About Stacks

What is Stacks (STX)?

Stacks is a Bitcoin layer that enables dApps, NFTs, and smart contracts to settle transactions on the Bitcoin Blockchain. It extends Bitcoin's functionality beyond a peer-to-peer transaction blockchain by associating smart contracts, dApps, and other Web 3 capabilities with it. STX is the native currency of Stacks, which rewards miners on the Stacks, pays transaction fees, and fuels smart contracts.

The project was started in late 2017 by developers Muneeb Ali, Ryan Shea, and others. They were working on building something on Bitcoin L1 when they estimated how a separate layer on Bitcoin could scale its use cases without compromising security following the fact that Stacks' mainnet was made live in 2021.

Every transaction on the Stacks layer automatically gets settled and hashed on the Bitcoin L1 and thus is secure by Bitcoin's security. To enable all this, Stacks uses a novel consensus mechanism, Proof of Transfer (PoX), that establishes a seamless connection between Bitcoin and Stacks layers. This PoX consensus is similar to the PoW (Proof of work) consensus of Bitcoin. Identical to how PoW miners spend electricity and resources and get rewards in BTC, Stacks PoX miners spend the already mined BTC to win rewards in STX tokens. It has a total supply of 1.82 billion and undergoes halving every four years, like Bitcoin. It is expected that this supply will be released entirely by 2050.

How does Stacks (STX) work?

Stacks (STX) is a Layer 1 on the Bitcoin blockchain that enables Bitcoin-based DeFi applications and stablecoins. It leverages the Bitcoin blockchain for identity verification and data settlement, allowing the users to transact with it as currency.

To secure itself, the Stacks layer uses a new consensus mechanism, Proof of Transfer (PoX), which is distinct from energy-intensive computation mining like Bitcoin. PoX requires the miners to "transfer" BTC to other Stacks network participants to become eligible to mine a new block. Since Stacks can read the state of the Bitcoin blockchain, it then verifies whether the miner has completed this step.

Once validated, a winner miner is randomly selected to receive STX rewards and transaction fees. The probability of winning a block depends on the amount of Bitcoin spent per block by the miner. It also randomly selects the participant for transferring Bitcoin. This selection happens from those STX token holders who lock their STX to participate in the network consensus.

Anyone willing to mine STX needs to have a Bitcoin and a Stacks wallet. While a Bitcoin wallet helps miners transfer BTC and earn a chance to win a Stacks block reward, the Stacks wallet is necessary to receive the STX rewards after successfully mining a block in the Stacks blockchain. 

The Stacks ecosystem also has a "Stacking" feature to simplify token locking for STX token holders. This feature differs from the staking feature in the PoS (Proof of Stake) blockchains. While the reward in the PoS staking is in the same staking token, the STX stacking yield comes in the "burn chain" token, which is BTC in this case. The Bitcoins miners transfer to become eligible for a new Stack block are distributed to the stacking participants. So far, over 2000 BTC has been distributed in the stacking reward.

To further provide a seamless experience to its users, Stacks uses the modern and secure Clarity programming language for developers to develop smart contracts on the Bitcoin blockchain. The best thing about Clarity language is that its smart contracts are human-readable, making it possible to understand what the program can do from the code itself. It also facilitates users to set up their conditions for smart contract transactions.

An innovation within the Stacks ecosystem is the sBTC, a programmable Bitcoin-backed asset in 1:1 proportion. This asset enables smart contracts to write Bitcoin blockchain transactions without changing the source code. sBTC settles transactions with Bitcoin finality but at a low cost without any custodial fees. It aims to explore the new functionalities and new cases possible with the Bitcoin blockchain. These functionalities involve BTC on-chain lending and borrowing like DeFi, NFTs, DAO crowdfunding on the Bitcoin blockchain, .btc domain names, and many more.
