BTW, You can split/fork without copying the existing supply.

Also, your point is incorrect because anyone can create new networks too. Is that inflation in your mind too?

I just minted one billion pickle tokens that have absolutely no value until people agree that they do, but if i forked a chain that had value at the right time... like in 2017...

Give me all your pickle tokens or else!

Nothing has value without demand, obviously. Anyone could fork any network, demand and network effect won't magically appear.

if you could retroactively claim your coins because you held any of the original version, then coins were made without the usual "hashwork" associated with the minting of new coins

I can agree there, but i would say that in the instance of a split in which the supply is doubled, and both forks have value and some network effect, that monies appeared suddenly.

I did come to the realization that forks can happen without chain splits while in a cold sweat last night, i will concede that.
