The maximum number of Filecoin (FIL) coins that will ever exist is 2,000,000,000, which is known as FIL BASE. 55% of the FIL BASE is set aside for storage mining, 15% for a mining reserve, and the remaining 30% is set aside for various other development projects. The coin allocation methodology used by Filecoin aims to increase both long-term and short-term network participation while applying counter-pressure to mitigate FIL supply shocks.
