Bringing Bitcoin to DeFi

DeFi is blockchain’s first killer app, with assets locked up approaching $1 billion USD. But one major asset is missing: Bitcoin. Bitcoin is not only the first crypto asset, but the largest - with over $168 billion USD of Bitcoin in circulation it has deep pools of liquidity. It is one of the least volatile cryptocurrencies and has a large network of fiat on and off ramps. All these properties make it a great crypto-collateral. We think Bitcoin has the potential to transform the DeFi landscape as the most widespread and liquid asset available today.
