BITCOIN on ETHEREUM? (renBTC, wBTC, tBTC, sBTC) | DEFI Explained

So Bitcoin on Ethereum – a good or a bad idea? What are the use cases for moving your precious BTC to Ethereum? What are the risks? And what are the protocols that make all of this possible? You’ll find answers to these questions in this video.

Okay, so let’s start with why someone would want to move their Bitcoin to Ethereum in the first place?

The short answer is decentralized finance. Let’s try to understand why this is the case.

DeFi took the whole crypto space by storm, showing that payments is not the only area of finance that can be decentralized. In fact, DeFi focuses on rebuilding all financial services in a completely decentralized, open and permissionless way. On top of that, it allows for creating financial applications that were previously just impossible to make.

sBTC, wBTC, renBTC and tBTC can all trade at slightly different prices, usually at a premium to the actual BTC price. This is mainly because the demand for each of these tokens is different. Also, for all but sBTC, it matters how hard it is to redeem the underlying BTC.
