AVAX LP/Swap Launch

On October 4th, $AVAX has been launched, with the launch of another major L1 Blockchain, as of today you can trade over 8 L1’s + over 4,800 ERC20s by using our very own DEX Aggregator.

Alongside Keystore wallet, we integrated MetaMask and Ledger hardware wallet as well as multi-chain wallet interface XDEFI for you to connect and manage your Avalanche assets for full self-custody. Learn more in this dedicated press release.

AVAX DEX Aggregator Launch

It’s finally here, our full-featured Decentralised Exchange for Avalanche ($AVAX) tokens — Our users can now connect their self-custodial wallets to THORSwap and swap native $BTC with an AVAX token such as $PNG. We pick the best route with lowest slippage to bring you the best trade in a single transaction ($BTC > $AVAX > $PNG) without using any bridges and as always, all this in a single permissionless self-custodial transaction.

Protocol Emission Adjustments

Continuing our path to sustainable yield, we have further reduced block emissions from 7 per block to 6 per block.

New Partnerships & Integrations

We partnered with Brave Wallet in October, adding another multi-chain wallet to our supported wallets on THORSwap.

Alongside Brave Wallet, we also partnered with Pangolin DEX.
Pangolin is a DEX based on AVAX which is integrating our API to enable cross-chain swaps using our DEX Aggregator. Pangolin users will be able to swap from any ARC-20 to $DOGE, $ATOM, $BTC, $LTC, $BCH, $AVAX, $ETH and over 3,500 ERC20s tokens by using our Aggregator.
