Loopring vs UNUS SED LEO
What problem does this service solve?
|Loopring is a decentralized exchange protocol with unique automated execution mechanisms.||UNUS SED LEO aims to increase the transparency of how revenues from Bitfinex, Tether, and its related entities are allocated.|
Loopring is an Ethereum-based decentralized exchange protocol with an automated execution. Loopring is not a decentralized exchange. It is an infrastructure that enables decentralized exchange. Loopring is designed to allow any platform that uses smart contracts to integrate. By pooling all orders sent to its network, Loopring provides maximum liquidity and optimal pricing across exchanges and platforms. One of Loopring's unique features is that users don't need to deposit funds with an exchange. Tokens remain in wallets and are not locked by orders. In addition to not requiring direct deposits, the protocol has innovative mechanisms built in that allow for a series of trades to be bound together in an order ring to fulfill each other. The orders can then be split through order sharing, where partial orders will be filled until the whole amount is completely filled. This unique automated execution feature increases liquidity.
UNUS SED LEO is an initiative started by Bitfinex that is focused on increasing the exchange's transparency. UNUS SED LEO means "one, but it's a lion" in Latin. The iniatative was created to increase the transparency of the exchange's finances, following a controversy related to the allocation of reserves from the stablecoin Tether, that was created by the same parent company as the Bitfinex exchange, iFinex. It is built around a token burning redemption mechanism which is tied to the parent company's revenues. Their dashboard provides insights into the fees that are collected, and the LEO tokens that are burned.
