Upcoming Token Releases: These Altcoins Are Set To Inject Billions Into The Crypto Market By May

Must read

May 2023 is poised to become a landmark month for the crypto market, with major token releases slated to inject substantial liquidity and potentially catalyze shifts in market dynamics.

Key developments from AEVO and PYTH and significant contributions from other projects are set to channel over $3 billion into the sector.

Substantial Crypto Releases Set the Stage

Token Unlock, a platform dedicated to tracking the release schedules of digital assets, indicates that May will witness one of the most substantial influxes of tokens into the cryptocurrency market this year.

At least 20 crypto projects are preparing to unleash tokens worth more than $10 million each, cumulatively amounting to $3.661 billion. These releases underscore the activity and continuous growth within the crypto sector, even amid fluctuating market conditions.

Among the tokens set to be released, AEVO and PYTH stand out with their billion-dollar injections, underscoring their strong market presence and investor confidence.

AEVO, a decentralized exchange, is scheduled to release 827.6 million AEVO tokens on May 15, which surpasses $1.25 billion at current valuations. This release will dramatically increase AEVO’s circulating supply by 757.95%

PYTH Network, known for providing decentralized market data, plans to follow suit with its considerable token release. On May 20, PYTH will distribute 2.13 billion tokens, valued at around $1.21 billion, representing 141.67% of its existing circulating supply.

Such movements are pivotal for the projects and the broader market, influencing liquidity and potentially price stability.

In addition to AEVO and PYTH, Wu Blockchain reports that Token Unlock has identified several other cryptocurrencies set for significant releases in May.

These include DYDX, ENA, SUI, MEME, GAL, MAVIA, APT, STRK, ARB, APE, IMX, ROSE, PIXEL, and AVAX. ID, YGG, OP, and PRIME are poised to release tokens valued at over $10 million each, rounding out a comprehensive list for the month.

Anticipating An Altcoin Surge

Meanwhile, El Crypto Prof, a prominent crypto analyst on X, recently projected a significant rally for the altcoin market based on historical market cycles. He notes that post-Bitcoin halving periods, like those in 2016 and 2020, typically lead to a phase of accumulation in altcoins, followed by a market rally.


Anyone who is bearish here obviously hasn’t done their homework.

Altcoins about to enter the parabolic curve, if we repeat 2016 and 2020.

History doesn’t repeat itself, but It often rhymes.

The analyst suggests the current market mirrors these past cycles, indicating a potential upcoming surge. He believes this could result in the altcoin market cap potentially doubling from its current estimate of around $1 trillion to $2 trillion.

Additionally, Daan Crypto Trades, another analyst, supports the view that the ETH/BTC ratio is a more accurate measure of altcoin market sentiment than the SOL/BTC ratio, signaling positive prospects for altcoins.
