Legitimate reasons for minting/inflating ICP

Hey everyone,

During my search to understand the arguments for and against an NNS treasury, Funded Contributors, and trying to solve funding problems for my own projects and others’, a core question seems to be if there are legitimate uses of inflation of ICP by the NNS, outside of node operator and voting rewards, and even with an inflation cap. I ask for your voices to be heard in this Twitter poll on the matter:

If you have more thoughts you’d like to share here, please do.


IMO, not a good time to ask investors to give up some of their rewards. I would formulate this question (together with the NNS Treasury idea) once we are in a more comfortable situations.
