UI representation of token amount might be misleading #2275

Problem Definition

After I opened a channel and deposited 80 tokens I had the vague impression that I only deposited 8, because in the UI the amount was shown as 0.0000008 instead of 0.00000080.

@CosminNechifor I had a discussion with @andrevmatos and he raised some valid points.
The default/suggested decimal value is 18 decimal points so you will have 0.100000000000000000 if you don't truncate decimal points instead of 0.1.

I having a look at wallet apps to see if there is a common pattern used.
