Token unlock involves releasing tokens that were previously blocked under fundraising terms. Projects carefully schedule these releases to avoid market pressure and prevent a drop in token prices.

However, factors like lack of liquidity or early investor profit-taking can significantly impact an asset’s dynamics. Here are five major token unlocks to watch next week.

Aptos (APT)

  • Unlock date: June 12
  • Number of tokens unlocked: 11,3 million APT
  • Current circulating supply: 437,9 million APT

Aptos is a Layer-1 blockchain that aims to deliver a safe and scalable infrastructure for decentralized applications. Built with a focus on security and performance, it leverages innovative technologies to elevate the blockchain experience.

While Aptos can be considered one of the most successful blockchain projects of the last couple of years, it often faces criticism from the crypto community for its tokenomics, which is heavily influenced by venture capital. A significant portion of APT tokens remains locked. 11.3 million APT scheduled for release on June 12 will be distributed among the foundation, community members, core contributors, and investors.

In March 2022, it closed a $60 million investment round and secured an additional $200 million from investors, including ParaFi Capital, Declaration Partners, and Tencent Holdings.

On June 14, the circulating supply of IMX will increase by 25.5 million tokens. These newly unlocked tokens will be allocated to the development of the project and the broader Immutable ecosystem.
