The ARCC Inflation Schedule will be 7% of the current total circulation supply and will run for 67 years.

888,888,888 ARCC with 7% Annual Rate


7% was decided upon as a constant that represented growth but not an unmanageable increase of supply.

For reference, Bitcoin’s annual supply inflation was 3.65% pre-May 2020 halving and now stands at 1.8%.

Most central banks’ currency supply was about 2% pre-2008 financial crisis. As an extreme example due to quantitative easing, the 2020 US money supply has exceeded 23% historical supply.

3. Use of Funds for Inflation New ARCC Supply

For Example: YEAR 1

7% increase of 888,888,888 = 62,222,222.16 ARCC


50% of the 7% new supply is allocated to the Social Proof of Work Pool, with another 10% going towards staking pools as a form of interest for existing ARCC holders — totaling 60% for community/ecosystem growth initiatives.

Thus, really only 2.8% of the new supply will directly end up in the secondary markets through operational and software development spend and the actions by the ARCC Reserve.

The disbursement of the new supply would be manually approved and executed by our custody providers, Custody Digital Group,

After year 5, the disbursement will be on a set schedule and dictated by a smart contract holding all of the remaining supply.

4. Governance Schedule:

ARCC Reserve will move to an open distributed governance model over a period of 3 years from Year 5–8.

This will be done through three levels of governance, on the executive, council and general ARCC holder level.

Please note: This document is subject to change before the final distribution of all current circulating supply of 888,888,888 ARCC.
