Introducing the Jupiter Token List API – an open, collaborative and dynamic token list to make trading on Solana a more transparent and safer experience for users and developers.

Jupiter Token List API

Today, we are introducing the Jupiter Token List API. We are designing this token list to be open, collaborative, and dynamic, to build a safer and more transparent trading experience for users and developers.

A key part of our JUP Promise (Best Price, Best Token Selection, Best UX) is the idea that users should be able to trade any token they want on Jupiter while having the peace of mind that the token they are trading is the right one.

As per the original announcement, we have been hosting a discussion on this topic in #bonk, and we had a wide range of opinions around both the proposed plan and how to best execute it.

We would like to give a big thanks to everyone, including the BONK community, users, and the BONK core contributors for coming together to discuss this very tricky situation, and especially for everyone’s understanding of this dilemma we found ourselves in.

At Jupiter, we are big fans of the BONK community and we deeply appreciate the energy it has brought to the Solana ecosystem. We have also been strongly supportive of the community, including burning the BONK fees we collected from limit orders placed on our platform.

Late last week, we discovered that BONK tokens were airdropped to Openbook open order accounts rather than to the user accounts they were intended for. Since most traders use Openbook via Jupiter, a large portion of these tokens (10T $BONK) were airdropped to open order accounts managed by the Jupiter program. The full list of open order accounts and the respective accounts those were created for can be found here.

Dear Jupiter community - Happy NY eve, and looking forward to a super fun 2023! Despite of the macro headwinds, we are making awesome progress towards being the swap layer of Solana and helping move crypto users away from ever having to need to use centralized exchanges like FTX ever again.

Hey everyone, here are some updated thoughts on the Solana landscape, Jupiter direction and community alignment based on my observations over the last few weeks since and from discussions from the last community call.

Solana Landscape

A few months ago, we tweeted that Solana is the most likely candidate to be a major trading hub in crypto, and our confidence in that has not changed. That said, it is important to recognize several key issues plaguing Solana right now.

We spent the last 2 weeks sharing an ethos for Jupiter’s community and debated how we can best rally and recognize what is important to us. You showed up with passion and ideas. And together, we thought really hard as a community about what matters to us.

The essence of why community is important is captured here: Without a community, we are just a website and code, much like how the body is just flesh and blood. The soul gives us life, and the community brings Jupiter alive.

A strong community is at the heart of every good crypto protocol; especially for Jupiter, our community has been cheering us on, guiding development from day one, and filling in the team’s blindspots with talent and passion.

We wouldn’t have been the same without you.

Over the last few months, Jupiter has become the key swap liquidity infrastructure for Solana growing to over $16B in trading volume, aggregating across 15 integrated DEXs and facilitating the liquidity flow of many key projects in the ecosystem.

What we've accomplished today has been the result of a successful collaboration between the team, the community, and the Solana ecosystem. Only through constant feedback and close collaboration with everyone, have we been able to continually work towards the JUP promise of providing the best price, best token selection, and best UX in DeFi.

As crypto captures more markets like banking, gaming, and payments, we believe Solana will be one of the key hubs for all that activity, with the number of applications, users, and protocols set to explode in the years to come.

Jupiter will provide the single liquidity endpoint for all these stakeholders to connect effortlessly and the swap infra to allow the entire ecosystem to scale exponentially. But, unlocking this growth requires the collective efforts of not just the team, but, a larger body of the community, ecosystem, and users working together.
