WRAPPED BITCOIN History / Information / Buying / Staking

  • WRAPPED BITCOIN HISTORY

    Wrapped BTC, or WBTC, was launched on January 30, 2019, and it is the first ERC-20 token that is backed by Bitcoin at a 1:1 ratio. In some way, it can be identified as a stablecoin though it is disputable if Bitcoin can be called a "stable" asset. WBTC represents a custodian model of the Bitcoin tokenization.

  • HOW WRAPPED BITCOIN WORKS

    Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) is an ERC-20 token that represents Bitcoin (BTC) on the Ethereum blockchain. A key advantage of WBTC is its integration into the world of Ethereum wallets, dapps, and smart contracts. Through a WBTC partner, 1 Bitcoin can be converted to 1 Wrapped Bitcoin, and vice-versa. WBTC was created to allow Bitcoin holders to participate in decentralized finance (“DeFi”) apps that are popular on Ethereum.

  • BENEFITS OF USING WRAPPED BITCOIN

    Some of the benefits of using Wrapped Bitcoin are:

    LIQUIDITY
    Another significant advantage wBTC brings to the market is greater liquidity. The Ethereum ecosystem is diverse and spread out. This distribution of funds can create a scenario where DEXs (decentralized exchanges) and other platforms lack the necessary liquidity to function optimally.

    SCALABILITY
    Scalability is another major advantage gained from wrapping your Bitcoin. Since wrapped tokens exist on Ethereum’s blockchain, rather than Bitcoin’s directly, transactions conducted with wBTC are faster and cost less. Additionally, you have more transaction and storage options.

    NEW FUNCTIONALITIES
    Wrapped BTC provides users with more functionality compared to regular BTC. For example, wBTC can leverage Ethereum’s robust smart contracts.
