[Bitcoin-development] Finite monetary supply for Bitcoin

Hi all,

I understand this is a controversial proposal, but bear with me please.

I believe we cannot accept the current subsidy schedule anymore, so I
wrote a small draft BIP with a proposal to turn Bitcoin into a
limited-supply currency. Dogecoin has already shown how easy such
changes are, so I consider this a worthwhile idea to be explored.
