Reactivated Ethereum pools trigger a 78% surge in THORChain price

Reactivated Ethereum pools trigger a 78% surge in THORChain price

RUNE looks ready to extend its gains after the reactivation of ETH-based pools resulted in a 78% rally last week.

Ealier this year THORChain underwent a series of protocol exploits which led to $8 million being drained from its reserves and these successive attack took a heavy tool on RUNE price. This week, the protocol announced that it would re-open its Ethereum pool, along with other altcoin and BTC-based pools and the announcement appears to be having a positive impact on RUNE price.

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that since hitting a low of $2.95 on July 20, the price of RUNE has increased 283% to a$11.64 and there is also a noticable uptick in trading volume.

Two reasons behind the recovery and building strength seen in RUNE include the relaunching of trading capabilities on all five supported blockchains including the Ethereum (ETH) network and the upcoming launch of multiple new projects on the THORChain network.

Ethereum pools are open

The main development driving the momentum behind RUNE has been the reactivation of trading services across all supported blockchain networks, with Ethereum reopening on Oct. 21.

Trading activity was restricted following the April hack and after checking through the code again, the Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Binance Coin (BNB), Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) pools in the process of being reopened.

According to data provided by THORChain, the pent up demand for trading on the protocol was demonstrated by the near instant $2 million in trading volume for ERC-20 tokens minutes after the pool re-opened.

Future airdrops and token launches

Another reason for the bullish price move for RUNE is the upcoming launch of multiple new projects on the THORChain network which will soon be listed on the Thorstarter (XRUNE) platform, which is a decentralized launchpad for the RUNE ecosystem.

Some of the major upcoming launches include THORSwap, THORWallet, Brokkr Finance, Skipp Swap, DeFiSwap and XDEFI wallet.
