What better way to battle volatility than an interest rate of 18%? With its listing and promo rate, RUNE becomes the second highest-yielding asset on our platform, only bested by AXS! As with all assets on Nexo, interest is paid out daily. The rates on each Loyalty Tier are as follows:

  • Platinum: 15%; on Fixed Term & Earn in NEXO: 18%

About THORChain

Popular DEX infrastructures come with certain limitations. Perhaps the most glaring one is the inability to trade cryptocurrencies across different blockchains without wrapping. THORChain fixes this problem by introducing THORNodes. They are comprised of THORChain nodes and a node for each supported chain, which validate the transactions. On THORChain, trader fees and validators/liquidity providers rewards are paid in RUNE. The asset is also used for THORChain governance.

¹The amount of free crypto you receive depends on your Loyalty tier. The higher your tier, the more crypto you get. Ex. Platinum users get the full 0.5% of their original transaction in crypto rewards.
²The Earn Crypto Interest Product is not available for citizens or residents of certain jurisdictions, including where restrictions may apply, such as USA, Bulgaria, Estonia.
