# Welcome to Tokel's Creator Documentation
# What is the Tokel platform?
Tokel is a dedicated token platform. This platform will provide a solid foundation, using existing Komodo Technologies, for token projects to launch and succeed from by offering end-to-end token solutions for fixed supply and non-fungible tokens (NFT's). Furthermore Tokel aims to provide a wealth of knowledge, information and assistance for open-sourced applications, projects and businesses looking to capitalize on token economics or token applications. The Tokel platform will provide simple to use, streamlined token creation, explorer and wallet integration, decentralized exchange integration assistance and more.

# The benefits of creating a token on the Tokel blockchain
- There are no requirements to create and manage your own blockchain.
- Free, simple to use GUI for token usage, management and creation.
- Extremely cheap token creation and transaction fees (1 satoshi of TKL per token created and 0.0001 TKL txfee by default).
- Free to use TKLTEST chain for any token or custom consensus testing prior to launch or integration.
- Your token will have immediate token wallet integration.
- Your token will have immediate token explorer integration.
- Your token is safe from 51% attacks as Tokel is secured through dPoW.
- You will have the ability to sell your tokens immediately after creation with Tokel’s inbuilt tokenDEX and NFT marketplace integration.
- Tokel exchange partnerships mean your token will have a centralized exchange listing option. The exchanges are only required to run the Tokel chain to access every single token on it.
# The Tokel Application
The all-in-one Tokel application is an open-sourced application that will be the one stop shop for all Tokel related features. This application is built using nSPV superlite wallet technology that has been developed by the Komodo platform, for an incredibly fast and reliable experience. This application accesses all of the features offered on the Tokel blockchain whilst keeping users funds in their own wallets (completely non-custodial).
This application is in development. You can keep up with progress on the github, or find out more by having a chat in our discord. https://github.com/TokelPlatform/tokel_dapp (opens new window)
