There are still rumors and FUD going around about extra tokensales and more. But Dan said it again today on Telegram:
Clear as it can be. So how many coins are out there anyway then?
538 million to be exact. And it will become 1 billion somewhere in June 2018. Every day 2 millions new tokens are released in an ongoing ICO. You can bid for them using the EOS ICO contract. Or you can just buy them on a exchange.
And when the ICO is over the EOS Blockchain will be launched. And the number of tokens won’t grow with more than 5% per year. So after the EOS Blockchain goes live, 50 million new EOS tokens are created in 12 months which are payed to the block producers. This is why using a Dapp on EOS will be free. The block producers aren’t paid by you but by the network itself.
