What is Thorchain?
Decentralized Cross-Chain Infrastructure
THORChain is a network that facilitates native asset settlement between Bitcoin , Ethereum , BNB Chain , Avalanche , Cosmos Hub , Dogecoin , Bitcoin Cash & Litecoin
THORChain is secured by its native token, RUNE, which deterministically accrues value as more assets are deposited into the network.
Anyone can use THORChain to swap native assets between any supported chains or deposit their assets to earn yield from swaps.
