The BitCanna mainnet is launched with an initial supply of 382.162.276 BCNA coins. The max supply is higher since the supply will be subject to inflation. Every block, new coins are generated. This process is in place so that participants are rewarded by the network for their services. The nodes in the network are processing transactions, creating blocks and check that all data in the blocks is valid. The BitCanna protocol is designed in such a way that new BCNA coins are created at a fixed rate per block.
