These tokens will be distributed among the Aptos Foundation, major contributors, investors, and the community. Over the past week, the APT token has sagged by 18%. 

On April 15, Starknet will unlock 64 million STRK tokens, which is almost 8.8 percent of the total circulating tokens and valued at $124 million. These tokens will go to early investors in the project. The token has dropped 15% in the last 7 days in anticipation of the unlock. The date of the unlock coincides with the accumulation phase ahead of a potential rally, indicating investor sentiment looking to maximize returns over the long term.
