While the inflationary nature of BUDS helps the token to be highly liquid and be better distributed among users, it also means that more new tokens come into circulation everyday. To reduce the amount of inflation over time, we have in place a deflationary mechanism tied to the production rate of seeds. Every month the production rate of newly minted seeds is reduced. The rate of deflation for the current year is at 5% each month, and will reduce by 1% every year for the next three years until it flattens out at 1% deflation per month every year. This again reduces the rate of inflation over time.
