What is Stacks?

Stacks is a Bitcoin L2 (Layer-2) that enables smart contracts and decentralized applications to use Bitcoin as a secure base layer. In December 2022, the sBTC whitepaper was released along with plans for the 2024 Nakamoto Release which will bring faster speeds and transactions backed by 100% of Bitcoin's finality to the Stacks Layer. The launch of sBTC will unlock Bitcoin as a fully programmable, productive asset for countless use cases.
