This storage implies that it should give us a max totalSupply of 2^256 - 1. A HUGE number. Note: I only need to store integers, not fractional values for my application.
Is this true?
Is this true for other ERC standards also, or do they differ?
Also, are there other practical implications to consider, perhaps a smaller data structure is used when the 256bits are not needed, so it's better to use a smaller number?
I know this is really three questions, but I think it is better to shoot for one post. Thanks for your time.
