Upbit Report Accidentally Leaks Aptos (APT) Token Economics

A prominent crypto influencer cobie raised concerns about several major exchanges listing the Aptos (APT) token with no details on tokenomics. He claims that exchanges should provide investors with basic information about crypto or tokens they buy.

“It’s not great that FTX/Binance etc. all list Aptos without any tokenomics transparency. It should definitely be a prerequisite to list something that users can have the basic information about what they’re buying.”

Several Twitter users later revealed that Upbit, South Korea’s top crypto exchange, accidentally leaked APT token economy in their report. Aptos Labs has kept the genesis token supply at 1 billion APT tokens. In addition, the APT token distribution is 51.02% to the community, 19% to core contributors, 16.50% to the foundation, and 13.48% to investors.

Following the leak, Aptos Labs in a tweet has released brief information about the Aptos tokenomics. It cites an article detailing the initial delivery, distribution schedule, estimated token delivery schedule, and expected token delivery changes.

Aptos is a proof-of-stake (PoS) Layer-1 blockchain from Aptos Labs. It uses the Move programming language and virtual machine (MoveVM) for dApp development. The team claims that Aptos can handle 130,000 transactions per second.
