Our infrastructure lets applications on any chain use native Bitcoin, locked in escrow in the user’s wallet
Bitcoin escrow contracts can be built into applications on any chain -- Stacks, Ethereum, Avalanche, Solana and more!
Stacks mining requires a large amount of Bitcoin in order to participate successfully.
Therefore, there is a need for having the ability for pooling together multiple users’ Bitcoin to be an effective miner.
Syvita is taking on this challenge with the Syvita Stacks Mining Pools.
Arkadiko is a decentralized, non-custodial liquidity protocol where users can collateralize their STX tokens and borrow a stablecoin called USDA.
It enables you to gain increased liquidity in the form of a soft-pegged US Dollar stablecoin, while maintaining original asset exposure.
A big challenge and risk today is using Bitcoin in DeFi.
Because the Bitcoin blockchain does not natively communicate with other blockchains, there isn't a secure way to transfer, deposit, or lend your Bitcoin out without entrusting a custodian such as wBTC and opening yourself up to smart contract and third-party risk.
