With Hydra, the term "total supply" is not just a random number. It is a direct representation of the actual economy and utility of the whole system. On one side block rewards inflate total supply and mint new HYDRA coins, while on the other side, 50% of the transaction fees are being burnt on the protocol level in parallel to the block rewards, which cuts the total supply. A unique constant battle between the two economic streams in the same system that yields a predictable and attractive economy for stakers, while ensuring no price degradation occurs due to inflation. A market-driven approach that determines the tipping point between inflation and deflation and ensures the whole system is adaptive to the actual economy and actual usage and not the other way around as is the case with alternative existing blockchain economies.
