PIP-5: Update Paloma Inflation Parameters for TestNest-12

PIP Name: PIP 5 - Update Paloma Inflation Parameters for Testnet-12

Status: Proposed

Type: Parameter Change

Discussions-to: PIP-5: Update Paloma Inflation Parameters for TestNest-12

Created: 10/20/2022

Simple Summary

This proposal updates the inflation parameters from the default Cosmos SDK parameters for the long-term stability of the network.


Lower inflation parameters of the Paloma Chain for Testnet-12 so that we have the same inflation parameters that the flock enjoyed on Testnet-11.


Paloma needs a good tokenomics model that balances inflation/emission, validator incentives and other token holders’ valuation stability. The objective of this parameter change is to update the economics of Paloma so that the focus on fee revenue generation from compute and storage activities becomes a priority for validators on Paloma.

Specification Overview

Update of the Cosmos-SDK parameters as outlined in the technical specification below.

Technical Specification

Paloma Proposed Parameters: Lower Inflation Parameters from Cosmos defaults.

Cosmos SDK mint:
InflationRateChange: 0.04
InflationMax: 0.07
InflationMin: 0.03
goal_bonded: 0.670000000000000000
Max supply: infinite

Cosmos-SDK parameter changes for inflation are standard and should make this update straightforward. No chain restart will be required.

About Paloma

Paloma Protocol is a Cosmos-SDK blockchain protocol custom-built for omnichain communication that allows permissionless controls of any contract on any chain. Built by Volume, Paloma delivers the world’s first intelligently scheduled and automated smart contract transaction execution for the Cosmos ecosystem.
