What is the THORChain (RUNE) Price Prediction?

Although it is impossible to make an accurate THORChain price prediction over any duration, the protocol has solid fundamentals that suggest a future pick-up in the RUNE price. As of August 2022, the THORChain price remains well below its all-time high of above $21.

Based on its price performance, the THORChain price forecast suggests an uptick towards reclaiming the ATH level backed by supporting fundamentals. Integration with more blockchains to increase its cross-chain liquidity ecosystem’s scope could power an uptrend in the THORChain price in the future.

In addition, higher adoption of its technology could also power bullish moves in the RUNE price and increase the value of THORChain crypto as a good investment opportunity. The current price of THORChain and market cap could also head higher amid generally positive sentiment in the crypto market.

As the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum tick higher, investor confidence in digital assets could pick up. This could encourage more buying activity in THORChain and propel the RUNE price upwards, making it an exciting crypto asset to invest in.

What is RUNE Token Used For?

The RUNE token is the native digital asset of THORChain and powers the network. It has several applications, including:

Liquidity Token

The RUNE crypto is locked in THORChain liquidity pools with external crypto assets in a 50:50 ratio. As the value of the crypto assets locked in liquidity pools fluctuates, the RUNE in the pool will also vary through arbitrage.

Security Token

The THORChain uses a proof of bond consensus mechanism. Each THORNode bonds a specific number of RUNE within the network, which is then used to underwrite assets in the liquidity pools. The bonded RUNE is also used to penalize any misbehaving THORChain nodes to ensure network security.

Governance Token

RUNE token holders enjoy priority in listing new assets in a liquidity pool. THORNodes can also vote on changing network parameters within the THORChain ecosystem using a node-mimir mechanism.

Incentive Token

As the native cryptocurrency of the THORChain network, the RUNE token is used to pay transaction fees by users. Token swaps on the ecosystem are charged network fees and slip-based fees in RUNE crypto.

Crypto Asset to Trade and HODL

THORChain (RUNE) is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies listed and traded on exchanges. To maximize your portfolio value, you can buy or sell THORChain against other cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and even fiat currencies.

You also have the option to HODL RUNE long-term if you believe in the future potential of the THORChain protocol. Review the current THORChain price, RUNE live market cap, current circulating supply, and 24-hour trading volume, and perform technical, sentiment, and fundamental analysis on the RUNE price chart before you trade THORChain.

Earn exciting daily interest over seven days, 14 days, or 28 days, for your contribution and grow your RUNE holdings by putting your crypto to work.

How Many RUNE Tokens Are There?

The RUNE crypto has a max supply fixed at 500 million by the THORChain developers. As of August 2022, the circulating supply of the THORChain token stands at over 330 million.

During the THORChain IDO in July 2019, the project developers allotted 10% of the token’s total supply to themselves and locked them till the mainnet launch. 20% of these tokens have been unlocked every month since then.

Most of the allocated tokens were sold to raise funds for developing the THORChain protocol. At the time of writing, the team of developers behind the project owns less than 1% of the max supply of RUNE crypto.
