Affected by this news, ALGO tokens surged 60% in the short term.

In this regard , Dovey Wan commented:

For those who (participate) in the first auction, if you give up 90% of the refund right a year later, Algorand can now offer an 85% refund within three weeks and cancel the planned auction.

If the distribution becomes so dramatic and unreliable, I don't have much confidence in all other aspects, let alone "code is the law."
