Speaker:Tokenlon Product Manager Randy 

Hello everyone, I'm Randy, the Product Manager at Tokenlon. I'm a tech enthusiast and an avid DeFi user. I'm also a pet lover and have a Dachshund. If you want to get in touch with me, you can find me on Twitter at @Randylien.

Before we get started, let me give you a brief introduction to Tokenlon and imToken.

  • Tokenlon is a decentralized trading and payment settlement protocol built on the blockchain, incubated by imToken in 2019 and now offering instant swaps and limit order.
  • The latest version of imToken brings a brand new signing experience called "You Sign What You See." Now, you can preview your transactions before confirming them to ensure that the transaction details match your expectations. Furthermore, imToken has updated its risk control system to provide better security and protection, guarding against phishing and scams.

This article will provide an overview of DeFi, including its usage, challenges, and the origins of the concept.

As we can see, the current DeFi space offers numerous remarkable solutions, including Swap, Staking, LP, Perpetual, Options, LSD, and RWA , among others. However, despite these rich options, there are still some challenges for the average user.

The first challenge in DeFi is the complexity of transactions, as these products tend to be intricate and require a higher level of risk management expertise. Additionally, trading is a specialized skill that requires an understanding of market trends, the ability to control emotions, and the timing of sales.

I believe that spot trading is the most common method. It's relatively easy to get started with, but it requires users to handle their own transactions, make judgments about market trends, and avoid buying high and selling low.


The second challenge in DeFi is the uncertainty of timing, particularly when making buying decisions. If you're unsure about the best time to purchase, there are two primary approaches to consider:

1. Lump Sum Investment: This approach is suitable for entering the market quickly, especially during bullish market conditions. It involves investing a significant amount of capital all at once. The advantage is that it can be more effective in a bull market, where asset prices are generally on the rise. However, it carries the risk of buying at the peak of a price rally.

2. Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA): DCA is ideal for those who want to invest consistently over time. It performs well during bear markets and provides peace of mind because you continue to purchase assets at regular intervals, regardless of whether the market is up or down. This strategy helps to average out the cost of your investments, reducing the impact of market volatility. DCA also makes it easier to accumulate assets, especially during market downturns when prices are lower.


Looking ahead to the future of DeFi trading, we can anticipate several key developments:

1. Simplifying and improving the user experience will be a key focus of future DeFi, allowing users to easily concentrate on factors such as price, budget, and duration, making it more accessible for new users..

2. Collaborating with professional market makers to ensure more competitive prices, thus enhancing the overall DeFi trading experience..

3. Transactions will become more flexible and secure, with users maintaining control of their funds in their wallets. Strong risk control measures will be in place to safeguard user investments and assets, enhancing overall safety.

Going forward, the focus will be on optimizing prices and performance, reducing costs and increasing the efficiency of DeFi transactions to provide an enhanced user experience that meets market demands. User engagement, feedback, and testing will remain critical in refining and improving products.

Continuous efforts will be made to provide stable and efficient services, meeting the evolving needs of users. While the DeFi space presents opportunities and challenges, streamlining processes and offering more automation tools will enable more individuals to participate, mitigate risks, and increase returns in the ecosystem.
