logoBitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (BTCST)

A Token Collateralized by Bitcoin Hashrate on Binance Smart Chain.
  • Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (BTCST) is a token collateralized by 0.1 TH/s of actual Bitcoin mining power standardized to an efficiency of 60 W/TH.
  • Miners contribute mining power to the platform in exchange for newly issued BTCST.
  • BTCST is the native BEP-20 utility token of the platform. Holding BTCST is equivalent to owning the underlying mining power. Staking BTCST on-chain entitles staking users to receive mining rewards in Bitcoin.
  • All BTCST tokens other than the initial circulating supply of 1,000,000 are subject to a 25-week weekly linear vesting schedule.

1. What is Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (BTCST)?

Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (BTCST) brings liquidity to Bitcoin mining. Each BTCST is collateralized by 0.1 TH/s of real Bitcoin mining power. By staking BTCST, holders will receive daily Bitcoin distributions that correspond to the mining power staked.

BTCST creates an efficient market among Bitcoin miners. By trading BTCST, market participants can freely enter and exit Bitcoin mining exposure in any size, at any time, and with low costs. Miners without mining power tokenized by BTCST can also make use of the token to hedge against the risks of mining machine cost price fluctuations.

The project team and the partnering mining pool, Binance Pool, will form a governance board that collectively decides on material issues of the project, which include new token issuances, cost level adjustments, surplus profit distribution, and future development. The governance board will have three seats upon launch, two of which to be occupied by the project team and one by the partnering mining pool.
