BounceBit’s core innovation lies in our BTC Restaking solution, offering shared security across our ecosystem. BounceBit will build a plethora of infrastructure, exploring the use cases of restaking for the extensive Bitcoin asset class. These infrastructure components are called Shared-Security Clients (SSC).

BounceBit’s first showcase of the SSC is our BTC Restaking Chain. The BounceBit chain is a PoS Layer 1 secured by validators staking both BTC and BounceBit’s native token – A dual-token system leveraging native Bitcoin’s security with full EVM compatibility. Unlike existing Layer 2 solutions, BounceBit interacts with Bitcoin only on the asset level instead of the protocol level, taking a Layer 1 Proof-of Stake approach. BTC Restaking provides shared security to infrastructure and DApps on BounceBit, e.g. bridges and oracles will be validated by restaked BTC.

Another highlight of BounceBit is its transparent CeFi foundation that secures users’ assets via the regulated custody of Mainnet Digital and Ceffu, while leveraging on-chain asset traceability. Through an innovative CeFi + DeFi infrastructure, BounceBit empowers BTC holders to earn yield through delta-neutral strategies, whilst being additionally protected by an insurance fund.

BounceBit has strategically selected BTCB on the BNB Chain as its primary restaking asset. This choice aligns with BounceBit’s foundational philosophy of expanding the possibilities within the BTC asset class, while also leveraging the most actively traded BTC, often found on EVM chains and centralized exchanges such as Binance.

Looking ahead, BounceBit’s roadmap is structured towards the Testnet Launch on March 8th, Mainnet Launch in April coinciding with the Bitcoin Halving, and ecosystem building for the rest of 2024.
