BTCFi is a Bitcoin-based DeFi platform that extends the use of Bitcoin from centralized services to the decentralized ecosystem, enhancing its mainstream adoption. Following the Pre-Launch event on March 14th, we are thrilled to announce the official launch of BTCFi, the Bitcoin-centric asset management platform, with the unveiling of our testnet today.

BTCFi — Bitcoin-based Asset Management Platform

BTCFi allows users to deposit Bitcoin and mint BtcUSD, a stablecoin backed by Bitcoin collateral, all in a completely decentralized manner. In our newly unveiled BTCFi Testnet, users can deposit WBTC and BTCB from the Bifrost Network to mint BtcUSD, enabling a seamless transition to Bitcoin-backed stablecoin assets. Minted BtcUSD can be utilized as assets on BiFi, a cross-chain deposit and lending service, and Everdex, a decentralized exchange. Unlike single staking services, BTCFi offers diverse asset utilization beyond Bitcoin staking with BtcUSD.

BTCFi aims to revolutionize the DeFi space by providing various use cases for Bitcoin as an asset within DeFi and contributing to the innovation of Bitcoin-based DeFi ecosystems.
