This makes up for about 1.1% of the total circulating supply. The additional 11.88 billion BTT that will be issued over the following twelve months will make up for a 1.2% rise in Tron’s market capitalization. The percentage will keep increasing by 0.1% yearly until it finally gets to the year 2025. Part of the announcement was as follows:
“Our goal is to reward our loyal TRX hodlers. So, we also plan to distribute extra 99,990,000,000 during offline and online events. This will make up for 10.1% of the circulating supply.”
