Sui is a high-throughput proof-of-stake blockchain developed by Mysten Labs, which is set to go live on the mainnet today, marking the culmination of over a year of research and development. Mysten Labs, the developer of Sui, raised $300 million in a September 2022 funding round, valuing the project at over $2 billion.

Exchanges organized a public sale of the network’s native token at a sale price of $0.1 each at the end of April. In addition, Binance featured the token on its launchpool platform, enabling users to stake BNB tokens or TUSD stablecoins to earn Sui for free. Binance projected in its launchpool announcement that over half a billion Sui tokens would be unlocked following the launch. With a maximum supply of 10 billion Sui tokens, this implies that 5% of the total supply will become available upon launch. However, the core team has not confirmed this number.
