The Biggest Opportunity in Bitcoin in 2023 is...

sBTC rang the building on Bitcoin bell and it'll be ringing all 2023

2023: it’s a good time to be building on Bitcoin. To be fair, it’s always a good time to be building on Bitcoin, but we digress.

The Stacks ecosystem closed out 2022 with one of the biggest quarters yet, officially voting in the Stacks 2.1 upgrade while two new whitepapers were published that outlined a vision for an even more complete Stacks Bitcoin layer.

In Q4, we also watched Clarity smart contracts grow over 100%, the network crossed 7 billion in total STX transferred, and we welcomed 84 new members to the talent pool, a growth of 44% from the previous quarter.

As always, read on for stories and announcements from builders and companies, plenty of news and resources around sBTC and Stacks 2.1, videos from community leaders, event recaps, and more.

Buckle up - here’s to a major year of building on Stacks!
