If you had been using THORChain, you would have known earlier that it has a Savers Vault that went live in November last year.

What are Savers Vault

It is a new, permission-less, open-source and decentralized self-custody solution for users to provide single-asset liquidity on THORChain, allowing them to earn yield on native assets without price exposure to any other assets including RUNE. (Source)

In simple words, they are single-asset staking pools where the yield earned is the same native asset that you have staked. Deposit ETH and you earn ETH. Stake ATOM and you earn ATOM.

Native Assets Available on the Savers Vault


  • Single-asset liquidity
  • Earn yield the same as deposited asset
  • No need to wrap assets
  • No impermanent loss risk or price exposure to multiple assets
  • Users maintain full control of their keys so the can withdraw their assets any time.
  • Variable APRs because the yields are dependent on the swap fees etc.


The vaults are not risk-free and there are certain risks as follows:

  • Temporary Chain Halt The chain can temporarily stop trading for blockchains individually or collectively if there's any issue is detected.

  • Slip-Based Fee Upon Entry and Exit Users are charged a slippage fee when entering or exiting a Savers Vault.

  • Severe Drawdown of ASSET Depth in THORChain Pools Savers may pay higher exit fees than their entry fees if the asset depths are significantly lower than when they entered the vault.

  • Network Loss of Funds Savers can lose their funds when there's any network exploits.

How to Enter the Savers Vault via THORSwap Earn

NOTE: Pay attention to the slippage fee. The higher amount you deposit, the higher the fee.


You can then check your yields, add more or withdraw your liquidity through THORSwap Earn and clicking on "My Positions."

Personal Thoughts

The Savers Vault is good for those who are just holding their assets for long term and not doing anything with them. Personally, I consider this as a better and less-risky alternative for some of my idle crypto assets than keeping them on centralized exchanges. It's another way to slowly grow my holdings in their native form since there is no need to wrap them.

Do bear in mind that as mentioned above, there are risks associated with this type of investment.
