The choice of 38,888,888 or 888,888,888 would be attention-grabbing. Look at how much virtual ink has been spilled debating the relevance of 21 million bitcoins.

Also, the observations above about numbers in Chinese culture should not be ignored.

death-sickness-zero-zero-zero-zero-zero-zero would be bad marketing.

Make it equal to the total of PTS and AGS in existence at snapshot time.

I agree with @currencydebt.

It may sound silly, but numerical superstitions are prolific in Chinese culture, and I'm sure everyone agrees it probably would not be wise to accidentally exclude large portions of the Chinese....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbers_in_Chinese_culture

The four best choices:

7,000,000
8,000,000

38,000,000
49,000,000

38888888
BM,I don't think 38888888 is a good idea for chinese, 88888888 might be a good lucky number...

The number 50 is unlucky, especially in Asian culture and gambling circles. I vote for any number besides one that starts with a 5 or 50.

Generally, people really seem to enjoy big numbers.  :P  I'd go with 50,000,000.  This is going to be TaPOS, so what we're really talking about is the initial supply, which is also the constant multiplier for balance display, right?  In displayBalance = (absoluteBalance / totalSupply) * virtualSupply?

I vote 5m because even though it shouldn't change anything from an economic point of view, actually people are confused and have anchor biais which will made them think the less shares there are the more they are valuable.

I can't decide.
Write-ins *might* be considered
