The tokenomics revealed

It was previously noted that the lack of tokenomics was a major complaint against Blur. Unfortunately, there was a lack of it, which cast doubt on the legitimacy of the token and the process by which it was distributed. However, on 14 February, the tokenomics was made public and described the distribution schedule and methods in detail.

In addition, the tokenomics stated that contributors, advisors, investors, and the community at large would receive varying percentages of tokens.
