How many decimal places can eos be set to? I want to send the smallest amount of eos to another account.

1 Answer 1


Token precision (number of decimal places) is defined when executing the create function on the eosio.token contract.

You pass max supply to the token contract, which will include the precision.

In the case of the EOS token, it is divisiable up to 4 decimal places.

0.0001 Is the smallest unit of EOS.

  • does the minimal unit have a special name, like Wei in Eth? I've found that SYS is a new name of EOS: eosio.stackexchange.com/a/487/6408 but haven't found anything about subunit
