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 four major token unlocks to watch next week.

ApeCoin (APE)

  • Unlock date: June 17
  • Number of tokens unlocked: 15,6 million APE
  • Current circulating supply: 627,8 million APE

ApeCoin is the native token of Yuga Labs’ Ape ecosystem, which includes the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection. On June 17, the project will unlock over 15 million coins and distribute them among the treasury, founders, team, and contributors.

Typically, APE experiences a price drop following large unlocks. However, the decline may be less significant due to the renewed interest in non-fungible tokens in general and BAYC in particular.
