BTC to wBTC or wBTC to BTC – Swap BTC to Wrapped BTC

Swap Bitcoin (BTC) to Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC)

Swapping Bitcoin (BTC) for Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC) is a safe and straightforward process with Zengo. Trade your Bitcoin for Wrapped Bitcoin so that you can interact on the Ethereum blockchain with the state-of-the-art Zengo wallet app today.

Bitcoin (BTC) is the very first cryptocurrency, designed as a peer-to-peer payment system that functions entirely decentrally. The author of the bitcoin white paper calls himself Satoshi Nakamoto, but who is behind this pseudonym is unknown. Although Bitcoin is the most valuable cryptocurrency to date, its network can only handle 7 transactions per second, making it a great store of value but less effective for payment transactions when compared with other solutions. Bitcoin uses a proof-of-work consensus mechanism, which means that miners validate transactions by using computational power to solve complex mathematical equations. These miners get rewarded with new Bitcoins as a reward and secure the network. 

Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC) is a token that reflects the value of Bitcoin (BTC) that is interoperable with the Ethereum blockchain. This means that Bitcoin can be used as an ERC-20 token through the use of Wrapped Bitcoin. The wBTC protocol is controlled by a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that consists of 17 members using a multi-signature wallet. Note that although Wrapped Bitcoin is a 1:1 representation of the underlying asset Bitcoin, users still pay gas fees when transacting on the ERC-20 (Ethereum) blockchain.
