Conspiracy Principle: Regardless of not being prepared, FTX pressured Aptos to launch early in a final ditch effort to avoid wasting themselves.
I made [this](https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/feedback/yf9vkh/pretty_much_all_the_major_analysts_have_warned/) publish a couple of weeks in the past, earlier than the FTX collapse. I detailed a lot of points relating to its very unsuccessful launch. One factor talked about was its heavy funding from FTX.
We all know that the blockchain actually was not able to launch – the failed NFT mints, tokenomics schedule not printed, and poor TPS ranges and many others…
Now that we have seen what was actually taking place at FTX, I’ve bought a brand new idea on why the Aptos launch was a dismal failure. And that is absolute hypothesis. No proof. Take with a lot of grains of salt.
So now I feel FTX pressured them to launch within the hope that the worth of the chain would go up they usually might use it to cover a few of their collateral losses on FTT. Possibly they thought they may presumably get away with it for one more 12 months.
The truth that the tokenomics had been so troublesome to come back by main as much as the launch suggests two issues to me – they weren’t really confirmed but. Possibly FTX wished to change the unique settlement. How a lot affect did they actually have? Possibly they secretly wished to have the ability to dump a few of it sooner than initially agreed to.
I ponder if the tokenomics had been being created in collaboration with FTX in a bid to rig their capacity to unload early, a swift change was made for a one 12 months token unlock that won’t have been within the
Regardless of solely launching one month in the past, the primary VC token unlock for Aptos is lower than a 12 months away. FTX wouldn’t have been allowed to promote any Solana till a 12 months after that.
TLDR: Possibly FTX rigged the Aptos token unlock to dump on retail to cowl their losses.
