Title: Always look at the coins MAX supply
Post by: FreeStreamer on July 05, 2020, 12:23:00 PM
So there's 6000+ coins out there. Look at the max supply. A coin with a large max supply and rapid emission of new coins will most likely never surge in value. This is because the worlds total capital is divided with so many optional coins. The larger the supply, the more capital it needs to spike in value. Even Bitcoin with a max supply of only 21 million needed massive amount of capital to get where it is now. So any coin with double that, will need the double amount of capital to get to the same place. So with so many options out there if you want good value pump. Look for something with max supply of only like 1 million. (which of course needs to have a utility too to stay in growing demand)

Honestly I really don't see the need for projects to have such huge supply as billions of it, at the end of the day the token price will only need a miracle to pump a bit, and if it does pump if you are an investor better sell and move on because it will take another miracle for the price to move up again,

I don't fancy project with huge supply, I think it is a punishment on the part of the investors, it will take a very long time to see any meaningful increase in price, it is better to have a small supply.

So you are saying that all coins/tokens with small supply will have a huge value cause its easy to insert capital funds on it? Whether its small or big supply as long as the demand is high this is nothing. A coin will surge no matter what its supply. Take a look on xrp, the supply is so huge but it still able to be considered as big marketcap not mentioning the infinitie supply of eth? Its all about the law of demand and supply. Actually you have a point but not all will believe thats this is the only reason for a coin to increase its value.

I agree with your basic point but i think you have too ambitious target of max supply as i have never seen any serious project with a supply of only 1 million coins, i think coins with billions in supply should be discouraged and there should be some limit when it comes to max supply like 100 million or 200 million. I have seen almost all new coins dumping hard that have supply in billions.

No, I'm not saying that. I'm just saying it's more likely because the liquidity required for them to perform like that is much smaller. Of course they also need an actual utility to make sense and to be interesting.

You are right and you are wrong too, coins don't just have max supplies of any amount they want, though some projects don't care about them but as for some projects use case max supply with 21billion is perfect fit and for others it isn't.

They usually do have a cap limit (max supply) determined in the codebase before the crypto was even launched. That was the actual big novelty that Bitcoin brought to the digital monetary and asset world. A guaranteed cap limit, which no FIAT currency has. FIAT has infinite cap limit and can just endlessly print more units. This cap limit can not be changed after launch of the network. 21 million is not a perfect fit anymore in this days market. It was for Bitcoin in 2017, but that will never happen again with that same cap limit because now there is 6000+ cryptos.

Maximum value doesn't really matters because you are going to get the value for each units so more coins means cheaper the price will be. But you have to check whether the maximum supply is fixed or it can be increased, in most of the project it will be fixed or even get lesser because project will burn the unsold tokens.

You would rather say look at circulating supply instead of max supply. ETH max supply is infinite but criculating supply is too low. However, a one million max supply is neber guaranteed the price pump unless it has some usecases because if there is no real demand, price will never pump. In addition, such limited max supply coin can be easily manipulated by whales.

The total value (market cap) is distributed with the circulating supply. The larger max supply and the circulation supply, the more distributed the value will be and the faster the emission of coins the more capital it will require to gain or even maintain a value. So the Max supply and circulating supply reveals to you in comparison to for example Bitcoin how much capital it will require to really gain value.

At least for bitcoin, it can easily be fueled by the community because it's the most preferred cryptocurrency by everybody. Unlike those altcoins that has a massive number of supply limit, they're unlikely to get more value because of the supply. However, there are altcoins that has huge supply limit yet is still getting a good volume and demand due to the usefulness and popularity of those coins.

Yeah look at both. Infinite supply says: fixed stable value. They want ETH to be stable, because the price of ETH effects every function on Ethereum like the ENS domain fees and smart contract fees. You want your domain fees and smart contract fees to be predictable for years ahead, so you can safely plan your enterprise on Ethereum. They will always emit more or remove coins to keep the price stable balanced.

I got intrigued by this statement :
~...
~So with so many options out there if you want good value pump~
I wonder what about DOGE? there's no total supply for that coin. But based on previous prize higher price is $0.02. So, it is not about total supply i guess. But about acceptance. What i believe, although the total supply is unlimited, as long as the community's reaction are positive, the possibility of pump activities is still wide open.
Or maybe i misunderstood with what you mean in your thread.?

Post by: tbct_mt2 on July 05, 2020, 03:02:27 PM
Not only max supply but also many other things. Let me give you some of them:
- Current supply
- Total premined / instamined coins for developers.
- Inflation or deflation scheme.
- Ratio between premined/ instamined coins (for developers) per total supply: if it is high, it is not a good one because developers can dump all their coins and get a fortune before running away, abandoning projects.
- Ratio between current supply and total supply: it will help you to know the coin is in inflation or deflation period.

Definitely, supply is one of the important factors when i see a new project and analyse it for investment and i do take huge supply as a negative thing basically by implementing huge supply the team holds major supply and it can speculate or manipulate market whenever they want, so creating extra bit of tokens do not really make sense for a quality project.

I think the max supply issue is just one of the many reasons why a project's coin/token cannot improve their price much compared to other coins/tokens that much lesser supply, another possible reason is the coin/token utilization, like product and services, for example, the ripple's XRP coin with a max supply of 100 Billion and currently traded at 0.178 cents because XRP is a cross border payment solution it has a mainstream use and demand thats why beside of its huge total supply it was successfully withholding its price and value so IMHO, max supply is not that important compared to the utilization and use case.

Supply is not really important. As long as the project is good and there is a product, I believe that its price will still rise and help the investor get a profit.

The supply is not that important but the use cases and how many people use the product they offer using the coins they have . Same thing with bitcoin if it have many supply it will reduce the value of each coins but total market cap of it is the same since there many people use it now as normal currency and many things now that you can use bitcoin in online purchase or for sending money.

I think the most important is the amount in circulation, from which we can calculate the current market capitalization of that coin. Then we need to refer to its vesting period, usually, it takes a long time for a coin to reach its maximum supply.


Title: Re: Always look at the coins MAX supply
Post by: monineklutak on July 05, 2020, 04:26:34 PM
the maximum supply for a project coin certainly affects the price, look at the supply from DOGE or DENT, they are very difficult to ride high, and very easy to dump, honestly I don't like

That's right, according to each project's schedule, definitely they will need a lot of time to be able to unlock all of the supply. Just care about the current total supply and quality of the project

I cannot totally agree, Do you know that Ethereum does not have a total max supply? Its supply is increasing and it is sitting on the top 2 cryptocurrencies. The success of the project and the ability to spike in not based on supply, it is on the project's dedication, quality, developments, marketing, and the whole idea of course. There are coins that have low supply but a total sh*tcoin so basing on supply does not make sense.

The market cap is distributed among the amount in circulation. To predict the price performance in long term, you need to figure out the emission of coins and then look at max supply to understand how widely capital will be distributed and diluted in the chain.

Yes I know., The Infinite supply of ETH means, like I wrote in an earlier comment, that they are keeping the price stable. This is because the price of ETC effects all functions on Ehtereum. It effects the price of ENS domain fees and smartcontract fees. They need ETH price to be stable so that all these fees can be predictable for enterprises to plan their businesses on Ethereum years ahead.

The supply of tokens is indeed very influential on the price of the token because the more stock of coins the more difficult it is for the coins to pump.
so the maximum supply of coins also needs to be considered before investing.

Post by: Harlot on July 05, 2020, 05:24:59 PM
This is not actually a definitive sign that a altcoin is bound to fail just because they have greater supply of their own cryptocurrency, yes it will be harder to pump or influence but it doesn't mean that it will never go up in value. Altcoins like XRP or Cardano who have billions of circulating supply in their history of existence have pumped up their value to thrice or quadruple they currently have during the crypto market bull runs. This is mainly because whales also take advantage of the bigger supply with the big amount of money they have, this just mitigate these crypto having bigger supply compared to Bitcoin as it technically generates more traded volume when it is bought and sold in the crypto market.

I really don't think it matters anymore if a coin supply is huge or small. We have had some projects with huge supply doing extremely well in the market and others with very little supply struggling. A good example is Xrp which with its billions of supply has actually done very well in terms of price growth and stability. This against a project like curio which has continue to struggle even with its 2 million max supply. The main focus should be the use case of the project and its adoptability.

Nevertheless, lets not forget that lower max supply and/or burn of the asset does not guarantee higher demand (of shitcoin for instance)

Of course it does not guarantee demand. Utility creates demand. That's why I wrote it on the topic.

Well, this is a wrong assessment; a token total supply does not correllate how much value it will possess today or tomorrow; Because bitcoin has 21 million total cap and is trading at over 8000$, does not take away the fact that hybrix token is also 21 m cap and is struggling at 0.5$ in the same crypto currency sphere. Also, etherum with its incredible supply is trading well, and well positioned on the coinmarketcap ratings.

Know this; be it a million token supply or a billion token supply; a good token is a good token, while a bad one is just bad. no buts, no reasons.

Personal I hate huge max supply because I don't see the need for it. It appears more like someone is greedy here. Must of the time the coins with small maximum supply tends to do well in the market than when we have huge maximum supply. For a better performance, I will advise small maximum supply.
It all depends on the demand honestly, a coin can have minimal supply but if no one find the use of it then it as good as nothing, there's always reason why projects developer set that high amount of maximum supply, greedines could be one of them but if the coin have many demands its still valuable.

yes, logically it is true that coins which have a maximum supply of large amounts, will be difficult to reach the highest price. because it takes a lot of money that goes into the coin to pump the market cap and price, also to reach the maximum amount of supply so that the coin price can pump up.

Of course it depends on the demand, but still if the max supply and emission of coins is rapid, it will require an extremely wide and large demand to actually be worth anything. In economy demand is expressed by purchase. Not like in usual context by demanding something verbally.

Maybe I can understand that point. However this is not the only basis as Ive explained it to you. I think its much more important the demand and the use case of such a project. I know the lower supply the high chance to grow. I remember there is a project called trident, its just a community coin and its supply is really low but even so the value still low there are times the projects become valuable but only due to marketing hype, actual use case? Cant see it. Now its dead.

Post by: ScamViruS on July 06, 2020, 01:05:20 PM
This is an important thing. Max supply must be seen before buying any crypto coin. It is often seen that the price of a coin stays much higher even after having a huge supply. There is a huge reason behind this as they slowly sell their hold coins to retail traders. However, max supply is not important in all cases, in some cases demand is more important than supply.

If the project has the ability to do something good in the future, then more people will buy those coins and liquidity will increase. And when the demand for a coin increases among traders, then the supply of that coin cannot affect the market price.

Ideally that should be the case. But then how can you explain the growth of Dogecoin? For DOGE, there is no maximum limit on the number of coins mined. In short, it is not deflationary like many of the other cryptocurrencies and in this aspect it is similar to fiat currency. But that hasn't prevented Dogecoin from becoming one of the most popular coins. As of now, it is having a market cap of $296 million.

That's a bit too simplistic, there are also many coins with real use case but flop because they lack the marketing the devs also need to think more about bringing fame to their coin. People not gonna know your coin magically they need to be informed first, if you can't even make people know about your coin forget all the use case, no one gonna use them.

I don't care too much about the total supply of the project. I am only interested in project and team products. If they have a good project and a good product, I believe the price will keep going up and be valid in the future. But if the project is poor quality and scam then it will quickly die and the investor will lose money

I think there is no issue of total supply, in fact, any project should have a use case, it is more important, in my opinion.
If the supply is less and there is no buyer, then the project will decease soon. It is better to see the use of tokens instead of token supply.

Off-topic: Nowadays, many projects are not for long term hold, sell quickly when you are getting some profit. I have suffered a lot due to this mistake, I hope this will not happen to you guys.

Obviously the first priority for any investor is going to be the project team and idea. But then, the exchange rate would depend a lot on the circulating supply. It is simple mathematics. A particular token with annual additional supply of 1 million would command a better exchange rate when compared to someone with an annual supply of 100 million.

If they have a good project and a good product, I believe the price will keep going up and be valid in the future. But if the project is poor quality and scam then it will quickly die and the investor will lose money

Obviously the first priority for any investor is going to be the project team and idea. But then, the exchange rate would depend a lot on the circulating supply. It is simple mathematics. A particular token with annual additional supply of 1 million would command a better exchange rate when compared to someone with an annual supply of 100 million.
The low supply only makes its price higher than the projects with large supply, I always prefer to choose the projects with large supply because its price is cheap and can easily be pumped up.

I think the project with small supply is not different from the project with large supply. It cannot be asserted that a one million-cent supply project would be easier to raise than a ten-million project.
If a project wants to add value it needs to have many factors, which are product quality, professional development team and project promotion.

Of course Max Supply for any coin is very important and the less the better, but it does not have to be a good coin if its Max Supply is few, the demand for the coin is the most important.
I remember that I bought a long time ago a token named MAC and Max Supply was a little and I expected that the price will rise a lot, but the opposite happened, its price fell very significantly because the demand for it is very little and it was listed in the exchange of weak volume.

Just like what you said, the project needs to do more to raise prices. The supply does not affect too much of the project, it only determines whether the price of the token is high or low in this market

So there's 6000+ coins out there. Look at the max supply. A coin with a large max supply and rapid emission of new coins will most likely never surge in value. This is because the worlds total capital is divided with so many optional coins. The larger the supply, the more capital it needs to spike in value. Even Bitcoin with a max supply of only 21 million needed massive amount of capital to get where it is now. So any coin with double that, will need the double amount of capital to get to the same place. So with so many options out there if you want good value pump. Look for something with max supply of only like 1 million. (which of course needs to have a utility too to stay in growing demand)
Max supply is not the only thing to look out for, I believe max supply shouldn't be a problem of the project if its well crafted and useful, look how valuable Ripple is today, it has a massive max supply and still this doesn't drag it down

If the total max supply of a particular coin is very high, and the demand at the other hand is not competitive in the market, there will be some difficulties with those who are investors, and big investors as a case study. Hunters will dump and take whatever comes out from it, while investors face the loss or hold waiting for the price to rise and dump killing that coin. I think there used to be burning of coins when softcap is not reached, it should be added to hardcap too, to grow the project and make good price in the market too.

It's not. The valuation for each coin still depends on the product that has already made by the team. Have you seen that even the project with a lot of supply can have a better price than the project that issued a low supply? i guess you can even find some in the market.

So you are saying that all coins/tokens with small supply will have a huge value cause its easy to insert capital funds on it? Whether its small or big supply as long as the demand is high this is nothing. A coin will surge no matter what its supply. Take a look on xrp, the supply is so huge but it still able to be considered as big marketcap not mentioning the infinitie supply of eth? Its all about the law of demand and supply. Actually you have a point but not all will believe thats this is the only reason for a coin to increase its value.

No, I'm not saying that. I'm just saying it's more likely because the liquidity required for them to perform like that is much smaller. Of course they also need an actual utility to make sense and to be interesting.
Both all of them have a chance to surge and you are right, most coins that have a huge maximum market supply never been seeing it increase their price but just it keeps low. However, isn't only the measurement and basis if that particular project/coin will likely have a better future or the demand will increase but it is all about how this project/coin will show market potentials.

Its all been in a competition, investors will choose project/coin that seemingly shows the potentiality and gives them the interest. If that is never been noticed by them, it is either has a huge and small market supply, there is no way to see it will grow but it remains devalued.

I am more on this perspective rather than checking the max supply.
If you have no practical use case even if you have very low supply, your project will not going to take off.
So it is important to have real project and active users for your project to thrive.
Those with huge supply but with real application in the market will survive and has the potential to increase its value over time.

I think it's all boils down to the product development and the demand the coin can gather, most of the major top 10 projects have massive token supply and they are doing pretty job in maintaining their token price. likewise, I've seen multiple project that goes with option of low token supply and they are doing bad job in maintaining a good stable price

It will not pump up for sure. A very large max supply or an infinite supply is set so that the coin price can be kept stable. Some coins are designed as stablecoins and they will never pump and spike. You recognize these coins by the very high or infinite max supply.

Yes it does not determine the success of the project, It determines if there is any Return of Investment. It be technically a super success as a stablecoin but it just does't effect the price because the price is designed to be stable.

I am not too concerned about the total supply of the project. I only care about their current circulation tokens and their token unlock schedule. In addition, I also prioritize projects that have products and have a large support community. Those are the factors that determine the price of altcoin

This is also one factor to look at when joining bounties of Alternate Coins. Looking at the maximum supply of Coins will really help you determine on how would the platform work and how would you gain extra coins to make profit from it. Infinite supply of coins are applicable to alternate coins that are able to be mined and has a stable value or even startups can do that but they must make sure that their platform would not fail.

Total supply doesn't matter when it has a useful product. You can see how CRO was going crazy caused by it has already developed a very good product and it has its own exchange site too.
Multi billion supply and high marketcap and it have proven if a product is much more important.

You have a point and at the same time you're sounding like you are having your wrong assumption as well. Just because of low supply, a coin/token cannot have a good future; it may get delisted from exchanges when there are no continuous investors for it. Do not make your investment decisions just because of low supply; this will definitely lead to big disappointment because you are just looking into ONLY supply which must be one of the criteria for good value for one particular coin and there must be other criteria also to be considered for speculating about the future of a coin.

I'm not seeing any differences on considering low supply against considering marketcap. Because both are implicitly denoting the same thing. Marketcap of a coin is being calculated along with circulating supply.

Multi billion supply and high marketcap and it have proven if a product is much more important.
I agree even with multi-billion supply, a coin might have related good value when it is having a good real world application; it means if a coin is capable of addressing a problem of real-world then it might get continuous investor which must be the core reason on deciding the future of that coin.

It is not necessary to pay attention to the total width of the coin. Alternatively, the project can be evaluated whether it is in the right direction or whether the team developing the coin is building a trick. We have seen many projects that have a small display of icons but are dead.

If someone invested in the project just because the supply of the project was low I am sure he would be at a loss. A good project depends on many factors, among factors affecting the success of the project, the supply factor does not really affect too much.

I think the most important is the amount in circulation, from which we can calculate the current market capitalization of that coin. Then we need to refer to its vesting period, usually, it takes a long time for a coin to reach its maximum supply.

The market cap is distributed among the amount in circulation. To predict the price performance in long term, you need to figure out the emission of coins and then look at max supply to understand how widely capital will be distributed and diluted in the chain.
Of course, that's why I said that we need to research about its vesting periods, for the long term price. The most obvious example is XRP, when they unlock millions of XRP every month for teams and organizations, and with that number, we can easily make a decision whether or not to invest.

Well, there is iota of truth here.  We have seen coins with little supply and are no where to be found today.  Likewise, there have been coins of millions in supply and was making it big.  If a project has nice concept and good utility, people will continue to demand for it even if the supply is much.  Some came with the idea of deflationary tokens just to solve the issue of much supply, but 95% of them are dead now.  Concept, idea, utility are very important in any project's development.

It's not so important for me too. Bitcoin will never be widely used, because of it low supply, and some coins aim for mass usage and their max supply is higher. If they become popular with time their price will rise anyway, with any max coin supply. It's important to know what you can expect from some coins and to know what you can expect you need to know their max supply.

The price is formed by distributing the value and market capital among the circulating supply. By finding out the rate oft the emission of new coin in relation to max supply you can get an idea how volatile or stable the coin will be.

That's what I said. Didn't you even read the post? I simply stated that the volatility of the coin can be estimated from the max supply. The larger max supply, likely the less volatile, because the vast max supply evens out the volatility by distributing the value more.

The main point should be the real use case that will be determining how big the impact will be created by the total supply. As you can see some coins have multi-billion supply but they can still make it goes to the moon right now. CRO has proven it can be done with the real use case.

The only way to double the amount of capital is not by intentionally pumping money into the project since it's not a pump and dump scheme but with good use case there will be good demand and this will keep attracting new whales to the project, the more the demand the better for the project

True, the limited supply of coins is always better for the potential price and volume, because if a coin is limited in supply and there is very much demand, then obviously the price will also be very reasonable when in the market.

Not only that, the size of the supply matters too, though there are coins with huge supply that are successful, investors would still prefer to invest in a project with only millions of supply. Of course limited supply or fix supply is better, just like bitcoin, it's a good model to follow for a project to be successful.

Supply though is just one of the factors to look into, but most of the coins that rises high in value are those with low supply, so as long as you believe on the project and you like the supply, you should invest on it as these kind of coins are good for long term hold.

Maximum supply has no effect if the project is good, its price value per unit will be calculated based on the demand high max supply means the price per unit will be cheaper but make sure that coin doesn't have infinite volume in that case only the coin will lose its value if coins are mined or printed by the team.

So you are saying that all coins/tokens with small supply will have a huge value cause its easy to insert capital funds on it? Whether its small or big supply as long as the demand is high this is nothing. A coin will surge no matter what its supply. Take a look on xrp, the supply is so huge but it still able to be considered as big marketcap not mentioning the infinitie supply of eth? Its all about the law of demand and supply. Actually you have a point but not all will believe thats this is the only reason for a coin to increase its value.

I agree with you, the top 2 coins in the market Xrp and Eth has a huge supply but that doesn't stop them from landing in the top 5, it's not the supply but the demand and the platform that a coin can give to the community in short usage, people are checking the supply but they are looking more in the road map and whitepaper and what it can offer to the community

Only projects with shit use case will have to worry about its max supply, it's why new developers have been warned many times never to develop repetitive projects and nonsense use case projects, max supply isn't the culprit here it's lack of good use case

If use case is not good enough then you have to worry about max supply, you can burn off max supply but still this won't give your token good value, all you need to do in bring in new features that will attract investors, I'm sick and tired of too many useless tokens in crypto space today

the maximum supply for a project coin certainly affects the price, look at the supply from DOGE or DENT, they are very difficult to ride high, and very easy to dump, honestly I don't like
They project devs should start burning supplies in every transactions that occur in their blockchain history in order for its value to increase overtime. But there are some cases that massive total amount of supplies does not really come into play and still the prices surge up and maintain it in a high level.

Max supply aren't that important, do your own research on these few examples of mine

1. Curioinvest has total max supply of 2 million tokens and present value is 0.33$
2. ARCS project has 20 billion max supply and the present value is 0.30$ to 0.33$
3. Ripple has 99 billion max supply and the present value is 0.20$

There you have it, what makes max supply so special?? As a matter of fact they aren't, the problem that every coins solve in crypto space is what makes them valuable, better use case equals to better value, that's all.

Even though you are sick and tired of too many useless tokens in the crypto room today, that doesn't mean it's a reason to leave crypto, because you also know which tokens and which are good to keep, and which tokens aren't good to have , so just live everything in accordance with the thoughts that you have formed.

So there's 6000+ coins out there. Look at the max supply. A coin with a large max supply and rapid emission of new coins will most likely never surge in value. This is because the worlds total capital is divided with so many optional coins. The larger the supply, the more capital it needs to spike in value. Even Bitcoin with a max supply of only 21 million needed massive amount of capital to get where it is now. So any coin with double that, will need the double amount of capital to get to the same place. So with so many options out there if you want good value pump. Look for something with max supply of only like 1 million. (which of course needs to have a utility too to stay in growing demand)
How in terms of price, I think the supply must be adjusted to the value, if possible 24h volume calculation is also noticed. In my opinion, just looking at it in terms of supply is not very helpful, whereas we know that the market in the crypto industry has demand that is much different in traditional markets in general. Why did I say that? because we do not know for sure when there is a surge in demand and where there is a surge, even there is also the possibility of a coin that has a supply of more than 1 millions has a higher demand than a coin that has a supply under 1 million.

Yeah most probably, but burning never help some coins who go through the process to attain a good price, I think the emphasis should be more on utility, this is lacking in 90% of projects we have, when there is no utility the liquidity will also be poor, and what is the essence of having so many different tokens that can not provide service through blockchain!

Hence, a project with no actual use case have no business minting a huge so supply, better to have a reasonable supply to prevent the token to appear useless.

If the coin has no good use case that's needed in blockchain technology it won't do any good even if the max supply are in thousands, many projects in crypto space have useless use cases that shouldn't exist on the blockchain that's why they failed to have value

I agree the max supply affects the increase in the price of coins. But demand plays a more important role. With high demand, of course the price
of coins is definitely a pump. Then the smaller the max supply will make the coins circulation a little, then making coins more expensive. There
is also a small max supply but the price does not rise, because there is no demand.

It depends also on the emission rate of new coins. The more rapid the emission, the more it will distribute the total value and flatten the curve.

I can relate with your point mate. In this case the main concern should be on the use case. How much the maximum supply will not give a lot of impact as long as it doesn't have a lot of portion that will go to the dev as the premined coin
The result of their developer can also be a good point.

That's just a small aspect, max supply is not the main factor to decide price of a coin. It depends on many things and main factor is the usages of it, its applications. In term of investment,  large max supply coin surge less than small supply coin but with  large max supply coin you can buy more coins than small supply coin with the same amount of money, so the profit you get will not be different.

I do but not after I looked in their roadmap, their platform and people behind the team, the supply is the least of my concern even if the supply only has 10 million, but if the project can turn out to be useless, usage should be the high priority it is something that defines the project, two examples mentioned by others are Ripple, Ethereum and Doge

I think this max supply issue is vice versa, I've seen few not so good crypto projects with big max supply, looking at the project use case you can easily figure out that the big max supply doesn't make any sense, developers should start looking at use cases closely before releasing big max supply.

The supply is not a vital factor for me to evaluate if the project is heading in a good direction or not. Because everyone can manipulate how much coin they want to release. But they can't manipulate how many people will support and use their services or product. If they have usable product, people will notice it. But if they are just using some sort of front as a use case, in time, you will know how many people will truly utilize their product. So don't always look at the coin's max supply but the actual use case in the market.

The max supply isn't as important at what you would think. ETH has infinite supply so it's just not making sense and if the POS starts, everyone can grow their ETH with enough tokens to stake. But look at its price it wouldn't go drop to zero. All because its the bid of the traders that matters, if any will bid at least $0.01 to buy ETH then it has value, and Id anyone in the market will bid $1 per ETH its going to have a value of $1 and the MAX supply doesn't matter.

Maybe your right but sometime infinite coin can also supply the needs of demand. Take for example the ethereum coin, they dont have fixed supply but were able to manage their base price and market position. It is because their demand is high and used mostly on different use casea like defi, and also transaction fee through their network. I think its a case to case basis, when it comes to supply. It could also be a factor to price surge and dump as well.

Good example that project still moving forward even there's unlimited supplies. It depends from how the team work out and
what are the plans that will provide to attract more investors.

As long as there are people who continue investing to the project it won't turned to zero, price depends from how traders
appreciates and support the coin.

In the cryptocurrency market, it is easy to manipulate each and everything. Along with the maximum supply and circulating supply, the percentage of coins which are on free-float also matters a lot. For example, in the case of Ripple (XRP), some 80% to 90% of the coins in circulation are being held by a handful of the promoters. So these coins are not in free-float. Due to this, an artificial scarcity is being created in the market, which pushes the price upward.

raise from the project as well. And many more I guess not only for this matter anyway.

Honestly I really don't see the need for projects to have such huge supply as billions of it, at the end of the day the token price will only need a miracle to pump a bit, and if it does pump if you are an investor better sell and move on because it will take another miracle for the price to move up again,

I don't fancy project with huge supply, I think it is a punishment on the part of the investors, it will take a very long time to see any meaningful increase in price, it is better to have a small supply.

This is very true, I remember investing in HOT (Holo) for long term and at a point I dumped my bag when price kept going down. The total supply is about 177 Billion and since then, I don't even trade coins with such gigantic total supply, especially when the circulating supply too is massive. Its usually very difficult for price to move up in this scenario, especially with coins having total supply in trillions. Most of their prices are in a range bound market or downtrend.

Not really, that two coins fail to ride high as you said because they are not a good coin from the beginning. There is no vision or clear direction and no unique technology to make those two stands out. Even with low supply, I don't think they will do better.

Having a billion supply dosent mean the coin won't have value. It's what you got he to your project and how you handle it that will determine. Supply dosent affect a projects value. Having a smaller supply will just make it look serious but there are many low valueless supply. A good project will be good without any flaws.

This is one thing that most people ignored when trying to value a project, you can't expect a token with 100 million total token supply to go up like the one that has 10 million token supply. It is just like saying Doge would hit $100 because Ethereum is valued $200.

When a coin is not having a solution to our problems then its value is just a speculative one and in that case, we must look into total supply and circulating supply so that we can predict the future of such coins. But, I guess we do not need to bother about total supply and circulating supply when the coin is addressing a problem we do face in real life more often. Only very few such coins are available, Ethereum must be one of them. Even ethereum is not having any restrictions on maximum supply it has managed to reach 0.11BTC by the beginning of 2018.

Recently when I tried to research about GRIN, I came to know its economy rules like it is having unlimited supply with 1 GRIN per minute kind of emission. It is block generation gap is approximately 10 minutes hence its every block produces 60 GRIN per block which must be making GRIN as a inflated coin hence we cannot expect good value for it over the time.

Post by: irixo10 on July 12, 2020, 08:42:57 PM
I don't fully agree with you. Maximum supply most times doesn't matter because it is not what truly defines the project in question. What defines a project and as such will determine if it will grow in value or not is the use case of that project, their products and services, this is what really matters. That is to say, so far a project have good use case capable of attracting users it will continue to grow. Most projects have huge supply yet they are doing great, a typical example is Ripple (XRP) while most coins with lesser supplies are not doing well. So in all ramifications, once a project is capable of attracting users via its products and services, it will continue to maintain a reasonable value.

I agree with you and this is also the main thing I look for when looking for a project and most of the time I wonder why certain people create projects with very high supplies even though they know that the project they are creating does not have any great use? now altcoins are created out of nothing (without any long-term project) and they use an argument that sometimes makes me think that it is time for governments to severely punish those who create shitty coins because they harm people.

A coin with a large max supply and rapid emission of new coins will most likely never surge in value.

That's wrong, I've seen a lot of coins in the past that surge its value, here are some of the coins.

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/xrp/
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/cardano/
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/holo/
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/tron/
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/pundi-x/

These are just some,, there's still a lot I did not include anymore since this is just an example, so it proves that the supply is not a hindrance for the success of the project if the team is doing their job to develop the project, in addition, we have to understand that there's always a timing for everything, as of now the market is not bullish but in the long run I believe it will be.

on this list there are only altcoins that are worth less than $1 and maybe they will never reach more than $5 and what makes me sad and that there are still hundreds of people who are investing in these altcoins thinking that one day they will have a price of $100 Is they they'll be rich, i've heard this a lot on youtube

I do not understand why people do not care about this. It is a good indicator if the price for a token in a pre-sale is not over-rated. I give you an example, 1 token is sold for 1USD in a token sale, there are 1 billion tokens in supply, to reach this price after a token sale, the total market cap has to be 1 billion USD, that is more than NEO or VeChain market cap - so as you can see, it doesn´t make a sense and probably it is not profitable for you.

I think doge is different from the new projects that have the large supply, doge is an old coin and we can't deny that this is really a quality coin. But those who are a newly built project that has a large maximum supply, I doubt that they can compete with top altcoins in the market.

So funny to see guys commentate on max supply not good, not bad, etc. If your coin does not have usage, it matters nothing if you have a low or high max supply,,, Many altcoins tried "low supply" and then talk about scarcity factors but no one gives a crap if it is not even accepted by a single merchant in the world.

The larger the supply, the more capital it needs to spike in value.
This is relative. Indeed a coin with large supply will need more capital to spike in value, but since the price is lower the gains are much higher. I.E. if a coin is $0.01 is easier to go 5x and get to $0.05, compared to let's say ETH which it will need to go over $1200 to make the same 5x gains. Imagine how much money you need to push ETH to 1200+.

Want to supply a little or a lot does not guarantee a coin project can be good. Actually I think it depends on the expertise of the coin creator or developer in developing the coins they launch. Of course, they can make an interesting breakthrough that can convince investors to get interested in the project.

Too much max supply is not good but not entirely bad, I believe that what makes a token or coin have better adoption rate is it's use case, let's drop max supply thing and focus on real use case, many coins in crypto space has worse use case that's why they are dragging below till today

Hmm.. how many of the altcoins have any real usage, other than as speculative investment? Out of the 10,000 or so altcoins and tokens created so far, at the most 100 or so may be having a real use. Examples are ETH (for smart contracts), BNB (for usage in Binance exchange) and USDT (as a stable coin). Apart from these few dozen coins, the remaining 99% or so doesn't have any real-life use.

We cannot judge based on the total supply of a coin or token, because the most important number is the market cap. Some tokens are created for the purpose of payment, forcing its total supply to be large (like XRP).

Yes. The maximum supply really drags the price of the coin or token down. If users want to buy it and its easily available, of course the price will be less as too much quantity is available for sale due to max supply. If this supply can be reduced, demand will automatically grow and we can see an increase in price.

In my opinion, the quality of the coins is prioritized, there are also many coins which have a large supply and are able to compete with the top coins today such as DOGE Coin.
The quality should have come to the first consideration before trying to determine how good the coin was and it can't be done through the maximum supply as it was not telling us about how good the sentiment, fundamental and community behind the project. Max supply does a small impact only.

The maximum supply and circulating properly will lose its significant in terms of investment perspective  when a coin or token has all the reasons for investors to buy and hold. I mean if the coin or token is attractive enough for some reasons like POS or discount on paying fees or anything else similar to these, then it will keep on attracting new investors which will be more than enough for making it higher value over the time regardless of how much circulating supply or maximum supply of that coin or token is basically having.

I am not saying we do not need to look into the maximum supply of coin like how OP is trying to emphasize. At the same time, we do not need to ignore a coin just for the reason of having massive supply than what we are usually having like bitcoin and any other tokens. We must need to agree that maximum supply is having primary role in deciding value of a coin but not limited to in all cases.

For a real world problem addressing coin or token, massive supply is not a stopping thing by considering how many people are still yet to adopt cryptocurrencies in coming day :).

So there's 6000+ coins out there. Look at the max supply. A coin with a large max supply and rapid emission of new coins will most likely never surge in value. This is because the worlds total capital is divided with so many optional coins. The larger the supply, the more capital it needs to spike in value. Even Bitcoin with a max supply of only 21 million needed massive amount of capital to get where it is now. So any coin with double that, will need the double amount of capital to get to the same place. So with so many options out there if you want good value pump. Look at something with max supply of only like 1 million.
I agree with your basic point but i think you have too ambitious target of max supply as i have never seen any serious project with a supply of only 1 million coins, i think coins with billions in supply should be discouraged and there should be some limit when it comes to max supply like 100 million or 200 million. I have seen almost all new coins dumping hard that have supply in billions.
You have a point and at the same time it doesn't count, say that to ripple who has almost 100 billion in max supply and trading at 0.2$, there are other few coins with 21billion max supply that are trading at 0.25$ to 0.30$, I'd say it's about the team management and professionalism

Coin max supply is something to watch out for, I'm not saying they are entirely bad but you need to know what the utility of the project is all about before investing, some high max supply are just bad to begin with judging from the projects use case aspect
Exactly, but we know the use case of the problem and we understand that the supply is justifiable then we should not be complaining or seeing it as a bad project, mentality of typical investors are all the same, they think huge supply project is a bad project, which is not really as its proven by some successful projects in the market with huge supply.

While total supply may not affect the value of a coin in all cases, in many cases it is an important factor that plays a role in trade. If the coin of the project is a real product or service, then the demand for it will always be there and in this case, the total supply cannot affect such the price. However, if the team members of the project create excessive coins and sell them in excess of the bonus, then the effect on the market value is subsequent, which must be taken into account. So the overall supply factor must be considered seriously in order to analyze the future prospects of a coin as its effect can be seen in most cases except for a few good quality coins.

A very promising utility doesn't help if the coin is rigged with a very large supply so that it requires immense amount of capital to surge rapidly in value. See they are not really stocks. They are currencies. You should rather if possible invest in the promising project companies stock and not in its token. In a currency volatility is often viewed more as a bug than a feature, because volatility and uncertainty of the price weakens its utility.

Yeah, people used to care about the price of a coin too much and forgot about the market cap. There was a time during 2017 peak times when people looked at xrp and other coins like that which worth under 20-30 cents and they said that maybe they should buy that and when it became price of bitcoin they would be super wealthy.

Well, it could never be like bitcoin one day because bitcoin is limited to 21 million and right now there isn't 21 million neither, still getting mined.

So, it was a bad idea and they never considered what the market cap of those small coins would be if it ever reached like 100-1000 dollar levels per coin, that would be bigger than top 30 biggest economy nations gdp combined. Which is why looking at the max supply is number one thing you should do.

When i'm investing in new projects, via pool or via public sale, i always look what the price for the seed round and the private sale rounds were.
In addition to that i always look how big the circulating supply of the coins on day 1 will be, so i can calculate the marketcap at the start of trading.
If it's low (below 1M is great) and the project is solid, i try to invest, if it's 10M+ based on the pubic sale price, i skip that project.

Going by your assessment, many here will miss it obviously. It is not always that way. I have seen coins in billions that did very well and had good runs. Let me illustrate this with ONT (did over $10 with its 1billion total supply) and Curio (less than $2 with just 2million supply) So, you can see that your theory isn't the norm. There are exceptions. I think it depends on what the project is about and hype too.

Yeah, you are right. The max supply of a coin is very important. And it has a very big impact on that coins price. So high max supply coins need more marketcap to reach a certain amount of price. But that doesn't mean that the coin is not ginna give profit. Most of these huge supply coins are at low price and they also could double triple regarding on many factors. But the mac supply is also important when you pick ck a new coin. Caus many projects have hug diff between max supply and circulating supply. So be careful and check every aspect of a coin.

You need to understand the basic feature of that new project to see how their max supply and circulating supply making sense. If that project has a long goal with a sensible case to use their coin, being a high amount of supply or a low amount of supply doesn't mean much, at least for me.

Actually, the supply of any particular coin works in correlation with its demand. So, we can not say for sure that supply is the only factor for price surge.
Take for example xrp, tron, and cardano, they have huge supply, but does this mean the price will go up or down based on their supply variation?
No, it doesn't have to be that way..

Now, YOUengine is an other upcoming project that has huge supply and solid utility. Will this project drop in price, because of its supply?!!
I don't think so! It is all about the DEMAND. If there are huge investors and big demand for this platform from advertisers and users, then its value will go up. Hence, its price will grow too.

Obviously, a good use case on a product from a project is a very important thing to look at rather than keep the coins at a max supply, because we can see the progress of a project through the number of products used by everyone in real time.
Yes, I think the idea of causeing demand by limited the supply is quite old and doesn't work anymore in today's market. Look at the top altcoin on CMC expect ETH and BTC, see any coin stay there just because they have a low supply? Don't count in the new one since their price hasn't stabilized yet.

In the crypto space today, there are many people who prefer coins with less supply and there are others who prefer those with billions of supply. In the same way, there are projects which chooses their maximum supply based on what they are trying to achieve and so on. So what I can say is, maximum supply goes beyond what we think it is, because there are projects with billions supply doing well in the same way there are those with less supply (maybe millions) still doing well. But amidst whatever reason a coin will end up with millions as maximum supply or billions as maximum supply, the valuable nature of that project will still come from how good the team are, how good the use case is and how good the community is, among others.

Most people think HEX is a scam because it's a scam made by a shady individual that is a guy who changed his name to Richard Heart for the purpose of establishing presence on youtube. Does he look like a trustworthy person to you? Does HEX have a real world use? For me the answer to both questions is no.

The OP is both right and wrong.

Wrong :  The number of tokens in itself is meaningless. It affects the potential value of each token, but not the global value of the total supply.

Right : The total supply, the fact it's fixed or increasing, the fact it increases at a fixed rate or not, matters. BTC with its fixed supply is considered a store of value. If the supply wasn't fixed but increased slowly, like gold, it would still work. If you had millions more BTC each year, it wouldn't be a store of value.

We seldom see projects with that supply the lowest I've seen was 5 million but the supply is not a guaranty in the success of the project Tron and Ethereum have billions of supply but look at their standing in the market they are doing great and fine, Ethereum is in the second spot, it's not the supply that will guaranty success there are many factors and platform and usage are just two of the main factors, marketing plays a crucial factor too.

We can use a few succeed coins with low supply to justify its worth but let be real, many coin have a similarly low amount of supply but still fail miserably. Why? Because the main reason for a crypto success isn't just trying to have a low amount of supply as possible.
The total supply doesn't matter a lot in this case but people must try to take a look at how good the development that has already bought by the team for the project. Investors were never seeing the total supply as the main indicator to determine the future of project too.

But with regards to profit, I guess max supply or circulating supply will not vary anymore because we still have a chance to earn a better profit to a new potential project
even if they have a huge amount of supply as we are the first to invest to it and for sure the team has the plan to lessen the supply like buying it back or burning the unused coins/tokens.

Go back to the service offered or the problems the project wants to solve. For example, in a marketplace platform project, where the owner wants to make it easier for users to calculate currency denominations to keep it in round units to shop for one item and their tokens can represent the value of a certain currency. So they prepare a total supply large enough to cover market demand or if the token price has increased.

In this case, the target price in the exchange is not really thought of because they only focus on the convenience of their customers.

It is very important to know the coin specification before we buy the coin, and max supply is one of the crucial information.
Another thing to know is the premine amount of the coin, we won't know if the premine is big and this will make the coin price dump in the future.
In conclusion, we must know what we buy, coin specification is the information we need first.

You're point of view is reasonable here, I have noticed so far that those coins which have massive maximum supply always struggles in market in my opinion those coins which have lowest maximum supply, these are much capable to make huge amount of profit.

Max supply isn't what you should always look at, it's better to look out for team capability and further developments, rather stay focus on the project roadmap and of cause the project real use cases instead

I think it totally depends on the demand of the coin if the demand is very high then the token/coin price will increase as you can see there are many projects in top 100 rankings on CMC which price has 100 times increased since 2016.

I do not really care about total supply of coin, the way I see partnership and backed by whale investor is the best one.
look at to Reserve,TRX, and DOGE (my favorite ones). Their supply is more than 100 Billions but still gave huge ROI for investor

I can take a look but it's the least of my concern because if you look in the market the top coins there do not have 1 million supply and we don't need 1 million or less supply if this will not give us anything but number of it's supply only to become a pump and dump coin.

You gave an insightful explanation using bitcoin and I'm in agreement with your analogy. One major reason why a coin like dogecoin has always been very low in value is because of the total supply. The number of dogecoin is in trillions or hundreds of billion. This has made the value quite small, despite the fact that the market capitalisation is healthy.

The new trend is the emergence of projects with more max supply which are locked and come out with limited circulating supply. Beware of investing in these projects.

Total supply is not always the major issue, rate of emission is the issue, hence be more concerned about circulating supply. If for instance Team coin release is every month, and large portion is allocated to team, then obviously the tokenomics is poor and will always keep the price down. Well, personally I don't buy coins with trillions of supply, they appear more like joke projects to me. Some projects use very large supply and later on burn announcement as strategy to pump their token, but that's a wrong concept IMO.

Supply sometimes don't matter provided the concept of the coin is good. I take IOTA XRP and XLM for example they were the first billions of coin I knew then I was always careful to trade them, a day came IOTA pumped so much.

Max supply of the coins it not too important for me. you can see some coins that have unknown Max supply, but they still have a good price. like doge coin. this doesn't mean that a big coins supply will become a dead coin or a low coins supply will have a good price.

Some of them might actually be genuine, but most cannot be trusted. However, if the general mindset of people is that it is unfavorable, then, there needs to be a change. It is better to be mindful of such project.

It the dev was putting a very long vesting period and it can still be tolerated but the different thing will happen when it was unlocking its token to be dumped into the market. This is happening with the curve project that was getting dumped by the token that owned by the dev.

Yup,max supply is a very important scale for a coins price
 The price of a coin depends on many factors like project, partnership, backed by which fund, exchange listing and max supply is one of them which matters very high. But not only max supply is important when you check a coin you should check it's circulating supply also. After all this things comes more two things volume and marketcap. So this is very important that when you buy a coin check all this details before invest in.

This is mostly true for most of the tokens, but there are of course exceptions as well. A lot of people get scared when seeing that circulating supply is 1% of the total supply, but they are not aware that there could be different mechanisms behind it and those locked tokens could be used for in-app/service functionalities and being burned constantly.

The very reason why you need to do your research as it can bring accurate information before  you do your investments.
Many people failed understanding the reason behind, just like what you have said, there are allocations that's intended for such purposes.

Knowing this will let you not to worried just incase the project have big supplies you can still consider it if there's really good usages.

Yeah, max supply is very important so we know what is the value of the coin in the future.
Some coin developers may create more coin in circulation, this kind of coin is what we must avoid to buy,
always check every details and updates about the coin we bought to anticipate the worst possibility.


Title: Re: Always look at the coins MAX supply
Post by: Smitty Werben Man Jensen on September 06, 2020, 04:31:09 PM
true, that was also my research before investing in an altcoin, because the max supply greatly affects the future price,
and comparing it with top altcoins that have the same max supply is equally important

Honestly I really don't see the need for projects to have such huge supply as billions of it, at the end of the day the token price will only need a miracle to pump a bit, and if it does pump if you are an investor better sell and move on because it will take another miracle for the price to move up again,

I don't fancy project with huge supply, I think it is a punishment on the part of the investors, it will take a very long time to see any meaningful increase in price, it is better to have a small supply. ;D

No, you do really have that wrong views or presumptions about those project who do have big supply.If you do make up calculations then when it comes to growth then it is really just the same.It might just look a little bit smaller since the value is really comparable to those coins or projects who do able to reach thousands or hundreds of dollars compared to those who just value on $1-10 but to think off on the rate of growth.
Ex. XRP and TRX, ADA. These projects do have that humongous supply but why it did still able to get a spot on the top? Basing of on its value it does reach out or equal out on how much those low-supply
coins able to reach.

Unfortunately the three coins that you mentioned have indeed had good development and many are buying and supporting them so that they have a high price, if the supply is burned even less it will make the price go up again, so from the max supply and its development will be the key success in a project.

Looking at maximum supply is not enough, it is necessary to see tokennomics summary and how the coin will be marketed from time to time.
I only invest in projects with moderate supply and the percentage of coins for their operator and partner is less than 40%. If they hold too many coins, it will be a disadvantage for investors.
The number of coins distributed must decrease over time. If increasing, the risk of loss is very large.

 Honestly marketcap is enough, you do not have to look at the max supply to realize that a coin is valuable or not, if you look at the market cap that would be possibly enough for you to understand how much it worths. Obviously speaking if it is a new coin that is not on any exchange yet, you can't check the market cap, they will give a price and you will have the max supply and you can calculate from that but it doesn't mean that price they gave would be the price when it hits the exchanges, more often than not the price will definitely fall.

 Check the marketcap, see what people are paying for it and see what the rank is, if you got all these three you do not need anything else for investment, for obviously price reasons, you have to check a million other things first but if it comes to checking the max supply, that means you are already far ahead or too early and with max supply you are not getting the full picture like market cap.
