OK, let me tell (or teach, for some) you how the total coin is calculated:

1st, look at this function

1st function calculates the regular pow payout, and the 2nd calculates the superblocks.

Now, block 1 = 2.5 mil coins (was a mini IPO I think)

block 2 - block 19200: 512 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 256 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 128 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 64 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 32 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 16 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 8 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 4 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 2 coins/block

afterwards: 1 coins/block

now the pow will be cut off at 1-2 coins/block.

Next, look at the superblocks: superblock

- Every 3 hours there will be a block with 4X normal payment (initial 2048 coins)

- Every day there will be a block with 16X normal payment (initial 8192 coins)

- Every 5 days there will be a block with 128X normal payment (initial 65536 coins)

So at initial phase, the 1 block day

1 day = 960 * 512 + 8 * (2,048 - 512) + (8,192 - 512) + 1/5 * (65,536 - 512)

= 491,520 + 12,288 + 7,680 + 13,004.8

= 524,492.8 coins

Total = 524,492.8 * (20 + 10 * 0.5 * ( 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + ... ))

= 524,492.8 * 10 * (2 + 1) = 15,734,784 coins

This adds 2.5 mil mini IPO,

On top of this, you can calculate the PoS, PoS is difficult to calculate precisely, but you can estimate max possible value. My estimate is that it is under 50 millions as devs of Supercoin said.

Simple math, isn't it?

1st, look at this function

int64_t GetProofOfWorkReward(int nHeight, int64_t nFees, const CBlockIndex* pindex)

and thisQuote

int64_t GetProofOfWorkBonusRewardFactor(CBlockIndex* pindex)

1st function calculates the regular pow payout, and the 2nd calculates the superblocks.

Now, block 1 = 2.5 mil coins (was a mini IPO I think)

block 2 - block 19200: 512 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 256 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 128 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 64 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 32 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 16 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 8 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 4 coins/block

next 9600 (10 days) blocks: 2 coins/block

afterwards: 1 coins/block

now the pow will be cut off at 1-2 coins/block.

Next, look at the superblocks: superblock

- Every 3 hours there will be a block with 4X normal payment (initial 2048 coins)

- Every day there will be a block with 16X normal payment (initial 8192 coins)

- Every 5 days there will be a block with 128X normal payment (initial 65536 coins)

So at initial phase, the 1 block day

**average**coin is:1 day = 960 * 512 + 8 * (2,048 - 512) + (8,192 - 512) + 1/5 * (65,536 - 512)

= 491,520 + 12,288 + 7,680 + 13,004.8

= 524,492.8 coins

Total = 524,492.8 * (20 + 10 * 0.5 * ( 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + ... ))

= 524,492.8 * 10 * (2 + 1) = 15,734,784 coins

This adds 2.5 mil mini IPO,

**total PoW = 18.2 millions**.On top of this, you can calculate the PoS, PoS is difficult to calculate precisely, but you can estimate max possible value. My estimate is that it is under 50 millions as devs of Supercoin said.

Simple math, isn't it?

Questions?

**I can explain each and every number if needed**

maybe a dumb question ...

Total = 524,492.8 * (20 + 10 * 0.5 * ( 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + ... ))

why there's a 0.5 there? I got all the rest.A good question, because 524,492.8 is calculated based on 512 coins/block, the next term is 256 coins/block = 0.5 * 512 coins/block, and starting 256 coins/block it is 10 days halve period. That's why it is 10 * 0.5.
