Sorry, did I need to put an /s tag in there? My comment was a criticism of this statement:
we are not trying to organize scarcity
A currency without scarcity has no value.
It's also a criticism of the "Earn 20% more by getting rid of the dev fee!" logic. Value isn't determined by the number of currency units transferred. It's determined by the number of currency units times the value of each currency unit. A blockchain with a good and active development team is worth a lot more than 20% more than one without. Take ETC versus ETH, for example. All of the major devs are on ETH, and that means that the exchange rate of ETH is about 11x higher than that for ETC.
In any case, it doesn't matter. The profitability of mining will equilibrate. If ZCL is slightly more profitable at launch than mining ZEC or ETH or ETC or XMR, people will switch their GPUs from one currency to another until the difficulty changes and they are all making the same amount on all blockchains. If a GPU miner makes $50 a month on XMR, then it will make $50 a month on ZEC and ZCL and ETH as well. The only difference is that with ZEC, the developers get an additional $12.50, for $62.50 total.
All the elimination of the Founder's Reward from ZCL does is say that Zooko and his team's contributions to making the technology possible are not worth 10% of the currency's value. If that is your opinion, that's fine. I will simply disagree with you, and support the people who are actually innovating.
