Why Thesis* is building Mezo BitcoinFi with tBTC


Welcome to a new frontier for bitcoin (BTC) holders with Mezo, a Bitcoin Finance (BitcoinFi) platform designed by Thesis* to enhance Bitcoin’s utility and create an unprecedented Bitcoin Economic Layer. By leveraging the strengths of tBTC and Acre, Mezo unlocks a whole new world for BTC holders. 

Why Mezo is Building BitcoinFi 

Bitcoin is renowned for offering freedom, privacy, and financial inclusion. However, its practical functionality remains limited. Explosive failures like that of BlockFi serve as a staunch reminder of the necessity for a robust, decentralized, and transparent financial ecosystem that truly serves the needs of bitcoin holders. Many projects aim to increase Bitcoin's utility, yet significant gaps persist. Mezo addresses these gaps by focusing on user needs, preserving Bitcoin’s key properties and creating useful Bitcoin applications.

The Bitcoin Economic Layer

Mezo focuses on the economic needs of BTC holders by creating the Bitcoin Economic Layer. Their approach focuses on wealth growth, community building, and productive use of BTC, all while ensuring user sovereignty, transparency, security, and decentralization. By addressing these core principles, Mezo aims to provide a comprehensive and accessible platform that empowers BTC holders to maximize the potential of their assets within a simple, robust and secure ecosystem. 

This world of BitcoinFi, brought to life by Mezo, creates a comprehensive financial ecosystem in which bitcoin is a store of value and a dynamic asset, powering a wide range of economic activities. Together, tBTC and Mezo make bitcoin "high-powered money" that serves as the reserve currency for a new, decentralized BTC-based financial system.

Bitcoin's transformation into a dynamic, yield-generating asset takes shape through 3 key pillars:

1️⃣ Threshold’s tBTC: the cross-chain coordination layer for BTC

2️⃣ Mezo: Infrastructure enabling a Bitcoin-focused DeFi ecosystem

3️⃣ Acre’s stBTC: Bitcoin-in, Bitcoin-out liquid staking platform

Here's a diagram of how these three pillars fit together to establish the foundation of BitcoinFi:

BitcoinFi Built on tBTC

Mezo is built on tBTC, which helps achieve Mezo’s vision of a decentralized and Bitcoin-first network. tBTC was built for this, and it will enable efficient and scalable decentralized BTC bridging to power Bitcoin’s Economic Layer. By building on tBTC, Mezo is not only providing a robust and secure solution for bitcoin holders but also fostering innovation in the Bitcoin ecosystem. This choice reflects our shared vision of a decentralized financial system where bitcoin plays a central role as both a store of value and a means of economic activity.
