What Is THORChain ?

Thorchain is a decentralized liquidity network that enables cross-chain liquidity pools with no wrapped or pegged tokens. Thorchain functions on these three key elements:

It also does not discriminate on any blockchain – chain-agnostic. This implies that, Thorchain users can connect and make use of any blockchain in a cross-chain network. A user is rewarded with the native token – RUNE whenever he/she stakes.

A Thorchain token user gets rewarded in three ways: when staking, when transferring value across chains and when running a validator node.
