In simple terms, how does Monero's coin issuance work?
I've been trying to find out how Monero's coin issuance works, but so far, it seems like you need a physics and applied math's degree just to figure out the mathematics behind coin issuance. For example, the mathematics behind Bitcoin's issuance is very simple: The block reward starts at 50 BTC per block, and then halves every 210,000 blocks. It doesn't make a smooth curve, but it is easy to understand. Can anyone explain how Monero's coin issuance work without making it overly-complicated? There hasn't been any simple explanation so far as to how the mathematics behind emission goes. Can someone please ELI5?
