Emission, also known as Emission Curve, Emission Rate, and Emission Schedule is the speed at which new cryptocurrency coins are created and released.

Many cryptocurrencies are set up so that new coins are created on a regular basis, this can be measured by an emission rate.

Sometimes a limit is placed on how many coins will ever be created, this is known as the max supply.

Some cryptocurrencies have no limit and so a small emission will continue, forever.
