Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC)

Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) is an ERC20 token backed 1:1 with Bitcoin held in custody by the BitGo custodian

WBTC is available for trading on DeversiFi against ETH and USDt

This community-driven token aims to standardize Bitcoin to the ERC20 format. The proof of reserve is on-chain, which shows the exact 1:1 between minted WBTC tokens and Bitcoin stored by the BitGo custodian. WBTC token holders can directly redeem WBTC for the underlying BTC collateral by on-boarding directly with BitGo 

Developed by the teams behind Kyber Network, Bitgo and Republic Protocol, WBTC (Wrapped Bitcoin) is a Bitcoin backed ERC20 token on Ethereum, with the goal of bringing BTC liquidity to Ethereum-based DEXs and Dapps. The WBTC framework is controlled and governed by the WBTC DAO consisting of participating merchants, custodians and other relevant organisations. Learn more about WBTC.
