What is BTC Standard Hashrate Token?
Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token, or BTCST, is a token collaterallised by the Bitcoin (BTC) hash rate. Like other hash rate tokens, it is a synthetic asset deriving its value from a portion of Bitcoin’s mining hash power. Each token represents 0.1 TH/s of Bitcoin mining power at 60 W/TH efficiency. The Bitcoin Standard Hashrate blog highlights that any miner/user can contribute power to the platform and receive BTCST tokens. The objective behind the token is to bring liquidity to Bitcoin mining and allow any user to gain exposure to mining rewards and hash power. The project launched in December 2020 on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). It is backed by industry-scale Bitcoin miners including Binance, Genesis Mining and Token Pocket. The project represents a claimed 12% of the global hash rate. Users can stake BTCST in the platform to receive daily BTC contributions. Rewards correspond to the staked mining power. Users can also earn BTCST tokens by locking up BNB, BUSD, and BTC into different pools.

What to consider when buying BTC Standard Hashrate TokenHashrate tokens are relatively new to the cryptocurrency industry and, therefore, risks should be evaluated thoroughly. Below are some factors to keep in mind before purchasing BTCST:
- Supply. At the time of writing, there is a circulating supply of approximately 8.4 million tokens. The maximum supply is capped at 15 million. The project has not experienced any private or public sales. BTCST tokens are only issued when eligible miners standardise and tokenise their BTC hash rate.
- Governance. The platform is governed in the form of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). This means it is a democratic, community-driven platform where token holders and miners have the authority to make decisions regarding development. The community can collectively decide on issues related to the project and participate in proposals.
- Community Redenomination Vote. The community of BTCST token holders initiated a proposal in February 2021 to vote for an adjustment to the issuance of tokens. A proposal was made to increase the maximum supply to 15 million. The overall value and market cap of the token remained the same. After the vote, all BTCST holdings increased by a ratio of 1:10. This means each BTCST token now represents 0.01TH/s, instead of the original 0.1TH/s. The redenomination enables more investor participation and meets the strong demand for the BTCST token.
