rippledigital posted a topic in Alt-Coins and Non-Ripple FintechNot new(s), but still a brilliant yet simple idea, IMO, that I just wanted to reshare and see if anyone knows of any progress on, or implementations of, the BitMint concept.

Today, the cost to transact in blockchain-based ledgers is not perceived because these systems receive a constant inflow of money (caused by the growth in the demand for native coins), which pays for the seigniorage incentives that buys security to the network. Once the demand for the coins stabilize, the real cost of a transaction will be pushed to the system's users.
