Maximum quantity for an asset

0 votes
I was wondering what the maximum quantity was an asset could be issued. I tried PHP's PHP_INT_MAX at 9223372036854775807 but that got me "Invalid quantity or smallest unit." :)

The maximum is actually 263-1, but the parameter is read as a floating point so there can be rounding issues. In any event we're going to introduce a hard limit of 1018 = 1000000000000000000 in future, so you should probably stick to that.

To clarify, that's the maximum number of raw units, e.g. if you're making the asset divisible into 1/100 pieces, the maximum is actually 10^16.
