StratoVM: Bringing Scalable and Secure DeFi to Bitcoin

Press Releases

The world of decentralized finance (DeFi) is rapidly evolving, and the need for a scalable and secure infrastructure on Bitcoin has never been more pressing. As the demand for decentralized financial services continues to grow, StratoVM has emerged as a compelling solution that addresses the limitations of existing platforms, offering uncompromising security, scalability, and performance, as well as compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

At its core, StratoVM is a Layer 2 solution that bridges the gap between Ethereum’s thriving DeFi ecosystem and Bitcoin’s rock-solid foundation. By anchoring data hashes on the Bitcoin blockchain, StratoVM inherits the security properties of the Bitcoin network, ensuring that DeFi applications built on StratoVM benefit from Bitcoin’s unparalleled security and decentralization.

One of the key advantages of StratoVM is its ability to provide lightning-fast transaction speeds and ultra-low fees. With a block time of just 2 seconds, StratoVM outperforms Bitcoin’s mainnet, enabling seamless DeFi experiences for users.

StratoVM’s modular design allows for customization and flexibility, with core modules that include Avail DA for cost-effective and secure storage of compressed transactions, data validation through anchoring on Bitcoin’s immutable blockchain, Optimism’s OP Stack modified to support Bitcoin, and EVM equivalence, enabling seamless migration of Ethereum dApps to Bitcoin.

StratoVM is built upon the groundbreaking technology and concepts pioneered by the Bitcoin Virtual Machine (BVM) project. By leveraging BVM’s core components, such as the Local Mempool, TxWriter, and TxReader, StratoVM can execute and validate smart contracts on the Bitcoin blockchain, unlocking a world of possibilities for DeFi. Additionally, StratoVM implements a modified version of the OP-stack, inspired by BVM’s proposed architecture for BVM Chains, adding support for Bitcoin and the BVM.

This week, StratoVM opened the doors of its testnet, inviting developers, users, and protocols to join the vanguard of innovators building the future of DeFi on Bitcoin’s secure foundation.

Comprehensive documentation, tutorials, and quick-start guides will be provided to help developers hit the ground running, ensuring a seamless transition to the StratoVM ecosystem.

“We are thrilled to invite the DeFi community to join us on this journey of bringing scalable and secure decentralized finance to Bitcoin,” said Manuel, co-founder of StratoVM. “With StratoVM, we are leveraging the power of Bitcoin’s security while offering the performance and flexibility needed for DeFi applications to thrive.”
