Most blockchains try to predict complex dynamics far into the future and decide on a one-size-fits-all setting upon launch. Bitcoin is a perfect example for this. The rate at which new coins are minted is scheduled to halve every 4 years, with no regard to the actual market environment, transactional economy or its security factor. All of these change dynamically over time, with the direction and magnitude of the changes impossible to predict. Yet, Bitcoin operates according to its code and has no mechanism to adapt. So far it turned out to be sufficient, however as block rewards continue to shrink over time and the chain value continues to grow, it is very likely that at some point the chain will become compromised.
