2022: A year in review

4 New Chains, THORNames, THORSwap WebApp v2 Update, THORSafe Multi-Sig, ETH & AVAX Cross-Chain DEX Aggregator, Wallets Integrations and Partnerships.

January 18th: $DOGE Launch on THORSwap

March 9th: THORSynths: Mint, Redeem and Swap Synth Assets

In March, we launched THORSynths, a suite of synthetic assets.
Synthetic Assets (“Synths”) are a collateralized representation of an asset on THORChain. These derivatives of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc will always have the same value as the original asset.

March 25th: Terra $LUNA & $UST launch on THORSwap

Back in March, we also added two new assets to THORSwap: TERRA $LUNA and $UST. The launch of these assets was met with high demand, leading to a significant increase in trading volume on the platform.


April 13th: THORSwap v2 launch

In April, we released THORSwap v2, which included a number of enhancements and new features such as improved performance, a sleek new user interface, and enhanced security measures.

April 21st: [Q2 Update] THORSwap roadmap

We also shared our roadmap for the second quarter of the year, outlining our plans for the future development and growth of THORSwap.
Major Highlights from our Q2 (2022) Update includes:
vTHOR Staking, Cross-Chain DEX Aggregator and the THORSwap API, everything has been delivered on time, respecting the expectations of the community.

April 25th: vTHOR Staking launch

On April 25th, we launched vTHOR staking, allowing users to earn rewards, and access to trading discounts.
$vTHOR is the new membership staking token that offers generous rewards and benefits to active THORSwap participants and users.

July 14th: Cosmos $ATOM Launch

We added Cosmos $ATOM to THORSwap in July, expanding the range of assets available for trade on our platform.
With the arrival of native $ATOM to THORChain, IBC’s true cross-chain potential can finally be unlocked. All #Cosmonauts can now directly swap BTC for ATOM, then use protocols such as Osmosis to swap from ATOM to any other asset in the Cosmos ecosystem. We also added support for Keplr Wallet and Ledger following the integration of this new chain.

July 15th: THORYield v2.0 launch

We also launched THORYield v2.0, which introduced new features and improvements to our yield tracking app.
THORYield v2.0 includes a full design revamp of the existing app, maintaining core features and introducing new functionality. We added THORChain Learn UI, vTHOR Staking and a fully revamped portfolio tracker with detailed metrics on your holdings. Learn more here.

July 26th: $THOR Sushi Onsen Launch


August 16th: THORSafe Launch

In August, we released THORSafe, a secure and easy-to-use non-custodial multi-sig wallet.
THORSafe Multi-Sig is a special THORChain wallet that is shared by two or more members. To create and broadcast transactions, it must be approved and ‘signed’ by designated members according to a set threshold.

August 23rd: Ethereum cross-chain dex aggregator launch

THORSwap users can swap between 4,800+ whitelisted ERC-20 tokens and Layer 1 blockchains such as Bitcoin, Binance Beacon Chain, Cosmos, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, THORChain (and soon Avalanche) in a seamless, non-custodial manner without the use of bridges or wrapped assets.

October 4th: Avalanche $AVAX launch

Blazingly Fast, Low Cost, & Eco-Friendly. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Avalanche community to the THORChain ecosystem. No compromise, truly decentralized self-custody exchange of native assets is not easy, but we believe it is critical for Crypto’s multi-chain future.

November 4th: Avalanche Cross-chain dex aggregator launch

THORSwap is now a full-featured Decentralised Exchange for Avalanche tokens — trade your favorite C-Chain tokens with each other and cross-chain to all Ethereum ERC-20s, $BTC and more, with optimized routing for price, slippage and gas.

THORSwap Cross-Chain API and SDK

THORSwap now offers our own full featured API+SDK for third party dApps and developers. Our secure solution removes technical barriers for permissionless 1-click native cross-chain swaps — allowing any any protocol can now go multi-chain!

Earn native yield with THORChain Saver Vaults with no additional assets exposure or impermanent loss. We’re proud to usher in a new era of single-sided yield, powered by THORChain’s latest innovation: Savers Vaults
