As many of you are aware, the Ravencoin roadmap states that "the cost to create assets will be 500 RVN to create any qty of an asset."  However, after the dev AMA and and the latest meetup, there has been some discussion on this topic.  Should the cost to create assets increase or decrease over time, should the initial cost be higher or lower?  

The RVN cost is not set in stone yet, so let's get a community discussion going on the asset creation cost.  Please provide the reasoning for your response so that we can brainstorm some ideas.

Could it be made a set fraction of the block reward, like in the original proposal it would be Blockreward/10=500 rvn

With this it would scale over time as the block rewards gets lower.

It can be done, but it trends towards 0.  Does it make sense to make the cost only 2 RVN after 8 halvings (32 years)?   This would continue to drop to zero RVN at ~140 years.

It is possible to set a floor if that solves the issue.

IMHO, A better option would be a percentage of outstanding coins with a floor as Tron said above.

Before i can give any opinion; I'm still confused about the big picture; I wonder how RVN, other than trading, will gain value.  It cannot be just designed to be a gate keeper, like a GoDaddy web hosting platform is it? There has to be other value that I am missing.

I'd like to see a hard cap of 1,041,715,000 RVN burned (1000x the Satoshi Coins). This would continue our tribute to Bitcoin. Then have the burn rate equal %0.0001 the remaining burn "pool". Starting burn would be 1041.715 with the second being 1041.714 then continuing to decrease from there.

The burn % could be tied to the block reward value if we wanted to burn more faster and slow it down later (accounting for the increasing price and usage of RVN).

Right now, with 500 RVN being cheap $25, if most Americans (300 Mill) grabbed a personal token 'address' for 500, and they get retired, that is 150 Billion coins...more than the float or designed outstanding.

Probably some different math scenarios on how many coin will be burned in every halving period, and what will be the circulating supply at different periods.

Like how many possible Assets can be made each year?

Should the amount of possible assets to be created each year be fixed, so there is liquidity to actually use rvn to pay asset holders?

We should have a plan for scale ability for a scenario were asset creation really takes off.
