Gate.io has finished today’s FIL release based on users’ FIL6 tokens holding. About 13K FIL in total has been released. You can view how many FIL you’ve received at My Billing Details page.
Following the FIL mainnet launch, a portion of FIL6 will be unlocked every day. Gate.io will swap about 0.55% of FIL6 for FIL on a daily basis according to the FIL release scheme (we will increase the release rate according to onchain release conditions). During the time of swap, if a user’s FIL6 available balance is insufficient, swap of that day will be skipped.
Gate.io has enabled Filecoin （FIL） spot trading, margin trading, perpetual contract trading, deposit and withdrawal. We have also added support for FIL leveraged ETFs.

Risk Warning Regarding the Overall FIL Mainnet Release
FIL mainnet tokens entering circulation are mainly from unlocked tokens allocated to the FIL team and early investors, as well as miners’ rewards. According to the current release schedule, 50 million FIL will be released over the course of 3 months, and over 0.1 billion to be released over 6 months (the numbers stated are based on our estimations, which may vary from the actual release). At its early stage, FIL circulating supply will be limited but will quickly increase. The limited supply and high demand may drive the price too high and the increasing supply later may pose increasing pressure on the market price.
Furthermore, there are currently several FIP proposals being discussed, e.g. FIP003, proposing to increase the initial release ratio for miner's’ rewards. The proposal is still under discussion and has not been approved yet. However, proposals can impact circulation and affect FIL’s price. Please keep an eye on such changes.
