Trader Joe project overview

1. What is Trader Joe?

Trader Joe is a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange (DEX). We are already familiar with DEXs like this. Each network will have a representative DEX with a good trading volume T (Total locked value) maximum.

For example, on Ethereum we have uniswap good on Binance SmartChain we have Pancake swap… And Trader Joe is a DEX that is seen as a fork, inspired by Uniswap and deployed on blockchain Avalanche.

Should I invest in the Trader JOE project and the JOE token at this time?

The DeFi market is growing and attracting many projects and users. The proof is that the TVL of the entire market has spiked to more than 275 billion USD at the moment. And DEXs are considered as a bridge to help bring money into this market.

Each different network will have its own representative DEX. And at the moment, Trader Joe is the largest DEX on Avalanche. The first mover advantage makes Trader Joe attractive to investors and traders. Trader Joe’s job now is to provide optimized products that help users solve their problems.

In addition, with the support of some large backers is also one of the advantages of this project. If we look at the profolios of the above backers, it is not difficult for us to find successful projects with their contribution. Hope Trader Joe also inherits these advantages.


Trader Joe is a newly started project, but perhaps the above advantages have quickly helped the project become the top DEX on Avalanche. This also partly helps the above JOE token to attract more investors.
