What Is Trader Joe?
TLDR: DEX on Avalanche protocol
Trader Joe is an AMM decentralised exchange platform on the Avalanche blockchain. Trader Joe is a fork of Uniswap. There are not too many AMMs on Avalanche yet, but the most popular AMM among users on this blockchain is Pangolin, so it can be said that Trader Joe's direct competitor is Pangolin.
Trader Joe, in addition to being an AMM, also integrates a number of features such as Yield Farming, Lending, Staking, etc. with the aim of becoming an aggregate platform and bringing the best experience to users.
In addition, users can exchange tokens for $LP tokens with just 1 click through the Zap feature — a new feature on AMM.
If other projects raise capital before making products, then Trader Joe has a completely opposite direction.
They are not a Fair Launch project (no token sale, the team does not hold tokens) but they will run the project, the entire $JOE - project token will be unlocked through inflation. However, Trader Joe still has an allocation for future investors if any.
Trade: This is a main product which user can swap their tokens.
Pool: Where user can add liquidity into the pool and earn trading fee. (0.25%)
Farm: This is an incentive program that encourage LPers provide liquidity and make more benefit.
Lending: Where user can borrow more assets
Stake: Stake $JOE to earn revenue.
Zap: Swap between token and LP token.

Thus, I introduced you to the Trader Joe project and what $JOE is, and provided all details about the project's highlights and tokenomics.
It can be said that Traderjoe is a prominent AMM right now when the TVL of the protocol has surpassed $2B. New products are launched towards an all-in-one platform with the most recent being a lending product. If Traderjoe's lending develops well, it will set the stage for further development related to derivative products.
