THORChain aims to decentralize cryptocurrency liquidity via a network of public THORNodes and ecosystem products. Access to its native and cross-chain liquidity is open to any person, product or institution.
• No admin keys • Self-sustained network
The permissionless nature of the protocol gave birth to a fast-growing ecosystem. Checkout some of the latest community highlights from the THORNOOBs weekly recap.

Aiming for Deterministic Value
If over 80% of circulating RUNE gets locked into THORChain liquidity pools, by economic design RUNE’s market cap should be a minimum 3X the value of all non-RUNE assets locked into THORChain liquidity pools (BTC, ETH, BNB, BCH, LTC, DOGE). The more RUNE holders provide liquidity with their RUNE, the more accurate deterministic RUNE becomes. 74% of RUNE is locked in THORChain liquidity pools today.
THORChain is a complex technology. We recommend to read Erik Voorhees’ summary first, it’s a good introduction to the whole.
The ecosystem is entirely community-driven. Trusted products and services built by THORChads include swap/pool interfaces, wallets, network explorers, name services, arbitrageur tools and much more. Support the ecosystem, THORChain doesn’t exist without it.
The network is fully transparent on its security practices. Solvency can be fully verified on-chain.
The community welcomes all.
