I think it would depend on the demand from the market and what the coin is addressing. If the coin is divisible would also weigh into the supply. IMO, the best way to regulate it is by participation of some kind. That will ensure that the demand will somewhat run in parallel to the supply.

There is a lot of alternate coins that do these kind of thing so they can increase the value of their coins.

I like the coin wherein it starts as a big supply of coin, but still, it depends on the ICO or how much did they get from the investors. While the coins, it is being reduced little by little making the value higher while it last longer. I dont remember the name of that altcoin.

Lesser supply, bigger demand. This is going to be the ideal supply of a coin. Mostly only millions down to hundred thousands. And the best way to regulate it is by having a very good support and promotion so that companies and entrepreneurs will adopt that coin that you want to regulate. This is one of the important thing to regulate.

I think bitcoin alreayd told you about the best answer. The supply must be lowered below 100 million. That makes the asset will be rarely to find and there are some users had some portion of the asset.
It doesn't make sense some project generate billion coin just for million dollars.  Cheesy

In some ways, I get the impression many coins and ICO's are comparable to derivatives. Supply may not be the biggest factor raised as a selling point. Whatever gimmicks or business model they adopt could factor more heavily into valuation. It might be fair to say there aren't a lot of coins which focus on building real or lasting value. A lot of coins / ICO's opt for something closer to half baked get-rich-quick-schemes. That could be a redundant observation of the finance industry in general.

In terms of supply, the definition of ideal supply can be a contradiction. Ideal supply might be defined as being flexible in some areas while rigid in others. I would say some portions of coin supply should be hard coded and unalterable the way bitcoin's supply has been cryptographically regulated by difficulty metrics & miners. That's the rigidity portion of ideal supply. The flexibility comes in where there are conditions supply might need to adapt to. I haven't given it much thought, its an interesting topic though.

Bitcoin which is the model in which others are going after even though they are claiming to exploit the weakness of bitcoin but the fact still remains that bitcoin supply is the ideal supply and the difficulty in mining it because this will ensue at there is excess amount of it in the market there by crashing the price. Doge quickly comes to mind. Also, there should be divisible units of the whole as this is just the best way to go about it.

Lower supply than demand is the ideal supply for the coin, because its market value (price)  depends upon the high demand and low supply of coin.

I think as long as the supply of the coin is not exceeding 1 billion, it is a good coin for me because i don't like a coin that has a too much supply on its market because it means a slow process of pumping the price because not all the investor or traders will buy a tons of it so it is better to just have an average supply rather than over numbered supply, they should focus on quality and projects rather than supply.

I'd say it should be higher than bitcoin's, so we don't have to use such a small fractions. With a bigger supply the coin's value would go down, but the numbers would look more like what we're used to in fiat. I think most people prefer to count up than down. It's easier to say I paid 100 bitcoins for that than saying I paid 100 mbtc.
That said, the supply of bitcoin is decent and even if 50% of the coins were lost after some time (hardware failures, people taking their keys to the grave) it would still be possible to satisfy the demand. The only problem is that we'd have to be paying with satoshis due to hyperdeflation.

I think so too that this is the case when it comes to digital currency. But I think thus type of coin is giving some investors doubt because they will be buying a coin with that price with uncertainty that it will give them profit.
