Phala Network Partners with Bitcoin Gold to develop Lightweight Cross-Chain Bridges to the Polkadot Ecosystem for BTG and other Bitcoin-Based Chains
Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and Phala Network are happy to announce a project partnership to develop lightweight, low-cost, trustless bridges by leveraging Phala’s TEE-based confidential computing technology. BTG will be the first asset bridged, but the project is being built to work with tokens from any blockchain based on bitcoin’s underlying technology, including LTC, BCH, DOGE, BSV, and other long-tail offshoots of Bitcoin. This will provide a path for the liquidity of the $36 billion market value of this coin family into the Polkadot ecosystem for use in smart contracts, DeFi, DEXes, and more.
The joint Phala/BTG team’s confidence in this approach rests on three pillars:
open-source bridges like Interlay’s PolkaBTC have been demonstrated, but require deep-pocketed backers for security collateral
Phala Network has demonstrated the ability to deliver security and confidentiality through a network of TEEs
Hang Yin, a co-founder of Phala Network, is also the Lead Developer (and a co-founder) of Bitcoin Gold, bringing deep knowledge of bitcoin-based blockchain tech to the joint project’s leadership
BTG and Phala look forward to collaborating and to helping bring this exciting new technology to BTG investors and hodlers as well as extending this open source technology to other coin projects.
