Beacon 🤝 Smart

The BNB Chain ecosystem is composed of two key blockchains — BNB Beacon Chain and BNB Smart Chain.

BNB Beacon Chain (BEP-2) is responsible for the governance and manages staking and voting.

BNB Smart Chain (BEP-20) is the EVM compatible blockchain with consensus layers and smart contract functionality.

Continuing the BNB Journey ⚡️

BNB Beacon Chain and BEP-2 assets like $BUSD have long been available on THORSwap since THORChain’s inception. With the integration of BNB Smart Chain and BEP-20 assets, THORSwap now provides Web3 users with access to even broader range of assets and protocols.

Launched in September 2020, BNB Smart Chain has rapidly risen to prominence, becoming home to a thriving DeFi ecosystem with an ever-growing ecosystem of dApps, NFTs, Web3 games and more. Its compatibility with Ethereum smart contracts offer stellar performance for smart contract applications with fast and affordable transactions.

PancakeSwap Cross-chain DEX Aggregation

Alongside the BNB Smart Chain integration, THORSwap is also excited to release the new BSC DEX Aggregator: unlocking direct access to BSC’s expansive array of long-tail assets via Liquidity on it’s leading Decentralized Exchange: PancakeSwap 🥞

This means automatic routing from Native $BTC to $CAKE for example, in a single transaction. Swap hundreds of BEP-20 Tokens seamlessly with 9 major blockchains and 5,000+ ERC-20 tokens (on ETH & AVAX) in a single click 💪

To get started:

  1. Head over to and connect your wallet.
  2. Choose BEP-20 BSC, and specify the amount you wish to deposit. Depending on the asset and slippage, the UI will provide an estimation of how many days it will take to “break even” (earn back the initial slippage fee).
  3. Click Deposit. A Transaction Confirmation prompt will appear. Verify then confirm.
  4. As soon as the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain, you will start earning Single Sided Yield on your $BNB!
  5. To view your yield, click the My Positions tab to check Earned and Total Earn performance.

Earn Yield by Providing Liquidity

Alternatively you may earn yield by providing $BNB liquidity on THORChain. Yields are generated from the trading fees paid by traders and reward emissions. To get started:

Step 1. Make sure you have already connected to THORSwap using MetaMask, Ledger, Keystore wallet or multi-chain supported wallets like XDEFI.

Step 2. Visit

Step 3. Select how you would like to deposit BNB. You have 3 options to choose from:

  • Deposit only BNB (aka “asymmetrical BNB deposit”)
  • Deposit both BNB and RUNE (aka “symmetrical BNB & RUNE deposit”)
  • Deposit only RUNE (aka “asymmetrical RUNE deposit”)

Symmetrical deposits also requires $RUNE in your wallet to pay for the deposit transaction fee. Asymmetrical deposits will automatically take the deposit transaction fee from your $BNB.

Step 4. Select the quantity you wish to deposit. If you are performing a “symmetrical deposit”, simply in enter the amount for one side and the other be automatically calculated to display equal value of BNB and RUNE.

Step 5. Confirm Liquidity deposit.

Congrats, you are now earning yield on your $BNB LP! Please be aware you will have 50:50 exposure to both RUNE and BNB (and potential for Impermanent Loss).

At the time of writing, only the BEP-20 BNB pool is active on THORChain, other whitelisted Binance-Peg assets for pool creation include: USDT, USDC, BUSD, DAI and TrueUSD.
