What is the difference from Bitshares, Wave Desk, etc.?

The majority uses gateways that accept currency and issue unsecured tokens instead (for example BTC > dexBTC), which can be already traded inside another blockchain, there is no guarantee that gateways will exchange the tokens back.


I’m a marketmaker, most of the exchanges are ready to cancel fees, and what bonuses do you provide?

You don’t have to keep the volume/asset over here


If your token means reputation, what prevents a person from registering 100 accounts, distributing a few tokens and starting fooling all the users?

A fraud is impossible due to technology because HTLC implies that the exchange is either done according to certain rules or not. The maximum damage is possible if one of the parties does not confirm the transaction, in this case the money can be frozen, but not lost. The amount of necessary reputation is dictated by the market, from a certain point the flood is not beneficial to the attacker.
