Breakdown of Circulating Supply

Circulating supply are tokens that are not locked in smart contracts. In practice, they could all enter circulation. A significant portion of the tokens is locked by agreements. We choose to include non-locked tokens i.e. from strategic investors as circulating. This may lead to an overstatement on actual circulating supply, but is a more practical approach.
