Learn how to buy Tokenlon (LON) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Tokenlon in the UK

It looks like LON may not be available to purchase on an exchange in the UK.

You can still purchase LON by using a decentralised exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralised exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Ethereum and allow users to trade any asset directly with one another.

Decentralised exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralised exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

How to purchase LON using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find LON on a decentralised exchange and make sure Tokenlon can be traded for ETH which is the native asset of Ethereum. Popular DEXs include Uniswap, SushiSwap and 1INCH.
  2. Buy ETH to trade for LON using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for LON as well as ETH to pay for transaction fees on the Ethereum network (known as gas). You can use a service like Etherscan to get an idea of how much gas fees currently cost.
  3. Transfer the ETH into a web 3.0 wallet like MetaMask to connect to the DEX.
  4. Trade ETH for LON on the DEX of your choice, following the instructions on screen. Make sure to leave enough ETH in your wallet to pay for gas.
  5. Wait for the transaction to finalise and the LON tokens will arrive in your wallet.
  6. You may now keep the tokens in your web 3.0 wallet or transfer them somewhere more secure like a hardware wallet.

Best Tokenlon wallets to store your LON

You can keep your LON on the exchange you purchased it on, or move it to a personal wallet:

  • Some people like to use their own wallets to guarantee total ownership over their assets, or to use them with other applications like DeFi services.

Is Tokenlon a good investment?

Before investing in Tokenlon, here are some of the factors to consider:
  • Supply. The maximum supply of coins will have an impact on the price because an increased supply of coins can erode the value of the token. LON’s maximum supply is capped at 200 million and 130 million of them are allocated to the community. According to the Tokenlon “lightpaper”, the 130 million LON will be distributed in two phrases, while the 70 million LON that belong to Tokenlon’s team, other stakeholders and the development reserve will be released over 2 years.
  • Trade fee discount. As a LON holder, one of the main benefits is that you are entitled to a trading fee discount of up to 66%. For example, if you’re not a LON holder, you will pay a trade fee of 0.30%, but if you hold 5,000 LON, you only pay 0.20%.
  • Buyback. Net fees collected by Tokenlon are used to buy back LON, which is then returned to the treasury and staking reward pool. Until LON reaches the maximum capacity, each buyback is designed to trigger the mining of more LON, which are then distributed to mining participants.
  • Staking. As a LON holder, you will be able to access fee discounts and governance rights by staking your LON (locking away your LON rewards).
