Loopring Fundamental Analysis
Loopring project was released in June 2017 by Daniel Wang, a software engineer, former Google America tech lead and development director at JD.com. Since then the project has become a decentralized financial system that includes the Loopring protocol, relayer, exchange, an Ethereum mobile smart contract wallet, and the Loopring coin (LRC) itself. The company also plans to launch its own NFT platform in the near future.
Loopring payment protocol is an open source zkRollup protocol that runs on the Ethereum Layer-2 blockchain, which is powered by more advanced technologies that reduce the fees of the Ethereum network, speed up transfers, and increase the security of the crypto assets. The protocol doesn’t allow access, lose or freeze user funds.
Loopring relayer is the backend system, or operator, that interacts with the protocol to make a zkRollup run. It hosts and updates the off-chain Merkle tree, creates rollup blocks, generates zkSNARK proofs of their validity, and publishes data and proofs to Ethereum.
Loopring Layer2 is a non-custodial exchange and a gas-free, high-speed payment platform without intermediaries for trading, swapping, and liquidity providing. It is built on the Loopring protocol and runs by the Loopring relayer. Loopring exchange manages orders in a centralized manner but settles the trades on-chain and combines up to 16 orders into ring trades instead of allowing strictly one-on-one trading pairs. Remarkably, Loopring is the only company that has a patent for a decentralized crypto exchange in the United States.
Loopring coin (LRC) is an ERC-20 native token of the Loopring open protocol, created to build decentralized exchanges. LRC is controlled by the Loopring protocol’s smart contracts, which combine individual transactions into order rings (Loop Order) by organizing public order books and recording trading history, and in some cases also transferring the orders to the other relays. Thus, LRC can be earned via ring mining.
Currently, the LRC token can be used to pay the fees of the Loopring Layer-2 exchange. Commissions paid by Loopring Exchange are distributed on Layer-2 among LRC liquidity providers, insurers, and Loopring DAO, in an 80/10/10 proportion, respectively. The token model rewards LRC holders who use their assets productively for the good of the platform.
