Q: Why I can't get the reward as above declared
A: This calculated based on Coin Already Supplied = 0
The reward formula is here: (You can check this code in Currency.cpp)
Reward = Total Supply - Already Supplied >> speed_base;
At first, speed_base = 18, every 1/6 supplied, speed_base will increase 1

Q: 184 billion supply is too much. Your coin is worthless obvious.
A: BBSCoin is designed for forums. Credits are inflated in the most of places. We don’t want the exchange rate to end up something like 100k:1. 
We think this is a good supply for this scene.

Q: My desktop wallet can't transfer anything big.
A: This is due to you have received too many small incomes. Turn on wallet optimization in preferences. 
And leave the wallet running, it will start to combine small amounts to larger one. You will be able to transfer a larger amount next time.
The below status is optimization completed.
