What is Loopring (LRC)? 

Loopring (LRC) is an ERC-20 token that describes itself as “an open-sourced, audited, and non-custodial exchange protocol”. 

Loopring’s objective is to incorporate centralized order matching with decentralized on-blockhain order settlement into a hybridized product that would embrace the best aspects of both centralized and decentralized exchanges. To design and engineer the best-in-class zkRollup exchange and payment protocol on Ethereum, and to operate products that bring it to users across the world. Loopring’s Layer 2 (L2) allows a high-speed, low-cost platform for trading, swapping, providing liquidity and payments without sacrificing Ethereum (ETH) security at all. 

ZkRollup throughput reaches approximately 1000x of Ethereum (as high as 2,025 trades per second) and cost per transaction to as little as 1/100th the cost of Ethereum. Since Ethereum has such a high demand it now brings congestion to the table almost permanently, that is where Layer 2 comes in handy.  It presents a less congested fast lane, where users transact gas-free and without delay, yet completely coupled to Ethereum security. 

In 2017 August was the initial coin offering (ICO) that made LRC tokens available to the public for the first time, while the Loopring protocol was first deployed on Ethereum mainnet in December 2019.
