Swaps on the THORchain

Assets on linked chains or assets connected to the network can be swapped. Users can swap any asset from any connected chain or asset to any other asset on the network, or to RUNE, if they want to.

The idea behind THORChain liquidity pools is that swaps are possible by combining assets deposited by liquidity providers into one pool. For example, a pool may consist of Bitcoin and RUNE, THORChain’s own asset.These pools are referred to as Continuous Liquidity Pools, since RUNE, which is in each one, links them all together to create a continuous liquidity network.

THORChain swaps 2 belongings between two pools every time a user swaps 2 assets. Swap to RUNE in the first pool,move the RUNE into the second pool, and swap to the desired asset in the second pool with the RUNE from the second pool. This swap is handled by the THORChain state machine all at once, so RUNE is never handled by the user.
