Ontology’s (ONT) Token Distribution and Unlocked Amount

Ontology’s (ONT) circulating supply amount of 54.75% (547,500,000 ONT) refers to all ONT without lock periods (ONT that can be transferred, but not necessary ONT that can be traded at the moment). For example, the community portion is unlocked ready for distribution in upcoming events.

Ontology has already begun many technical partnerships, and several enterprises plan to build applications on Ontology. We are also planning future community airdrops. Ontology will publish periodical reports which will further introduce this.

- Ontology Community: 12% (12%)

Giving back to the community is important for Ontology. This portion will be given back to the community through various events and as a reward to volunteers. This portion is entirely unlocked.

- Ontology Ecosystem Development: 25% (12%)

Ontology will use this portion of the tokens to continue to build various application services, promote the ecosystem, and secure strategic cooperation for expanding Ontology’s coverage and adoption. 12% is unlocked and the remaining portion will be unlocked next year.

Ontology is a huge ecosystem with a growing mature development team. This portion provides long-term incentive for the team with yearly lock periods over four years.

About Ontology (ONT)

Ontology uses a dual token (ONT and ONG) model. ONT is a coin and can be used for staking in consensus, whereas ONG is a utility token used for on-chain services. ONT releases ONG periodically.

Ontology Token (also ONT) is a NEP-5 token which was used temporarily before the Ontology MainNet. Now the Ontology MainNet has been released, all NEP-5 ONT is currently undergoing token swap to the native ONT coin.
