Recent developments

The integration of Terra (LUNA), within the THORChain protocol has been a huge development for the $RUNE community. Nine Realms posted the announcement on Twitter (NYSE 🙂 March 1, 2022.

This integration allowed the platform to be used for all Cosmos-based projects.

Also, $UST and $LUNA have been added to the THORChain environment. This gives traders and staking users more options.

THORChain has also stated that the THORSwap exchange supports eight blockchains, six wallet types, and eight other crypto currencies. THORChain has added support for Monero as well as Have.

THORChain grew to 1.5 million in size. This was despite growing a network with 0 to 73 Nodes, and enduring chaos as it shipped over 81 major network update.

Future Events

A hard fork will update the THORChain network. This will be thoroughly tested in the testnet, followed by testing on Stagenet after Terra launches and ChaosNet before the mainnet launch.

Launch of the next mainnet was a long-awaited event. It was first planned for 2021. But, due to various factors, it has been delayed. It is not known when the mainnet will launch.

Prior to the mainnet’s launch, the requirements include fulfilling all testnet goals. These include rehearsal of adding or removing chains, ($BTC), and ($LTC) removal from the testnet. There will also be several runs of forking the chain.


  • It is evident that there is still high interest among the members of the community who have been loyal to each block.
