Total supply: 100We know from an email from 8 January, 2009, that Satoshi uploaded an archive of the Bitcoin source code (v0.1 as he named it) to SourceForge. From an early record of SourceForge files we can see that bitcoin-0.1.0.rar has a release date of 12 January, 2009, instead of the expected 8 January, 2009, when the first announcement email was sent. We know from emails that Hal Finney had tested version 0.1.0 and identified a major issue that made the client crash. Nakamoto managed to find the culprit in irc.cpp (mapAddresses.count() method call) and removed it.
