Ticker

$JOY

Supply

The initial total supply is 1,000,000,000 $JOY, however there is no supply cap.

Hapi Units

The base unit is called Hapi, equivalent to Satoshis in Bitcoin. There are ten billion (10,000,000,000) Hapi in each $JOY, and hence at genesis there will be 1,000,000,000x10,000,000,000=10^19 Hapi.

Release Schedule

Many of the tokens in the genesis block were subject to limits on transferability, and the schedule below shows how the share of tokens in the genesis block that can be transferred increases over time. This schedule can easily be derived from the prior section on the genesis block, but it is explicitly included here for convenience.
Here is an embed of the source calculation.
