THORChain exchange expands in volume

THORChain's THORWallet decentralized exchange (DEX) surpassed a total trading volume of $200 million, as per an official update on X released on Saturday. The development comes on the heels of a temporary swap pause on THORChain's THORSwap DEX after the chain’s transaction volume surpassed $1 billion in a matter of a few days. 

On October 6, reports of illicit transfers on the chain prompted THORSwap exchange to suspend cryptocurrency swaps. While it continued providing liquidity, earning interest, borrowing, and staking, during this period, swaps only resumed on October 12. 

THORChain is seeing a total of 79,740 unique addresses and 12,153,256 transactions involving swaps, additions, and withdrawals. 

With a block height of 13 million, the network activity has been robust. The total supply of the native RUNE coin is valued at close to $813 million, based on data from THORChain Explorer.

RUNE token achieves stability 

The RUNE coin price action has been stable within a trading range of $1.63 to $1.75 on Monday.  The price action has been positive since THORSwap resumed swapping operations. 

CoinGecko notes a 3% increase in price over the last 24-hour time frame and a 5% increase over the last week. With a circulating supply of 300 million RUNE, the market capitalization of THORChain’s token currently sits at $504.5 million.

The price of the RUNE token is showing signs of stability and could only experience moderate volatility. This steady trend is expected to persist unless unforeseen factors, such as renewed concerns over more illicit transfers, come to light.
