I agree, there must be a negative carry on holding RAM to discourage hoarding. Looks like the automated gradual increase of RAM supply that Daniel Larimer proposes can serve as such a “usage fee”. However, it seems weird that block producers would add more RAM automatically, without corresponding increase in market demand. Thus increasing the cost of…
