What is THORChain (RUNE)?

THORCHain is a decentralized crypto exchange (DEX). Unlike other DEXs like SushiSwap and Uniswap, THORCHain offers a cross-chain exchange and not only one for the Ethereum network. This means that besides Ethereum tokens, coins from other blockchains such as Bitcoin, Cosmos or Binance can also be swapped. Rune is the native token of THORCHain. Validators of the blockchain must store Rune in order to be able to confirm transactions. The token also serves as governance token for decisions on the development of the THORCHain protocol.

Our take on THORChain

THORCHain offers a great advantage to many other ways to swap crypto coins. Compared to DEXs like Uniswap and SushSwap, it not only enables transactions on one blockchain network like Ethereum. Compared to cross-chain exchanges like Coinbase and Kraken, it offers a decentralized solution. Wrapped coins, such as wrapped Bitcoin, offer a decentralized solution that enables swaps between blockchains. However, you do not hold real coins, but only wrapped coins and have to trust the organization wrapping them. At THORCHain you can hold the actual coin.
