I was looking for an ecological cryptocurrency and heard about NANO who sounds very promising.
In chapter "IV. SYSTEM OVERVIEW" of the whitepaper "Nano: A Feeless Distributed Cryptocurrency
Network", the capitalization of the system is described as the sum of all account balances, which will never exceed the initial genesis balance:
The system is initiated with a genesis account containing
the genesis balance. The genesis balance is a ﬁxed quantity
and can never be increased. The genesis balance is divided and
sent to other accounts via send transactions registered on the
genesis account-chain. The sum of the balances of all accounts
will never exceed the initial genesis balance which gives the
system an upper bound on quantity and no ability to increase
However, I couln't find anywhere what the upper bound of the capitalization is, i.e. the maximal number of NANOs --those released to accounts and those still in the genesis balance.
So, where is this defined and what is the maximal number of releasable NANOs ?
