POLK Tokenomics & Distribution Schedule


POLK is the utility token of the Polkamarkets Protocol. POLK ensures the security, resolution and curation of prediction markets on Polkamarkets. It enables the decentralization of the Protocol, making it impractical for a single entity to control the markets.



There are, and will only ever be, 100,000,000 POLK (100 million) tokens.
As of November 2022, all tokens have been distributed and unlocked.

Unlock schedule

POLK’s TGE (Token Genesis Event) was held on Feb 20, 2021.
