WhiteBIT Token Unlock Procedure


Private sale

Part of the tokens in the amount of 54 million WBT was sold as part of a private sale at a price of $1.62 per 1 WBT. These tokens are locked for 3 months, after which 20% of them will be unlocked within 5 months.

The initial amount of private sale tokens (50-75 million) has been limited to 54 million WBT to reduce the amount of unlocked tokens in the next rounds.

The amount of private sales was complemented with 1 mln WBT on the WhiteBIT launchpad as part of the IEO. These tokens will not be locked.

Thus, the maximum total number of tokens in circulation during September will be 121 million WBT and 175 million WBT over the next 8 months.

25 million WBTs were burnt (the burner address is 0x000­00000000­00000000­000000­000000­000000001) so that they would not be counted in circulation. Transaction ID

The unlock procedure

The rest 200 mln WBT will be distributed among special funds for both the development of WBT and the development of the whole WhiteBIT ecosystem. These tokens will be unlocked over a period of 3 years, starting with the final round of unlocking private sale tokens. The intervals between rounds are listed below.

Team and project tokens will be unlocked in the final round. Thus, the volume of the first three stages will be about 60% of treasury tokens, and in the last round – about 40%. The tokens allocated to the funds will be used in accordance with the purposes of the funds.
