Loopring (LRC)

LRC represents the Ethereum-based cryptocurrency token associated with Loopring, a groundbreaking protocol designed for constructing decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges.


Throughout 2020, the daily trading volume within the broader cryptocurrency market experienced fluctuations within the range of roughly $50 million to $200 million. The majority of these trades occur on centralized cryptocurrency exchanges—online platforms operated by private entities responsible for fund storage and trade matching.


However, these centralized platforms come with inherent drawbacks, spurring the emergence of decentralized exchanges aiming to mitigate these limitations. Nonetheless, fully decentralized exchanges possess their own shortcomings.


Loopring's objective is to amalgamate centralized order matching with decentralized on-blockchain order settlement, resulting in a hybrid model that harnesses the strengths of both centralized and decentralized exchanges.


LRC tokens were introduced to the public through an initial coin offering (ICO) in August 2017, while the deployment of the Loopring protocol on the Ethereum mainnet commenced in December 2019.


Founders

Daniel Wang, a software engineer and entrepreneur based in Shanghai, China, is the founder and current CEO of Loopring Foundation, responsible for overseeing the development of the Loopring protocol.


Wang's educational background comprises a bachelor's degree in computer science obtained from the University of Science and Technology of China, along with a master's degree in the same field from Arizona State University.


His career trajectory before embarking on the Loopring project includes occupying various managerial and executive roles within prominent tech organizations. Notably, he served as a lead software engineer at Boston Scientific, a medical device manufacturer, and held the position of senior director of engineering for search, recommendation, and ads systems at JD.com, a major Chinese e-commerce entity. Wang also boasts experience as a tech lead and senior software engineer at Google.


In addition to his corporate endeavors, Wang has co-founded several companies. This list includes Yunrang (Beijing) Information Technology Ltd. and Coinport Technology Ltd., a cryptocurrency services firm.


What makes it unique?

Loopring's core concept revolves around merging the strengths of centralized and decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges to establish a protocol that capitalizes on their individual benefits and addresses their shortcomings.


Centralized exchanges, though widely used and convenient, come with significant risks due to their custodial nature. These exchanges hold users' funds, making them susceptible to hacking, internal misconduct, or regulatory intervention. Moreover, their lack of transparency and off-chain trade settlement can lead to price manipulation and unauthorized fund use.


Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) emerged as an alternative, mitigating custodial and transparency risks by facilitating peer-to-peer trades directly on a public blockchain. However, DEXs suffer from lower efficiency and fragmented liquidity due to limitations in underlying blockchains.


Loopring protocol aims to leverage the advantages of DEXs while addressing their inefficiencies through innovative hybrid solutions. By managing orders centrally but settling trades on the blockchain, and by creating circular trades with up to 16 orders instead of one-to-one trading pairs, Loopring aims to enhance order execution efficiency and DEX liquidity. This approach seeks to provide a more secure, transparent, and efficient trading environment for users.


Network security

Loopring operates on multiple blockchain networks, including Ethereum, and Neo, and with plans to support the Qtum blockchain. Each of these networks has its own native token associated with Loopring's functionality. On Ethereum, Loopring uses the LRC token, on Neo it uses the LRN token, and upon launch on Qtum, it will adopt the LRQ token.


These tokens are safeguarded by the cryptographic hash functions of their respective underlying blockchain platforms. Specifically, LRC is secured by Ethereum's Ethash algorithm, LRN by Neo's SHA256 and RIPEMD160 algorithms, and LRQ by Qtum's proof-of-stake PoSv3 algorithm. These hash functions play a vital role in maintaining the security and integrity of these tokens and their associated blockchain networks.


Recent updates

Loopring is introducing its Layer 3 implementation on top of Taiko, an Ethereum Type-1 zkEVM, and integrating it with their Loopring Smart Wallet. Users can complete tasks and earn participation NFT rewards through the new A3 testnet. The Layer 3 implementation is part of Loopring's efforts to enhance Ethereum scaling and represents a significant step forward in application design for the space. Loopring aims to combine centralized order matching with on-blockchain order settlement to provide the advantages of both centralized and decentralized exchanges. 


This implementation is expected to reduce costs for end users, aiding in the onboarding of more users and use-cases to Ethereum. Users can interact with the Taiko testnet by downloading the Loopring Smart Wallet, creating a Taiko A3 testnet wallet, completing tasks on the checklist, and receiving participation NFT rewards. Loopring is also working on distributing participation NFTs to users who complete tasks on the Taiko testnets, thus enabling them to claim rewards on Loopring L2 wallets. The Taiko testnet is part of Loopring's multi-network strategy for their Smart Wallet, with more networks expected to be integrated in the future.
