On April 23, 2023. THORSwap Improvement Proposal [TIP-001] Community Incentives Burn passed in majority favour (99.53%) to begin a token burn of non-circulating supply from Community Incentives Allocation, consisting of:

  1. Initial burn of 30M $THOR from Community Incentives allocation (this more than offset all Staking Pool emissions up to that point (~27M).

  2. For 3 months, at the conclusion of each month, burn 3 times the emitted tokens during that month IF THORSwap’s trading volume surpasses the monthly volume target of 8M $RUNE.


On Aug 3, 2023, this was further amended in [TIP-003] Continuation of Monthly Volume Target Based Burn where voting passed in favour to:

  1. Continue burning 3 times the emitted tokens from the Community Incentives pool IF THORSwap’s trading volume surpasses the volume target for that month.

  2. Implement a sliding monthly volume target starting in August 2023:

    • If the volume target is reached, the following month's target increases by 1M RUNE

    • If the volume target is NOT reached, next month's target decreases by 1M RUNE

  3. Enable a burn multiplier on top of the monthly burn based on volume % above the target. Where each +1% volume is equal to an additional 1% bonus after 3x Emissions up to a hard cap of 300% multiplier.


On February 15, 2024, $THOR burn was again amended by community approval of [TIP-007] Amend Monthly $THOR BURN logic to:

  1. Change monthly target denomination from $RUNE to US Dollar value

  2. Change sliding volume target mechanism to:

    • If the volume target is reached, increase by 5% following month.

    • If the volume target is NOT reached, decrease by 5% following month.

  3. Remove the 300% multiplier hard cap.
