Take the current calculated supply of ADA as of this posting: 31,623,214,353 ADA
Take the k parameter ( ideal number of pools): 150
31,623,214,353 ADA / 150 = 210,821,356.47 ADA Saturation Ideal
That is to say, that the ideal number of ADA staked in a pool is exactly equal to the ADA Saturation above to be given the greatest chance of optimal return on ADA. More or Less ADA staked than the above, will result in suboptimal returns over time.
However, eventually there will be 45 Billion ADA. If we…
Take the Maximum Supply of Cardano: 45,000,000,000 ADA
Take the ADA Saturation Ideal: 210,821,356.47 ADA
45,000,000,000 ADA / 210,821,356.47 ADA = 214.05 new ideal number of pools (k’ parameter)
Will the Cardano system adjust the k parameter, ideal number of pools = 150 toward the k’ parameter (new ideal number of pools = 214) in the future?
