Tokenlon has consistently strived to build a secure and reliable decentralized trading protocol. Over the past few years, we have established a solid foundation and become a trusted product for hundreds of thousands of users. In 2024, Tokenlon will continue to further improve user trading scenarios and trading experiences.

Our next-gen protocol, Tokenlon v6, will utilize price algorithm optimizations to bring you optimal market quotes and introduce a smart order splitting feature, removing limits on large trades. More innovative trading tools will also be implemented, providing users with more trading edges. A continued expansion into multi-chain networks will also be one of Tokenlon’s goals in the coming year, contributing to a more diverse ecosystem.

Asides from the protocol enhancements, 2024 will see changes to the LON economic model, efficient management of the community treasury, and strengthened collaboration between products and the ecosystem. A big thank you to all of our users for accompanying us on this amazing journey!
