If the USD continues to expand at its current decade-long pace there will be more US cents than Satoshis within the next ten years.

Currently there are about $ 0.008 of US M2 money stock per Sat (~$ 14,000,000,000,000 / 1,700,000,000,000,000 Sats)

If the US M2 stock continues to expand at around 6%/yr like it has for the past decade we should achieve 1 US cent per Sat within the next ten years, with my current estimate falling just before the halvening-after-next that occurs in 2025/2026.

Current monetary inflation rates for each are USD ~6% / Sats ~4%.

Here is a chart of US M2 money stock growth since 1980, provided by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

Why did they have to expand the nonce value range?

My understanding is that at a certain point, once hardware passed the 4 GH/s level, the 4 billion possible values for the nonce became insufficient in bitcoin mining, because a good rig could exhaust them all in less than a second, and then had to wait until the next second for the timestamp value to change and then try the next 4 billion.

The thing I don’t get, though, is why they couldn’t adjust the timestamp in increments of less than one second? What about milliseconds and nanoseconds? Why not adjust that input instead of the nonce range?
