I saw people talking about this, so I added it to play with the ui code a bit.  It displays in your account overview as a new updating "PPM" (Parts Per Million) column for each balance.  So the new column is just (balance/current_supply*1,000,000).  Showing it as a straight percentage would just be depressing for anyone who isn't a whale.

Not sure I want to pull request it since 4 columns may be a bit messy there, but it's there for anyone who wants it.

Excellent!  +5%

To expand on this, some people might want to publicly broadcast that they have a certain minimum percentage of the total supply without actually revealing the exact number. It should be possible to reveal that they are over that threshold while keeping their precise balance secret.

This way we can use that threshold as a metric. I still prefer the percentage even if it is depressing to some people because the goal isn't to make people feel like they hold more than they do but to give them the most accurate representation of what they hold.

Parts per million is just as accurate as a percentage, just without as many leading zeros to count when you read it.  Arguably more accurate since all digits displayed can be meaningful.

can you add a "bitshares burned since start" or something. initial supply - current supply ?

Burn rate is more important. Like the rate per day of burning, if it can be made into a metric (avg bts burned per day).
