After TZScan is closed, I can't use old API the check the CIRCULATING SUPPLY. Then I Got the new block explorer(TZStats) in HERE. But I found the number of CS and TS in CMC is totally different. Which one is CURRENT?


tzstats has a rather detailed breakdown


Their definition of "circulating supply" is total tokens - unclaimed - frozen (in baking deposits) - TF's tokens that are still unvested, which is a reasonable definition.

I'm not sure what CMC uses but they're likely not very current and likely less rigorous.

  • But even CMC had been updated for a long time. The CS in CMC should not be that much more than the CS in TZStats. That is about 111.2M more! How would it happen? Buyback? Oct 31 '19 at 3:13
  • CMC likely includes unclaimed tez in the circulating supply because they could be claimed and spent at any time

    @JIANYunpeng you'd expect the co-founder of Tezos to know one or two things about the project ;)
