I'd like to create a Stellar token and would like to use it as shares for a startup I'm working on so the whole idea is to reward early investors in the ICO with a fixed yearly dividend so inflation looks like a good option. Is that even possible?
This is possible according to the stellar blog:
Inflate token supply in a predefined schedule using pre-authorized transactions
Issue a dividend
In step 1, an issuing account is created. This is the account that can create tokens and send them out. But, notice in the end of the article (step 6) they lock the account, so that the supply is limited. If you want to be able to create inflation, simply do not lock the issuing account.
