A few different times now I've read articles that said somethign along the lines of this: https://news.bitcoin.com/bitcoin-solves-runaway-inflation-by-undermining-trusted-third-parties/

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that is automated by a consensus network algorithm. This algorithm, which was predetermined by creator Satoshi Nakamoto, has a set supply of bitcoins that will be distributed over the long term. This number is currently set to 21 million units of bitcoin.

I was under the impression that 21 million was THE total number of bitcoins that would ever be generated. Not "currently set to" 21 million.

So is this just inaccurate reporting?
