Of the 22,187,500 1INCH tokens to be unlocked, 1.81% of it, which is 27,187,500 1INCH, would be allocated as a protocol growth fund. Another 56,250,000 1INCH which makes up 3.75% of the total tokens to be unlocked, would be allocated as community incentives. The rest would be allocated to project team members, protocol advisors, seed investors, and Series A investors.
Any cause for panic?
Members of the 1inch community have expressed their concerns over the token dumping that might follow the unlocking process. The last token unlock took place in June, and this caused the price per 1INCH token to spiral down by 25%.
On-chain analytics firm Lookonchain also noted that on 2 December, 1inch Foundation transferred 15.56 million 1INCH tokens worth $8 million to Binance. According to Lookonchain, when a similar amount of 1INCH tokens were transferred on 9 June, 1INCH’s price declined by 25% within a week.
However, another analyst Don Yakka, stated that the huge transfers were not connected to 1inch Foundation. Instead, according to Don Yakka, “it is via an early investor because they have claimed through vesting contract.”
That is not from the 1INCH foundation wallet.

1INCH’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Money Flow Index (MFI) showed that the asset was oversold at press time. The RSI was below its neutral spot at 37.72, while the MFI was spotted at 29.84.
This confirmed the negative sentiments that trail 1INCH ahead of the scheduled token unlock.
