DYDX unlocks postponed

The announcement concerning the lengthening of token unlock could have triggered DYDX’s current price movements. DYDX had initially planned for token unlocks on Feb. 3rd. However, DYDX issued a statement earlier this week postponing the unlocks to December 1st, 2023.

The DYDX trading network will be unlocking 30% (150 million) of its total token supply of 500 million. When writing this report, the tokens were valued at a little over $309 million. This initial unlock will trigger a series of smaller DYDX token vesting sessions starting January 2024.

For instance, the DYDX release notes that 40% of the token supply will be unlocked over a 6-month period beginning Jan. 1, 2024, to June 1, 2024. From July 1, 2024, to June 1, 2025, 20% of the total DYDX token supply will be released into circulation.

The last 10% of the token supply will be released between July 1, 2025, and June 1, 2026.
