I am looking at Tenx token on the ethereum platform: https://etherscan.io/token/TenXPay

Here's what I understand, total supply - 205,218,255.9485

Now when I go to: coinmarketcap.com/assets/tenx/

It tells me 104,661,31 in circulation.

So my questions are:

  1. Any ideas on why the total supply is not rounded up? Something to do with the code?
  2. How do I find total token sold during the ICO? I see the balance by going to:


and it shows 49% supply held by a single account. So should I assume only that the 51% supply has been sold and rest is still held in the account? Will it be true for other tokens too? Because QTUM shows me:


  1. How do I find the token creator address? Will it be same as the highest token holder?

  2. Any ideas on how do I pull this info for NXT and OMNI platforms?

  1. The token balance is not rounded up because that is not what the creator defined when instantiating the contract.

As shown here they chose an initial supply of 205218255948577763364408207 with 18 decimal places. I.E 205,218,255.9485 tokens.

  1. You can wait until they release a detailed report. They say they will do here. That link you posted shows an allocation but assumes that at this point all the tokens have been distributed.

Each token will have a different distribution model and your best bet is to read their sourcecode, and their PR to discern what they have done.

  1. This page says the contract address is 0xB97048628DB6B661D4C2aA833e95Dbe1A905B280.

On this page you can see that the contract creator was 0xd43d09ec1bc5e57c8f3d0c64020d403b04c7f783.

  1. NXT and OMNI have nothing to do with Ethereum.

  • I understand NXT and OMNI are different platforms, I am just wondering if someone can point me to a similar break down on those platforms.

    People on here are unlikely to know about those platforms as this site is solely dedicated to Ethereum. If this answer helped you, please click the check mark. Aug 15, 2017 at 16:13
