First of all, a reminder on the singular purpose of Apoptosis: It is to a DRC what Apoptosis [programmed cell death] is to the cells in our bodies. The sole purpose is to keep the currency supply [cell count] stable. That is all.

Secondly, remember that Expansion will play a major role in the change of all account balances, at least for about 10 years to come, or rather; as long as Tell grows. And it works in the opposite direction of Apoptosis.

This is the static list of Apoptosis Inflation Rates, for each year. It means how much of a given Tell amount dies due to Apoptosis, on a daily basis, and just like with biological apoptosis, the units that die are created anew [in the case of Tell via mintage].

Be aware of the difference between Apoptosis Inflation Rate [Apin Rate], and Apoptosis Factor. The Apin Rate is to regard as inflation rate - only achieved via Apoptosis. The Apoptosis Factor however, is a number [intrinsically connected to a certain duration of time] by which you multiply any given balance, in order to find out how that balance is changed during that given time period.

The first day of the first rate after the test period, is the first day that real Tell was live. For technical reasons we put in two extra days for the first period, bringing the total days of the first rate to 32 rather than 30.

When Tell was almost finished being built, a lot of the focus was on testing and evaluation. This is why you might see an Expansion Rate of less than 1 one or a couple of times during that initial Development & Testing period, The same is true regarding the Apin Rates, that they have different values during the testing period. To put it simply, the rates during the initial Development & Testing period are not included in the ten years [3650 days] of fixed Apin Rates and Phase One Expansion Rates.

After these ten years, the daily rate will begin being adjusted slightly upwards and/or downwards on a daily basis [starting from those 25%], in a search for the rate which maximizes the drive value of the Life DRC Tell, i.e. the rate that maximizes the market value of your daily mintage [or with other words; the rate that humanity collectively considers optimal]. This means, we do not know where the rate will move after those first ten years. Humanity decides that. In any case, after those first ten years, every single daily Apoptosis inflation rate will of course be published in a dynamic register on this page. [For a more in depth analysis of drive value and its importance in Recursive Capitalism, please read NC - a book, to be released, on Recursive Capitalism.]

This means; if the 25% yearly Apoptosis Inflation Rate proves to be either [1] too low or [2] too high, it will after these first 10 years of Recursive Capitalism continue being increased or decreased, day by day, until the optimal level is reached, i.e. the level that maximizes the drive value of Tell according the the world market.

Besides this percentage based Apoptosis Inflation Rate, there is also a miniscule daily linear change of all account balances. The all time mintage balance [A] and the all time transaction balance [B] of every account, is every day brought 0.000001 Tell closer to 0 [negative transaction balances are raised and positive balances are reduced]. This is a simple way to avoid rounding errors in certain situations. However, this change is so small, that even over the course of a thousand years it still only accounts for a fraction of one single Tell.
