Unlock (English). unlock) is the unlocking of tokens that were previously frozen under the terms of investment rounds or other programs to attract financing.
Usually the team carefully works out tokenomics so as not to cause a lot of selling pressure at various stages of the unlock and thereby not bring down the price of the token. However, some factors — for example, a lack of liquidity or profit-taking by early investors immediately after the tokens are unlocked — can seriously affect the asset’s quotes.
