Pegged 1:1 with Bitcoin, RBTC, or “Smart Bitcoin”, is the currency used to execute smart contracts on Rootstock.

02.Change the game

Making DeFi on Bitcoin possible

RBTC is the “Smart” version of Bitcoin. It allows Bitcoin users to interact with smart contracts on the Rootstock network and acts as the gateway between Bitcoin and DeFi.

The price of RBTC is pegged directly to the price of BTC. Guaranteed by Rootstock’s built-in 2-Way Peg, one RBTC will always be convertible back to one BTC (and vice versa).

03.Only direct conversion

A true Bitcoin sidechain

Unlike other major blockchain networks, Rootstock does not generate its native coin through block rewards.

By using merged mining to leverage the security and resilience of Bitcoin, Rootstock can issue its native currency (RBTC) through a direct conversion from BTC.
