The past few months have seen increased traction for layer-2 network projects on Bitcoin. This comes as the Ordinals and BRC-20 token standard introduced in 2023 picks momentum.

Projects are looking to scale and bring more efficiency to the legacy blockchain, opening up the L1 blockchain to a new era of growth.

NFTs, gaming and DeFi are all sectors likely to explode on the Bitcoin network in coming months and years.

Currently, a number of BRC-20 tokens are seeing traction amid this developments as the sector’s market cap increases towards $3 billion. 

BEVM, which uses BTC as gas, will utilise the funding to expand its activities amid further decentralization of the Bitcoin ecosystem. As an EVM-compatible protocol, BEVM allows all dApps that can run on Ethereum operate on Bitcoin L2s.

Upcoming advancements include a Bitcoin layer-2 as a service platform “BEVM-Stack”. This is targeted at helping the burgeoning L2 ecosystem on Bitcoin, with developers able to launch applications with one-click.

BEVM also eyes a Decentralized Bitcoin Foreign Exchange (DBFX) protocol to bridge native BTC into any decentralised finance (DeFi) protocol.
