Is the token supply deflationary like Bitcoin?
The token supply is not fixed and can increase or decrease via the bonding curve. Put simply, if the supply goes up by one token, so does its price in the bonding curve contract, and vice versa. This makes BZZ neither inflationary nor deflationary. You can read about Swarm’s supply and bonding curve in detail [here](

BZZ utility token should not be purchased for financial gain or speculation. There are risks related with holding and using BZZ token and other cryptocurrency, staking and participating in the network as a node operator. The node may not receive any reward at all, amounts staked may be unexpectedly slashed, uploaded data may become unavailable or corrupt, temporarily or permanently lost depending on the performance of the network during these phases.
