Arbitrum Price Set to Face Pressure as Over 1 Billion Tokens Unlock in March 2024


  • Arbitrum announced the release of more than 1.11 billion ARB tokens on March 16 of this year.
  • Circulation supply is expected to reach 2.375 billion.
  • Unlocks can act as bearish catalysts, as per The Tie, causing massive inflationary pressures.
  • ALGT appears as an alternative after a $1.1 Million private seed raise within two days.

Arbitrum announced the release of more than 1.11 billion ARB tokens, estimated at $1.24 billion, on March 16 of this year. Arbitrum will gradually unlock a certain number of tokens every four weeks, commencing a four-year period of phased unlocking of its digital tokens till 2027.

The amount to be released is equivalent to 87% of the 1.275 billion tokens that are currently in circulating supply. There are fixed 10 billion tokens in total circulation for Arbitrum. Following the unlock, that figure will almost quadruple to 2.375 billion.

According to analysts, Unlocks can act as bearish catalysts for the price of tokens as they free up liquidity. Token prices are typically affected by unlocks that account for more than 100% of the average daily trading volume. They can put inflationary pressure on the market with increasing volatility and speculations.

Unlock of Arbitrum in September 2023 – Historical Insights

The one and only unlock for the $ARB happened on September 18, 2023. The day after unlocking saw a 3 percent spike in price, which was followed by a gradual 21 percent decline.

The imminent 2024 unlock presents both opportunities and risks for the cryptocurrency industry. It has historically been projected that the sheer scale of this release will have a short-term detrimental effect on the price of ARB.

Historical data suggests that ARB has the potential to recover significantly in the weeks following the unlock. Nonetheless, the market is speculative as there may be some immediate uncertainty and negative emotions following the unlock.
