Total Supply vs Circulating Supply
Circulating Supply is the approximate number of coins that are available in the market and in the general public’s control.
Total Supply is the total amount of coins in existence right now, minus any known coins which have been burned or lost.
Every currency in existence, whether traditional fiat or cryptocurrency, suffers from a percentage that is lost yearly. In a 2017 study by Chainalysis (link here) estimates roughly 13 to 21% of Bitcoin is gone for good.
The same applies for Dimecoin. Some estimates are even higher.
