I just wondered what you guys think about voting on inflation. BTSX and NuShares allow to manipulate money supply by the users, but parking or burning is not necessary to do so in my opinion. I think there is some innovation that Reddcoin can provide once we get to ReddID that would make Reddcoin stand out even more from other currencies and pass over more power to the users.
Inflation like with Reddcoin is not a problem, in fact, sometimes it is needed e.g. to make people spend their money. Traditionally, this has been done by a central bank and the money owner had no means to act against those decisions (but maybe voting for a party that they would expect to change money policy of a central bank - depending on the country but also in general, this is no real democratic strategy). By allowing to vote for an inflation rate from within the client this eventually allows the users and owners of the money to decide upon inflation. There may be times in which lowering inflation would make sense. Users will understand that and get into discussion about what would be the right money policy.
Of course, manipulation the inflation rate will raise doubts due to the intransparency of the process no matter to which cryptocurrency it would be applied. With Redd-ID implemented Reddcoin would have a relative advantage if manipulating the inflation is tied to owning a Redd-ID so the full process is visibly connected to identities within the network.
While this is certainly highly complex in the implementation it seems to me one crucial step to turn (any) cryptocurrency into real money, because once a currency scales up, money policy will become more relevant.
Hoping for an interesting discussion!
