Can Stacks Scale Bitcoin?

Muneeb Ali is the Co-Creator of Stacks.

In this episode, we discuss whether Stacks can scale Bitcoin. Stacks can be thought of as a Bitcoin layer for smart contracts to build decentralized applications.

Muneeb guides us through everything you need to know as a new DeFi user on Stacks, including the hot debate over whether Stacks is an L2 or not, how to earn BTC by stacking STX, and the massive Nakamoto upgrade which will enable trustless bridging of native BTC from the Bitcoin network directly to Stacks L2.

🙏 Thanks for your patience with Muneeb’s audio. He had unfortunate challenges with his airpods recording and despite countless hours trying to improve it, we decided it was better to still publish this podcast.
