JOE is the native token of Trader Joe, a decentralised exchange based on the Avalanche blockchain. It’s primarily a governance token that also rewards its holders with shares of exchange revenue.
Trader Joe was founded in June 2021 by two pseudonymous developers, 0xMurloc and Cryptofish. The company has also launched a lending protocol called Banker Joe and an NFT marketplace called Joepegs.
The QI token is a native asset on Avalanche and oversees the BENQI ecosystem. Founded in 2021, BENQI is a DeFi liquidity market protocol built on Avalanche that makes it easy for users to lend, borrow and earn interest with their assets.
QI is required to vote and decide on the outcome of proposals through so-called BENQI Improvement Proposals (BIPs).
