IMX price resists correction despite massive token unlock

ImmutableX’s IMX token held its gains despite the $69 million token unlock on Friday. Typically, token unlock events negatively influence asset prices since they increase the volume of assets under circulation.

IMX unlocked 2.35% of the token’s circulating supply. The unlocked tokens will be used for private sales, ecosystem development and project development, according to Tokenunlocks.

Immutable’s layer swap rewards program is likely the driver of the recent IMX gains. On Wednesday, the project announced a rewards program in which users bridge to Immutable zkEVM from any support chain via a faster bridge and get 100% of the fees back. The program is on until April 29.
