The max supply is 92 billion. Why 92 billion? It came down to the variable types in C++. The integer data type in C++ that stores that value has a limit of around ~92 billion, so we chose 92 billion. If we went over that limit, it would force us to refactor a lot of code and delay Lynx’s release. We wanted to remove that additional complexity. With Lynx’s low block reward, we have about ~24 years of life left on the coin which allows for (and encourages) long term stability.
- How can you prove that your electricity costs are so much lower than a typical block chain solution?
- Why is it an advantage that the people who control the Logware code also control the Lynx code?
- Lynx is downstream from Litecoin. Does that mean if Litecoin goes away, that Lynx also is terminated?
- What is the relationship between Logware and Lynx?
- Is the Lynx blockchain less efficient or less secure because it doesn’t encourage mining?
