Via the pow difficulty bomb, a hardfork to pos is guaranteed within the next 16 months:

Exact wording:

So, a year on, the network will continue to be useful for roughly 3-4 months, but eventually will reach an ‘ice age’ of sorts: the difficulty will simply be too high for anyone to find a block. This will allow us to introduce pos, perhaps via casper, if it proves itself.Websites that use bitcoin

There will exist ~90M ETH then.

At the present moment, the exact answer to your question is: pos inflation rate is not yet finalized.

However, the lead pos designer – vlad – has mentioned multiple times that his aim is to design a system where pos validators are paid trading fees only (i.E. Zero inflation).

Vitalik mentioned another solution – create just enough inflation to incentivize about 1000 people to become validators and maintain the network.

That’s the most accurate answer at the present moment: vlad, zero inflation; vitalik, just enough inflation.

Either way, it sounds like there will be a dramatic reduction in the rate of ETH creation (and possibly zero).

To be clear my position is not buy.

Because big player can kill your position in an instant, and there no way to know if ETH got -thks to exchange- better distributed with time has big owner will likely spread thier wealth on different adresses.Websites that use bitcoin

Leaving you with investment risk+ big owner cash out unpredictable risk.

And thats IMO too much.

I think a fair distribution would be more like 10% pre-sale and 10 year pow which would have given time for people to get in, spread the fuel around. (pos doesn’t help with distribution)

-if we compare to bitcoin it would have mean 2.1BTC this, I think everybody agree is a massive share of BTC already.-

This might translate in sharp drop in price much more likely than sharp rise.. Making ETH more risky than a fair distributed coin.

I have got mixed feeling with ETH, I am frustrated and also happy not being part of tge pre-sale as the risk is shared by everyone…

(it’s on pre-sale owner interest owner that the coin are distributed.. Espacialy if they are fuel)

But again might be wrong just my opinion..Websites that use bitcoin
