Tokenlon has become an independent decentralized exchange, which achieved more than $30 million trading volume in beta stage

Tokenlon has become an independent decentralized exchange, which achieved more than $30 million trading volume in beta stage

On July 31, 2019, imToken's built-in DEX Tokenlon has been upgraded to an independent decentralized exchange (DEX). Different from the previous versions, in which imToken natively integrated with the Kyber protocol, Tokenlon is now a new version of DEX based on 0x with an innovative design. In the future, Tokenlon can be used as a Web DApp to provide services on different platforms, such as exchanges and wallets.   Tokenlon, as a brand new DEX, has achieved a trading volume of more than 30 million US dollars in the beta stage without marketing efforts. It has been consistently ranked as one of the top ten DEXs, with a retention rate above 70% and a steady increase of high net worth users.   The birth of the Tokenlon   imToken has planned the trading feature since the first day for the simple reason: imToken user prefer non-custody of their assets, and shouldn’t have to trust a centralized exchange with their assets for trading?   In April 2018, imToken 2.0 introduced the built-in DEX project: Tokenlon.   At the time, Tokenlon integrated both Kyber and 0x decentralized exchange protocols and act as a  gateway to bring decentralized trading to millions of wallet users. However, the adoption is lower than what we expected. The original DEX has high friction and poor liquidity, which in turn leads to the fact that existing DEXes cannot offer good pricing and speed.   Since then, the Tokenlon project team has decided to explore and to build a new kind of DEX.   Tokenlon's innovations:   Get the best price in the shortest time: As we all know, DEX's trading speed and price have always been criticized, Tokenlon uses "multiple market makers price aggregation mechanism" to work with the most professional market makers.  When the user asks for a quote, the Tokenlon backend server will send a request to all the market makers, the prices(orders) returned by market makers will be aggregated at the Tokenlon server;                                                                  In the end, the best order from the aggregation will be returned to the user, and the time required to complete the transaction does not exceed 60 seconds. WYSIWYG with improved user experience: Unlike DEXs like Uniswap or Kyber, the price you see on Tokenlon is real-time and WYSIWYG. The quantity displayed at the time of signing is the quantity you will eventually receive. Assets are always in the hands of users, secure and reliable: Users interact with smart contracts to trade with market makers in a decentralized manner, users do not need to deposit assets to any "place". Secure and reliable. 4. Based on smart contracts, users do not need to deposit assets with any third-party. Instead, the contract is used to facilitate the decentralized atomic swap with the market maker, which is secure and reliable.   (Tokenlon user exchange process)   Tokenlon's Goal   After nearly eight months of hard work, Tokenlon has achieved:   - Asset security is fully controlled by the user. - Fast transaction, instant settlement  - Good price, close to that of the centralized exchange - Low service fee and no withdraw cost   Tutorial video links:   Tokenlon has become one of the major DEXs during its short beta period, and will soon be offering more popular and high-quality project tokens to meet the needs of imToken's nearly 10 million users. At the same time, Tokenlon's user retention rate has been over 70%, which shows that users are adopting DEXs that are simple enough to use. Of course, Tokenlon team will continue to optimize the user experience, and strive to create a most user-friendly DEX.   The official launch on imToken is only the first step of Tokenlon. Tokenlon is aiming to power many more products by providing services across different platforms.   Half of 2019 has already passed, the market capitalization of cryptocurrencies has exceeded 300 billion US dollars. But Ethereum's DEXs weekly trading volume is short over 40 million US dollars. The DEX ecosystem still has a lot of space to grow, and Tokenlon will play an important role in this long journey ahead.   But We Never Stop Winning   Tokenlon team

Nervos and imToken announce global strategic cooperation

On July 30, 2019, Nervos and imToken announced a global strategic partnership. In Q4, imToken will provide wallet service for Nervos CKB token holders after Nervos mainnet is online.

Currently, it supports bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS and Cosmos. In may 2018, imToken announced the completion of round A financing, with IDG capital taking the sole lead. Currently, imToken is headquartered in Singapore and has a branch office in Hangzhou, China. Nervos Network aims to build infrastructure for the next generation of crypto economy and includes a set of mutually compatible layered protocols with blockchain technology at the core.

Nervos, as an old friend of imToken, has maintained a close relationship since its inception.  The founders of the two teams had a common entrepreneurial experience. Daniel Lv, Nervos COO, was also the co-founder and CTO of imToken and participated in the implementation of the first version of imToken. At the same time, both sides are open source enthusiasts and share a common vision, that is, to promote the application of blockchain technology to the mainstream and provide first-class block chain business services for users around the world.

What if I forget my password?

What if I forget my password?

Decentralized wallets are just that, decentralized. All user authentication content, such as transaction password, Private key, Mnemonic, etc. are stored on local devices (decentralized) not stored on the centralized servers. If you forget the password, there is no way to reset it through a third party agency (such as the imToken team). The password was set when creating the wallet. If you forget the password, you can reset it. The only way to reset the password is to import your wallet by mnemonic or private key and change the password. If you didn't backup your wallet with Mnemonic or private key, I'm afraid you can't get your password back or reset it. Try harder to recall your password.   If the identity wallet password is forgotten, you can only delete the App, use the identity (mnemonic) to recover your identity wallet, and set a new password.    If create/import wallet password is forgotten, you need re-importing wallet again, and set a new password.   Confirm that the mnemonic or private key has been backed up before this process.

Tokens withdraw from exchange are not shown in imToken for a long time after the transaction

Tokens withdraw from exchange are not shown in imToken for a long time after the transaction

• Withdraw tokens from exchange need to be verified. If the transaction has not been verified by the exchange, please contact the support of the exchange. • Then you can check whether the transaction is successful through Etherscan  https://etherscan.io (support Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens). • After verified by the exchange, the package by miners needs to be done to confirm the transaction. If the transaction is verified by the exchange but you can not find it on Etherscan, it means that miners have not packaged yet. • If you can not find the transaction record on Etherscan long time after the exchange verified it, maybe the transaction failed. Please contact the exchange for help. • If you already found the transaction record on Etherscan but the tokens are not shown in imToken, then you can refresh the main page by pulling down the page. You can also try to switch to a better mobile network.

Why is it so important to backup Mnemonic phrases?

Why is it so important to backup Mnemonic phrases?

Generally speaking, you can choose backup Mnemonic phrases, Keystore or Private key, but imToken strongly recommends that you backup your wallet using Mnemonic phrases. There are several reasons for this: 1. Although Keystore is an encrypted Private key, it is inconvenient to write the whole code. Generally speaking, it needs to be stored through the network for transmission. Moreover, Keystore often gives users the illusion of security, when in reality it is not the safest method of backing up your assets. There have been many cases of users using online platforms to store their Keystore, which has compromised their assets.  2. The security level of the Private key is the same as Mnemonic phrases. Both are unencrypted Private keys. However, the Private key is also inconvenient for users to write down, as it is a long string of randomized characters. If you write the Private key wrong, you cannot use it to recover your address. We do not recommend backing up or transmitting by the Private key method. 3. Mnemonic phrases manage multi-chain wallets. Using only one Mnemonic phrase you can manage assets on multiple chains. In the APP imToken 2.0, you can use one Mnemonic phrase to manage BTC, ETH, EOS and COSMOS together. Whereas Private key and Keystore, on the other hand, store data from different chains separately.   4. The Mnemonic is convenient for you to write down. We recommend that you use physical media to backup your Mnemonic phrase. This way the backup is completely secluded from the network which effectively prevents hackers from attacking.
