From Consensus to NFT NYC, the past month was filled with opportunities to learn, network, and build relationships. Today, we’re thrilled to share an important milestone in Agoric’s roadmap. On July 1st, 2022, the first 15,000,000 BLD tokens — or 1.5% of the Agoric network — will unlock. In short, unlocked tokens will no longer be restricted and can be freely transferred. This milestone is an important step in the growth of the Agoric ecosystem and marks the beginning of BLD tokens participating in the wider crypto ecosystem.

Join our Twitter Space today at 9am PT (16:00 UTC) where we’ll discuss what you need to know about the BLD unlock.
