THORChain is building a state-of-the-art distributed network to enable cross-chain asset exchange with incentivised, always-on liquidity and no wrapped or pegged tokens. The network is THORChain and the THORNode software, powered by CosmosSDK and Tendermint consensus. THORNode facilitates state-pegs to any external network (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Chain) and manages a multi-party computation protocol with threshold signatures to enable outgoing transactions. The team is passionate, self-driven, industry leaders whose mission is to build permissionless access to liquidity. The project is well funded and growing quickly.
The team is publicly psuedo-anonymous to ensure the project is delivered with the right characteristics, though this is an individual choice. Shipping code is more important than anything else. The team leverage agile methodologies to move quickly and stay focused. Communication is important and the team relies heavily on Slack, Zoom, and GitLab to help stay in sync. Everything is open source and available on GitLab.
