The maximum supply technically possible by the Electra Protocol blockchain is 30 billion XEP (see Genesis block). The distribution of coins was:
- 3 billion XEP were reserved for the community as treasury (10%)
- 27 billion XEP were allocated for public use (90%)
The current supply is below 18 billion XEP (December 2021), of which 3 bllion XEP were premined and are kept back by the Electra Foundation for administrative tasks.
This means that around 12 billion XEP (December 2021) can be brought into circulation for its inflation mechanism by supporting staking on the XEP blockchain.
