Around 30 projects’ token unlocks are scheduled in August, adding a potential selling pressure of around $495 million.

The price of investment assets depends on supply and demand. If the proportion of supply increases and demand remains the same or decreases, the price plummets. In contrast, the price shoots up if demand increases and supply remains the same or decreases.

During token unlocks, there is an introduction of fresh supply. However, the demand might not necessarily go up. Hence, in general cases, there is a negative impact on price.
