PetroDollar - XPD

Oil will continue to dominate the primary energy mix for the next 25 years, with demand increasing to almost 100 million barrels a day. Natural gas will see the strongest growth of any fossil fuel, with demand growing on average 1.429% per year.

PetroDollar is a peer-to-peer digital currency designed to deflate with relation to the world crude oils reserves. PetroDollar has a approximate 1:10,000 relationship to barrels of oil still existing in the ground, thus creating an analogy of the USD/OIL trading pair. Every transaction(Tx) broadcast over the PetroDollar network will be charged a transaction fee to be destroyed in line with oil depletion. Transaction fees are destroyed autonomously, at an organic rate based on a mathematical model of the oil market. PetroDollar has a current fee of 1.429% of the amount transmitted, increasing to approximately 15% in year 2045.

PetroDollar developers reserve the right to re-evaluate future destruction patterns in order to adapt them to real-world oil market dynamics as history unfolds. All changes from the base design will be justified by appropriate statistical references and computations which shall be provided.
