The motivation for this design choice is network security. In a proof-of-stake blockchain, the ledger’s security is linearly correlated with the percentage of participating stake (that portion involved in block production). What the price correlated minting achieves is a design in which those token holders not actively participating (either directly or through delegation) in securing the network do not participate in any price appreciation of the asset which they hold. This strengthens the incentive to participate in block production, boosting the network’s security, which then in turn, according to analysis provided by the Fat Protocol Thesis, increases the total value of other assets (currencies, commodities, etc.) that can be hosted on the Topl Blockchain.
