NEM as a new economy symbol, should be regulated and appears to be formal and serious.
Why don't we ignore the f**king Chinese tradition which even myself, a Chinese don't care a damn, and stick to the origin 4 plan?
What is your rationale against changing other than the number 4? Look at the grander scheme of things. Don't just look at the leaf in front of you. There is a forest out there. Don't believe is one thing. Not giving a damn is another. Respect is another.
Let's take it seriously.
People value the price of something most due to their previous experience.
They would compare this one to that one and any anchor they've got in the past.
Why is bitcoin so valuable? By setting its amount exactly same as the gold, the founder smartly set an anchor for all the people buy it. They would link bit coin to gold subconsciously, that's how it work and why it's so valuable.
If we really want to increase the total value of NEM, we shall first find an anchor for people to judge the value of NEM.
My suggestion is that we should set the amount of NEM to something of real value in the real world.
Gold is a good choose, yet it has been used by the very first coin bitcoin.
Diamond sounds more precious, the known diamond reserves is 2.5billion CT.
If we set the total supply to 2.5 billion, we may indicates that NEM should be as valuable as diamond.
As a conclusion, we may end up by getting a total supply of 2.5 billion.
