Discover our ongoing efforts to revolutionize the intersection of Bitcoin and the broader blockchain ecosystem. From Interlay's modular, programmable layer opening decentralized financial horizons for BTC, to BOB's pioneering hybrid Layer-2 solution bridging Bitcoin's security with Ethereum's innovation, delve into the future of decentralized finance and mass adoption.

BOB ("Build on Bitcoin") is a first-of-its-kind hybrid Layer-2 powered by Bitcoin and Ethereum. By combining the security, liquidity, userbase, and innovation of the two largest blockchain ecosystems, BOB closes the gap between Bitcoin as a vehicle for mass adoption and Ethereum as a hub for innovation.

This is achieved through BOB's rollup ecosystem that will use Bitcoin for security while enabling users to access all the on and off-ramps, dapps, stablecoins, NFTs, DeFi, etc. made possible by Ethereum's EVM. BOB is backed by Castle Island Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Mechanism Capital, Bankless Ventures, and other high-profile VCs and is positioned to become the most secure and accessible Layer-2 for builders and users.Interlay
