A Primer on BitU Protocol

The Bitcoin-backed Decentralized Yield-bearing Stablecoin Primitive

Stablecoins often rely on centralized processes and entities, which undermines the core principles of decentralization and introduces significant risks. Centralized control over underlying assets and opaque operations are key concerns that make these stablecoins less reliable and trustworthy for users seeking true financial sovereignty.

In the DeFi space, stablecoins are essential for liquidity pools, lending protocols, and as a stable store of value. They also bridge the gap between traditional finance and DeFi, providing a gateway for new users and institutions to engage with blockchain-based financial services. BitU Protocol is uniquely positioned at this intersection, leveraging its capabilities to enhance both DeFi and CeFi ecosystems by offering a robust and transparent stablecoin solution.

BitU Protocol offers a USD-pegged stablecoin primitive that provides stability and embedded yield. Unlike other stablecoin protocols, BitU leverages a combination of on-chain transparency and off-chain capital efficiency through its Active Liquidity Management Module (ALMM). This innovative approach ensures that users receive consistent yields while maintaining the stability of the $BITU token.

$BITU is the primary stablecoin issued by the BitU Protocol, backed by overcollateralization with assets such as Bitcoin. The minimum collateralization ratio for $BITU is set at 150%, meaning that to mint 100 $BITU, a user must provide at least $150 worth of BTC or other collateral assets. This overcollateralization ensures that the value of $BITU remains stable even if the price of the collateral falls.

Holders of $BITU can stake to receive $sBITU, a yield-bearing token that appreciates over time as it reflects the generated yield from borrow and lending, and market-neutral strategies executed by our reputable partner brokers. These strategies have been rigorously vetted for performance and reliability, ensuring that users receive stable and sustainable returns. $sBITU represents shares of the protocol's earnings, which are distributed directly to stakers.

Collateral assets backing the $BITU stablecoin are never directly traded or moved in order to generate yield for $sBITU. Instead, collateral assets are deposited into secure, onchain custodial addresses and mirrored into the trade strategies that generate yield. BitU Protocol partnered with Ceffu, a licensed institutional custody and liquidity solutions platform, to leverage their innovative MirrorX solution, ensuring the safety of user deposits.

BitU Protocol differs from our competitors by delivering trustless verification of user deposits, all-weather yield generation, and an overcollateralization mechanism to ensure stability without compromises.

BitU Protocol addresses the key challenges faced by current stablecoins by offering a decentralized, transparent, and yield-generating stablecoin solution. By leveraging a diversified yield strategy and innovative mechanisms to protect users' assets, BitU Protocol stands out as a superior choice for those seeking stability and sustainable returns in both DeFi and CeFi environments. Through its robust infrastructure and strategic positioning, BitU is poised to become a foundational element in the future of digital finance.
