Ethereum: Buterin proposes to increase the Staking Rewards

Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum, proposes to increase the Staking reward for the upcoming Proof-of-Stakes (PoS) algorithm-implementation.
In a post on GitHub, the on 20. April was published, was the co-founder of Ethereum to the amount of ETH should be paid to the Punting, once Ethereum is switched to PoS. According to Buterin, this amount should be higher than what was previously proposed.
Ethereum is currently working, such as Bitcoin and Litecoin, with a Proof of Work algorithm that requires computing power in the Form of miners to validate transactions. The users have to pay the miners a fee to coin the TRANS to initiate actions, while the miners are for the production of new ethers responsible. However, the PoW has its drawbacks, the biggest point of criticism is the high energy consumption by the Miner.
The Proof-of-Stake is a method to improve the efficiency, the Ethereum developers in the next 16 months for the conversion of the currency. In comparison to the Mining Proof-of-Stake used as an incentive system that is based on the fact that users want coins in your Wallet””. The more Coins a user has, the more they contribute to the network functionality and will be rewarded with a payout. Similar to the dividends paid to certain shares to the investors, the Stake of a regular compensation in proportion to the number of inserted coins.
Since Ethereum is, however, in the process of Transition to a PoS-algorithm, the currency with decisions such as the percentage of the coins apart, and should be forgiven for Punting. The proposal Buterin provides for the creation of 2,097,152 Ether per year, if 134.217.728 ETH are involved and for validation of transactions. The result of an annual dividend of 1.56% for investor a small amount after a number of currency standards, but the reward is also intended to avoid the introduction of a strong Inflation would be.
Justin Drake, Ethereum researcher, said in the GitHub comments with his consent to Buterin’s algorithm. With 32 million stacked ethers, referred to Drake as the ideal number for the maintenance of network security, investors can expect a base yield of 3.2%, with the annual rate of inflation of Ethereum is around 1% – much lower than the average U.S. Dollar inflation rate of 3.22%.
When it comes to 2^25 ETH in the long run on the game (~32m ETH), a strong safety. Under such conditions, the base inflation ~1% and the base rate of return ~would be 3.2%. Suppose each Shard consumes an average of 1,000 ETH of Gas per year (about 100x less than Eth1 today), half of the gas, then the Inflation would be ~0.5%, and the return of the Validators ~5%. Feels healthy!
In addition, the proposal has received mostly positive reactions on Github and Reddit, after he was released. Previously, the members of the Ethereum Community had expressed concerns about the attractiveness of the original Proof-of-Stake reward structure, as you are the opportunity costs for the lending company as BlockFi, which currently offers a 6.2% annual rate of interest on the Ether, and the hardware cost incurred for the maintenance of a validation node, acquisitions.
