The token unlocking action by Arbitrum coincides with the anticipated Dencun update scheduled for the Ethereum mainnet on March 13, 2024.

According to many experts, this upgrade event will significantly impact Layer 2 projects. Specifically, it is expected to substantially reduce transaction fees for Layer 2 projects like Arbitrum and enhance network efficiency.

Among the unlocked ARB tokens, $937 million will be distributed to investors, while $1.44 billion will be allocated to developers and advisors.

Arbitrum is a Layer 2 solution aimed at alleviating the burden on Ethereum by reducing the number of transactions on the Ethereum network and decreasing transaction fees.
