Thorwallet review

We saw what happened to Celsius users.  On June 12th, Celsius paused all the withdrawals, and finally, on July 13th, it filed bankruptcy, and now over $9B Celsius, crypto assets are locked in for a long long time.

This means that to own your crypto you should be in charge of the keys to your wallet. With THORWallet DEX, you’re on the right track. It is a noncustodial wallet where you can earn passive income on your assets without ever giving up control of your crypto. 

How does Thorwallet function? What kind of passive income can you make? Let’s find answers to all these questions.

What is THORWallet?

THORWallet DEX is part of the THORChain ecosystem. Their suite of products consists of a mobile app available for Android and iOS that has 30k downloads until now, and a Webapp where you can easily swap assets and earn via liquidity pooling.

Also, you can seamlessly switch between products. Their team is busy, and they regularly release new features and updates. Moreover, they are also the only noncustodial wallet where you can swap native tokens across chains.

What is cool, is that you can earn passive income on your assets. For example, on your native BTC, they currently offer 18%. You can also stake their native TGT token and earn a 12.61% APY. 

The coolest feature THORWallet DEX has is that it is powered by THORChain, the only chain where you can swap native coins across chains. For example, BTC to ETH. However, there’s lots more where that came from. Want to know more about Thorchain? Check out my Thorchain deep dive video. 


The team is on a constant search to add value to their TGT token. They build for mass adoption. It appears that they’re doing a good job. In a short time, they covered a lot of ground. So, let’s see which aces they have up their sleeve.

In addition, in mid-June, their web app came out of Beta. Now they run the V1 version. Among others, this offers:

  • Swapping and liquidity pooling.
  • xDeFi and Metamask integration. This allows you to use hard wallet options.

So, plenty of interesting features that you can easily check out by visiting the web app or downloading the app on your mobile. 

THORWallet Team

In contrast to THORChain’s anonymous team, the THORWallet DEX team has a face. They are not anon. We even caught their CEO in a YouTube interview

Marcel Robert Harmann is the Co-Founder and CEO. His background is in finance and IT. The perfect blockchain combination. In 2017, he got a Ph.D. in blockchain technology. Currently, in addition to THORWallet DEX, he is a University course director in blockchain & crypto finance.

Also, Harmann founded THORWallet DEX with Axelra. This is a Swiss Tech Venture Builder and they are co-owners behind THORWallet DEX. They are backed by some leading VCs’, for example:

  • THORChain
  • Contango
  • Nine realms
  • RBX
  • ZBS Capital
THORWallet Tokenomics

TGT, their native token is a multi-utility token. This includes:

  • Governance—Be a part of the platform’s future by taking part in votes. You need to hold GTG tokens before you can vote.
  • Staking—As already explained, there is a community tier setup. This has a variety of rewards.
  • Burn mechanism—A deflationary token.
  • Node operation—Help to secure the network by running a node.
  • Premium benefits—Stake GTG and enjoy their premium benefits.

Also, the community receives 40% of the tokens over time. This happens through an incentive mechanism in the wallet. For example, the ‘missions‘. These are available regularly. However, you can only complete them once. Completing a mission rewards you with some TGT as well. Current missions include:

  • Single swap of $1,000
  • Multiple swaps for $5,000
  • Multiple swaps for $15,000

Moreover, the app has a missions tab where you can see an overview of all missions. It also allows you to see newly released missions and your active missions. The current price of the TGT  token is $0.008354. That’s almost 6% up during the last 24 hours. During the last two weeks, it’s 7.8% up. The market cap is $1.94 million. TGT’s ATH came in at $0.135185 on December 25, 2021. It’s down 94% from that, just like many other coins at the moment.

Then, the max supply of TGT tokens is 1 billion tokens. A total of 232.5 million are currently in circulation. The community will receive 40% of tokens over time. This will happen through an incentive mechanism in the wallet.


On the other hand, the THORWallet DEX has a few competitors out there. The wallet market is big, and that includes noncustodial wallets. Then, the trust Wallet is one of many samples. They also have an AMM. But one thing that none of these competitors have, is native token cross-chain swaps.

That is the ultimate thing that makes THORWallet DEX stand out from the competition.


THORWallet DEX keeps building, and that’s good to see in the current market conditions. And they’re not done yet. For instance, expect a credit card service with KYC in Q1/Q2, 2023. Also in the works is an extended Swap functionality allowing swaps in +27 chains including all top EVMs. 

What makes them stand out is their unique native asset cross-chain swapping and their holistic approach. They want to offer all financial services like fiat on-off ramp, earning, borrowing, etc. Based on DeFi in a simple-to-use app. No other DEX in DeFi offers this.

Finally, they have a dedicated team that keeps hitting their roadmap marks. Hats off to them for achieving this.
