What is sBTC (Stacks Bitcoin)?

sBTC is a new Bitcoin synthetic derivative that has a decentralized, two-way peg mechanism with Bitcoin. sBTC is unique in that it does not rely on a federation or custodian to facilitate the movement of BTC in and out of Bitcoin layers. Instead, it uses Stacks smart contracts that are capable of writing back to the Bitcoin mainchain in a trustless manner.
