Singapore, Singapore--(Newsfile Corp. - March 22, 2024) - Today Elastos, a pioneer in blockchain technology, announces BTC Oracle, a radical new solution that will enable every EVM-compatible blockchain to be a Bitcoin Layer 2, representing the most comprehensive solution for cross-chain operability enabling dormant Bitcoin to used on all Blockchains. The BTC Oracle is part of Elastos's Bitcoin Layer 2 (BeL2), BeL2, the first Bitcoin Layer 2 to enable the direct development and management of Bitcoin-native smart contracts. Elastos's Bitcoin Layer 2 BTC Oracle acts as a zero-knowledge proof (ZPK) data feed that provides real-time Bitcoin information to EVM smart contracts. 

Elastos's native token (ELA) has been merge-mined with Bitcoin since 2018. BeL2 is a suite of technologies consisting of a BTC Oracle that inputs Bitcoin-related data to EVM contracts. This includes an application layer; an ELA-powered relay network which further decentralises the process and reduces the reliance on a single point of failure; and the BTC Oracle which generates zero-knowledge proofs and transmits events from BTC to the EVM contract. In its most streamlined form, BeL2 Oracle empowers the most straightforward yet comprehensive solution for cross-chain operability involving Bitcoin and EVMs.

Speaking on the launch of BTC Oracle, Sasha Mitchel, Head of Bitcoin Layer 2 at Elastos, said, "BTC Oracle and BeL2 leverages the most intuitive yet advanced aspects of cryptographic verification to expand Bitcoin's utility in the DeFi space and beyond, all while staying true to its roots of decentralisation and privacy. With BTC Oracle, we can open up an amazing future for new financial products and use cases on bitcoin through decentralized applications like BTC lending, BRC20 Indexing, Algorithmic Stable Coin Issuance, and more."
