THORSwap Monthly Recap: July 2022
Cosmos $ATOM Launch, THORYield v2.0 launch, SushiSwap Onsen Farm, vTHOR Reward Recap & more! ⚡Plus teases for DEX Aggregator, THORSafe 👀
Welcome back THORChads, it’s been another big month of BUIDL for us at THORSwap. We kicked off July with the official integration of Cosmos ($ATOM), followed by a brand new makeover of our DeFi tracking app — THORYield V2 for mobile devices. On the protocol side we launched a SushiSwap Onsen Farm and shared detailed metrics of vTHOR Rewards in May.
This month’s recap is full of important details and juicy #alpha, read on for more!
⚛ Cosmos $ATOM arrives on THORSwap ⚛
We have finally connected with Cosmos — The Internet of Blockchains! THORSwap Users can now swap $ATOM directly to native BTC, ETH, BNB, RUNE, DOGE, BCH, LTC, stablecoins (USDC, USDT, BUSD, DAI) and many other ERC-20/ Binance Chain assets.
Swaps between native assets can be completed in one step and do NOT require any bridging or wrapping.
The $ATOM pool on THORChain currently has $2.37M in liquidity. For a detailed step-by-step tutorial on how to swap $ATOM on THORSwap, please refer to our Tutorial Videos on YouTube:
To celebrate the arrival of Cosmos, as per tradition, we released a limited edition Tee featuring the key art by THORSwap’s @paperX_Art:
All collectors of this Limited Edition merch will be airdropped an NFT with every purchase.

🍣 SushiSwap Onsen Farm 🍣
This month we partnered with SushiSwap to launch an Onsen Farm for very own protocol token $THOR.
With the launch of our new $THOR Onsen farm, users who are providing THOR-ETH liquidity on SushiSwap can stake their SLP tokens to receive additional liquidity mining rewards — in the form of both $SUSHI and $THOR — whilst maintaining their exposure to THOR/ETH.
Currently our TVL puts us at Top 27 on Sushi Onsen with APR remaining strong. We thank all LP’ers who staked with our Onsen Farm as well as everyone who participated in Olympus Pro so we can have substantial POL to always guarantee liquidity for users.
You can learn more about the SushiSwap Onsen program and how to provide liquidity here.
🔥 vTHOR Distribution Update 🔥
Here’s a look back at THORSwap’s May Rewards Distribution:
- Nearly 1/3 of a Million was generated in revenue
- Over 1/4 of a Million worth of fees earned were distributed to $THOR stakers ( $vTHOR holders), equal to a sustainable real yield APY of 17.76%
- On The highest trading days, $vTHOR rewards from Fee-share equated to 25% of total yield.
- Fee-share yield + $THOR rewards meant on days we saw over 300%+ vTHOR APY
- $57,505 was collected for our treasury, helping us sustain BUIDL-ing no matter the market condition.
BEP2/ ERC20 RUNE #KillSwitch
THORChain’s non-native RUNE Kill Switch has begun. This slowly reduces the redemption rate of BEP2/ERC20 $RUNE to Native.
Upgrade 👉 https://app.thorswap.finance/upgrade
$vTHOR is now listed on Ledger Live!
You can now send, receive and manage $vTHOR directly from Ledger Live safely. To recap: $vTHOR is the new ERC-4626 vault token which represents your staked $THOR position. As a tradeable and composable token, you can send and receive $vTHOR to other wallets while still accruing staking rewards + compounding yield.
