Is the current adjustment strategy regarding the upper limit of GHO too conservative? If you want to reach the upper limit of US$1 billion, how long will it take to adjust? Will it take many years at the current pace? GHO currently only ranks 31st in terms of issuance in the entire stablecoin market. How can GHO develop rapidly and allow more people to use it? Is it a more important issue?

In the past GHO struggled with peg issues. To counter them the GLC was established and is closely monitoring how and where GHO is being used. To make sure it is staying at peg, the cap has to be opened step by step and then again be monitored to be sure everything is fine.

The higher the mcap of GHO will be, the bigger the cap raises can be too. As it is getting more stable and more liquidity.
So in the beginning it may be that the cap raises are small but the higher it gets, the bigger the cap raises will be. And soon there will be GHO on a L2 (which is currently being voted on). This will make sure GHO can reach 70-100m pretty fast.
