I guess, to get those last coins out.
At any rate, it made me think about what happens when the last safecoins are distributed? With bitcoin, we don’t NEED miners, once they are all mined. But we do need motivation for people to share their storage space, even after the last coins are out.
Do farmers still get paid even after all the coins are distributed–like out of the pool of coins which are spent on using storage?
I’m sure this is a simple fundamental misunderstanding of the network on my part, but I’d appreciate anyone who could set me straight on this.
