It's Launch Day!

For those tracking the progress of Thorchain and it's RUNE token over the past number of years, well the moment of truth has arrived.

Personally I only really started to dig into Thorchain late last year as I started to take a growing interest in projects that are building cross chain protocols or those promoting interoperability.

Thorchain seems set to launch it's L1 to L1 cross chain swap protocol today, April 13, 2021.

Interoperable Decentralized Exchange

With the rising popularity of DeFi and it's so far successful platforms, we have mainly seen swap protocols in the form of AMM's (automated market maker) such as Uniswap or Pancakeswap and their forks.

These decentralized swapping platforms execute a swap with the use of liquidity pools and a process known as wrapping a coin. This process "mints" a new asset on the new chain in place of the original.

Thorchain is looking to build on this by creating bridges to other networks, starting with Bitcoin, and the use of it's protocol to create "continues liquidity" in an effort to solve liquidity issues and reduce slippage.

Thorchain is purpose built for cross chain swaps.

One Token To Rule Them All

RUNE is currently trading at 12.37, and I can see it making a run up to $15 this week.

unfortunately I'm not able to hold any right now but I was able to add some to my hypothetical "Moon Shot Bag" for just under $5 only a few weeks ago.

That chart is on fire! Which is to be expected when a project of this magnitude approaches a launch day years in the making.

This is revolutionary tech, and not just a win for token holders, but a win for the crypto space as a whole.

Platforms and protocols that are built with interoperability in mind should be in a good position to well in the later half of the bull cycle.

Yea Man rune is going to run up nicely if they pull this off.

I picked up a few.

fingers crossed 👊

So far we have only seen swap protocols in the form of AMM's (automated market maker) like Uniswap or Pancakeswap for example that execute a swap in a decentralized manner by building a liquidity pool and then wrapping a coin, essentially creating a new asset to be traded instead.

Isn't this what Blocknet does, atomic swaps in a decentralized manner without the need to create synthetic assets? Don't get me wrong, competition is great... but the statement is just not true.

I think my sentence was a bit vague and could be cleaned up..

From what i know and i could be wrong, with Thorchain the protocol and tech is about creating bridges between between chains, monitored and mandated by validators. Where as Blocknet uses Atomic Swaps like you pointed out. These being two different techs. My sentence was in the context of cross-chain architectures using validators.

Thanks for helping to clarify, both are very exciting technologies for sure!

I am sure that Khal and many others are sitting pretty right about now. He has been very bullish about Thorchain for some time.

A little steep for me to get some. I think I will wait on the initial FOMO and see if I can pick up one or two. I will make an account though. That is a no-brainer!

Downside? Having to keep up with another wallet!

Interoperability for Blockchain Projects is very important. It offers multiple doors for entry!

Thorchain is an awesome project. Their APY is so good & of course, RUNE is doing great at the markets.
