The issue is as the users decide.

Some alt coins are designed with inflation built in, some with
deflation, some with intention for stability.

When one particular construct is hacked outside of its foundation
intention that can of course be argued to be theft, at the very least
"change of contract", and although some would say "just a bug
bounty", others might take significant exception to said bounty.

All these early years events are demonstrating interesting
exceptions, events, deltas to intentions which here and there
motivate further action, new coins etc.

In principle "money inflation", be it 10% or any %, or money
deflation, ought be clear at foundation of any coin, and due to
compounding de/in flation, is inherently difficult for much of
"educated" population to properly comprehend the consequences, thus
comes across as generally deceptive.

Can a coin in/de flate based purely on population head count, or some
other "stable" metric?
