The token unlock event is less likely to influence 1INCH price since the unlock accounts for less than 1% of the total supply of the token. 

ImmutableX worth $13.6 million will be unlocked this week

Finally, 18 million ImmutableX tokens, worth $13.6 million, will be unlocked on May 20. In this case, nearly 1% of the supply, or 0.904% of IMX, is gearing up for unlocking. The Web3 games token is exchanging hands at $0.7521 at press time, after yielding 4.2% losses over the past week.

IMX price may remain unaffected by the token unlock, since the percentage of supply being unlocked is less than 1%. Still, the amount of tokens unlocked is close to this key threshold that typically hits prices.

What to expect from ApeCoin

ApeCoin price is in a downward trend that started in August 2022. The NFT token is currently trading below two long-term Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs), the 50-day and the 200-day at $3.896 and $4.679. 

APE is tackling resistance at the 10-day EMA at $3.402. As APE price climbs closer to the token unlock, the asset eyes the 23.6% Fibonacci level at $3.833.
