What is renBTC?
RENBTC is an ERC-20 token developed for the Ethereum blockchain. It is minted by the Ren Protocol and its value is pegged 1:1 to the value of Bitcoin (BTC). Outlined on Ren’s website, the Ren protocol (previously known as Republic Protocol) enables the permissionless and trustless transfer of value between blockchains. RENBTC is the decentralised finance (DeFi) version of WBTC (Wrapped Bitcoin) and was created to bring BTC across to Ethereum based decentralised applications (dApps). Any dApp on Ethereum can use the Ren interoperability layer in smart contracts to allow for functionality. Currently, Ren supports the transfer of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and ZCash (ZEC). Transfers are facilitated by the RenVM (Ren Virtual Machine), which converts smart contracts to readable code for computers. The Ren network is secured by nodes which makes it easier to transfer BTC coins from the Bitcoin blockchain onto the Ethereum blockchain as RENBTC. Unlike other Bitcoin-backed tokens, it does not rely on a liquidity mechanism. Instead, it is a direct supply peg, which means there is BTC in reserve to cover the circulating supply of RENBTC. The tokens can be used for trading and other operations throughout the DeFi ecosystem.
