Tokenomics of XEN

This part of the book describes meticulously the tokenomics of XEN and all the relations between inflation, disinflation, minting, and burning and the effects they have on the supply. The effect of the burn function on creating scarcity and its implementation in different burning protocols like DBXen, Fenix, and Xenify is outlined in great detail, and other external factors influencing the tokenomics are listed as well.
