Thorchain – Is there a correlation between RUNE token price and currency swaps?

ThorChain is a decentralized liquidity network with an interoperable blockchain that allows users to exchange tokens across multiple chains in a non-custodial way. There is no asset peg or asset wrapping in this project; instead, users are able to exchange tokens across various Layer 1 blockchains. ThorChain offers seamless trading between several digital assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Polkadot, etc. without the need to register for an exchange or go through KYC, as in the case of CEXs. This reduces the risk of exposure to counterparty and custody risks to an absolute minimum.
