A true Bitcoin sidechain

On Rootstock, Bitcoin is king.
BTC is the native token of Rootstock in the form of RBTC. You don’t need any other token to pay for gas. Bitcoin can be moved between the main chain and sidechain seamlessly with no token wrapping required.



Yes, Rootstock has a native token called RBTC. RBTC is pegged 1:1 to Bitcoin and is used within the Rootstock network for various purposes, including paying transaction fees and executing smart contracts.

RBTC (Rootstock Bitcoin) is the native cryptocurrency of the Rootstock (RSK) blockchain. It is pegged 1:1 to Bitcoin (BTC), meaning that each RBTC is backed by an equivalent amount of BTC. RBTC is used to pay for transaction fees, execute smart contracts, and interact with decentralized applications (dApps) within the Rootstock ecosystem.

Smart contracts on Rootstock are executed on the Rootstock blockchain, which runs parallel to the Bitcoin network. Rootstock uses a two-way peg mechanism to bring Bitcoin into its ecosystem as RBTC. This allows users to leverage Bitcoin’s value and security while interacting with Turing-complete smart contracts on the Rootstock platform. Merge-mining with Bitcoin ensures that Rootstock benefits from Bitcoin’s high level of security.

Yes, Rootstock uses Solidity and is fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). This compatibility allows developers to easily port their existing Ethereum-based smart contracts and dApps to the Rootstock network without needing to make significant modifications.
