However, critics have faulted the token distribution of TRX over time. According to the distritbution model of the token, about 45% of the total supply went to the initiators of the coin. Leaving the remaining 55% for investors. Critics referenced that other projects do not have such a model that prioritizes giving the founding firm a higher percentage.
