PAL mining update, supply of PALM miners has been hard capped and miners have been burned!

in Palnet3 months ago

Following our new distribution model for the PAL token we have decided to take a look at the supply of miners and make a few changes.

As announced in our PAL Whitepaper Update 60% of the inflation is now going to the mining pool and is distributed to those who stake PALM and PALMM! 30% goes to rewards for keeping your PAL staked. Initially there was no cap on the supply of PALM and PALMM was capped at 10,000 miners.

We understand that the infinite supply of PALM makes purchasing miners less attractive so we decided to create a hard cap of 100,000.

PALMM remains capped at 10,000.


All remaining miners have been BURNED! The transactions are here:


  • PALM now has a total supply of 100,000 at a cost of 33 HIVE
  • PALMM has a total supply of 10,000 at a cost of 100 HIVE
  • All excess miners have been burned

Since PALMM has a 4x mining rate it's a better deal, so we are keeping the remaining PALM off the market until all the PALMM are sold. You can purchase fractions of PAL miners so if you only want to spend 33 HIVE (or any amount really) you can buy 1/3 of a PALMM and have a bit more power than buying a PALM. There are also often good deals on the secondary market!

Remember to stake your miners to be part of the mining pool!

As always feel free to hop into the PALnet discord if you have any questions!

I remember for the longest time, there were no PAL miners on the market whenever I checked.

Hmm, so much for getting in early. Ah well, another life.

dublup is not even at 100 oracles (there isn't 100 people with 10k stakes PAL) and the bright idea is to make it that much harder to attain 10k pal without buying?

Bold move.

The plan was to give away PAL for 2 years and some people hold it instead of it throwing it away for like $0.0001 each. Capping miners doesn't make accumulating PAL any more difficult. There's only a certain number of PAL being minted per year and it doesn't matter if 1 miner is running or 10,000 miners are running, the same amount of PAL gets printed and split amongst the miners. If anything, this just made it easier to accumulate PAL through mining, but that's not required either. 30% of inflation goes to just staking and holding PAL. The point was never to make anyone buy PAL, but we can't go back in time and make people not dump for 2 years.


Yeah, that...
