XRUNE and its role in IDOs:

An IDO is an initial DEX offering. This is when a new token launches on a decentralised exchange like Sushi Swap. XRUNE is your key to participation, granting early access to exciting THORfi and Defi projects.


XRUNE has a total supply of 1 billion. 50% of this was made available on genesis, and the other 50% is vesting over several years. A detailed breakdown of this is shown in the table below.

How to purchase XRUNE:

XRUNE can currently be purchased on Sushi Swap. Once Thorchain restarts ERC-20 chains, it will be available here too.
