yes, I am glad you got the sequence.

It will hit a limit, but then it will enter another mechanism, sort of a composition of networks, I'll not provide much detail of this one because it is not implemented nor tested yet.
But the idea spins around having each network of (say 10000 nodes) taking care of a fraction of the address space.

yer, per cycle. not one, well, there exist a 'root' crypto called gas.
the range is the whole 64 space (No 21M cap).
gas is used to take transaction fees and to control the bloating of the address space charging a fee on each account every cycle. (maintenance).
The problem to address is the creation of infinite accounts at 0 cost for the troll.
Accounts are consuming gas and if they run out of it they are destroyed.

Remember this system is not meant to be immutable because I consider immutability a compromise on privacy.

If, after extermination, the need they used to cover (registry, law, economy,..) is left in the wild they would rebirth again and again.
So replacement is more appropriate to me. but ok.

I dont believe in delegating my political capabilities, whatever they are, to a 3rd party, if that makes more sense.
How about you?
