Unlock Schedule & Circulation

TGE took place on March 23, 2021. The unlocks are on a quarterly basis so just add 3 months to the TGE date and you’ll get your unlock dates. These unlocks do not include Staking Yields, as they are minted, not unlocked.

As of March, 23, 2023, all investor tokens have been unlocked.

Token unlock schedule — does not include Staking Yields
Cumulative unlock — does not include Staking Yields

The Community & Ecosystem unlocks are updated based on a combination of actual spending and future projections.
