A new decentralized exchange powered by Free TON’s infinite sharding mechanism helps retail traders radically increase their trading efficiency.
“Pain and agony,” say Uniswap users looking at Ethereum gas prices. As a result of its tremendous growth over several months, decentralized exchanges on Ethereum are becoming significantly less viable for retail traders.
To solve this problem, the Broxus team, developers of the bridge between Free TON and Ethereum networks, has launched TON Swap, a next-generation decentralized exchange. It has taken the best features of Ethereum-based decentralized exchanges, such as Uniswap and SushiSwap, but powered them with the fast and cheap Free TON blockchain.
“Free TON is a multi-blockchain platform that can handle thousands of transactions per second thanks to its dynamic sharding mechanisms, which create new shards as needed. As a result, it is the fastest blockchain available, according to developers.”
Pretty much like other AMM-based exchanges, TON Swap operates liquidity pools, represented by separate smart contracts. However, unlike Ethereum contracts, Free TON contracts are distributed and benefit from the infinite sharding mechanism. As a result, transaction gas fees are several orders lower: on average, less than $1 vs. roughly $200 on Uniswap — and do not depend on the network workload.
Anyone who has both sides of a pair can create a pool by themselves and get LP-tokens in return. These liquidity provider tokens will represent the stake in the pool and serve as a basis for exchange fee distribution. Current exchange rates are 0.25% and go directly to the liquidity providers. During its beta-testing period, TON Swap will not charge any fees for itself.
At the moment of the launch, TON Swap offers one pre-configured pool, WTON/USDT. Anyone who contributes to this pool with their liquidity will be eligible to participate in the yield farming program by the Free TON DeFi Alliance. To do this, users will need to stake their LP-tokens on a dedicated contract the same as what Alliance has done for Uniswap liquidity providers. Throughout the farming program, the contract will distribute 200,000 TON proportionally to the amount of staked tokens.
“Our next steps are the implementation of the governance system and a thorough security audit of the DEX,” said Vladislav Ponomarev, CEO of Broxus. “The security of user funds is our main priority.”
Broxus, one of the leading developers of the FreeTON network, has announced that they have made key updates to TON Swap, the FreeTON-powered DEX. The most significant changes are centered around the platform’s farming offerings, which were given expanded parameters on Sept. 3 in conjunction with the sustained growth and increase in liquidity the platform […]
Last year, Free TON ran a contest that gained the network over 400 validators. The contest, dubbed “The Crystal Game” (homage to the Glass Bead Game) had validators compete in validation cycles recurrently in order to win the title of “Magister Ludi” as well as token prizes. This year, those same validators (in addition to […]

The Free Ton bridge is a second-layer solution that links the Ethereum blockchain with that of Free Ton. The bridge fulfills a key function in decentralized finance, giving users the opportunity of transferring their assets from a first-layer chain, where transactions are slow and costly, to a newer chain with better scaling capabilities and close […]
Free TON, a decentralized proof-of-stake blockchain powered by its community, and Frax, a fractional-algorithmic stablecoin protocol, announced a partnership to make decentralized finance more functional and affordable for everyone. The Frax team will deploy its protocol to the Free TON ecosystem so that its stablecoin, Frax, and governance token, FXS, can be minted natively on Free […]
