Bitcoin ain't gotta dance, dWallets make money move: dWallets and the New Era of Programmable Bitcoin

The introduction of dWallets heralds a new era of Bitcoin programmability, staying true to Web3's core values of decentralization and user ownership by offering a noncollusive, massively decentralized solution that enables native Bitcoin DeFi and staking without compromising on Bitcoin's foundational principles.

Bitcoin ain't gotta dance, dWallets make money move: dWallets and the New Era of Programmable Bitcoin

In the burgeoning world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, a revolutionary development is on the horizon, promising to redefine Bitcoin's role in the digital age. The introduction of the dWallet Network marks a pivotal moment, heralding a new era of Bitcoin programmability. This advancement is not just a leap forward; it's a return to the core principles that have guided the Web3 movement from its inception, principles that Bitcoin itself introduced to the world, and that have been sacrificed by  cross-chain solutions such as bridges or federated MPC.

Ownership and Decentralization - Bitcoin's Core Values

At the heart of Bitcoin's creation was a vision to establish a financial system free from the control of any central authority. This vision was built on two foundational pillars: user ownership and decentralization. Bitcoin's design, as outlined in Satoshi Nakamoto's groundbreaking whitepaper, leveraged public key cryptography to solve the issue of user ownership, while its decentralized consensus mechanism ensured that tracking of the ledger - preventing double spending - remained distributed, not centralized.

Fast forward to today, and the blockchain landscape is teeming with innovation. Ethereum's emergence allowed for the deployment of decentralized applications, embodying these core Web3 values on a new scale. However, as the ecosystem expanded, the introduction of "Bitcoin L2s" and other programmability solutions revealed a concerning trend. These solutions rely on mechanisms such as wrapping, centralized bridges, and collusive federated MPC, deviating from the ideals of user ownership and decentralization.

On Bitcoin, any number of miners colluding won't be able to generate a valid signed transaction on behalf of the user, ensuring that native BTC on Bitcoin is always secure against collusion. Collusive solutions such as bridges, where network participants can collude and steal users' assets, represent a compromise, sacrificing the very principles that make Web3 distinct and valuable. That means that no wrapped version of BTC existing today can provide the noncollusive security guarantee provided by the native security of the Bitcoin network.

The dWallet Innovation

Enter dWallets, the only solution that remains noncollusive and massively decentralized, staying true to the ethos of Web3 as introduced by Bitcoin. The dWallet Network, is at the forefront of this innovation. dWallets represent a radical commitment to the foundational values of Web3. They offer a way to enhance Bitcoin's usability and accessibility without forsaking user ownership or decentralization.

dWallets are powered by the novel 2PC-MPC protocol, ensuring that a Bitcoin signature can only be generated by a user and two thirds of a massively decentralized network. A dWallet can also be controlled from a smart contract on any other chain, thanks to the composable modularity of the dWallet Network.

dWallets and Bitcoin

The significance of dWallets for Bitcoin cannot be overstated. For a store of value to function on a global scale, as Bitcoin aspires to, it must be both widely adopted and inherently useful. dWallets address both these needs. They promise to make Bitcoin accessible to billions, paving the way for mass adoption without compromising on the digital currency's core values.

Moreover, dWallets effectively makes BTC programmable, by allowing smart contracts to control Bitcoin signatures in a noncollusive and massively decentralized way. This unlocks the potential for Bitcoin's value to be leveraged in decentralized finance (DeFi) and staking, areas previously out of reach for BTC holders unwilling to sacrifice ownership and decentralization. With dWallets, native BTC can be traded with any other asset, used as collateral for a loan, staked for protocol security and used anywhere on Web3 - without bridges or wrapping, without ever leaving the Bitcoin network, and without the user giving up their ownership. Let's take a look at a few examples.

Native BTC Trading

Traditional trading on decentralized platforms often relies on liquidity pools and wrapped assets, which can introduce additional layers of complexity and risk. dWallets revolutionize this process by enabling direct native asset trading through smart contracts. These contracts oversee the logic of asset transfers, allowing for seamless exchanges between different cryptocurrencies, such as BTC on Bitcoin and ETH on Ethereum. The magic lies in the dWallets' ability to execute these trades directly, bypassing the need for intermediary forms of the assets. This means users can trade BTC for ETH directly, with one dWallet managing the BTC transfer on the Bitcoin network and another handling the ETH transfer on Ethereum, streamlining the process while adhering to the principles of decentralization and user ownership.

Native BTC Lending

In the current ecosystem, lending and borrowing often require the use of wrapped tokens or assets bridged to other chains, complicating the process and introducing potential security vulnerabilities. dWallets bring a novel solution to this challenge by enabling native BTC to be used as collateral for loans without leaving the Bitcoin network. A smart contract controls the lending logic, ensuring that the BTC collateralized in a dWallet remains locked and unspendable by the borrower for the duration of the loan, and ensuring the BTC collateral could be liquidated if necessary. This setup not only maintains the integrity and ownership of the native BTC but also allows for the loan's issuance and settlement in any asset across any chain, providing unprecedented flexibility and security in decentralized finance.

Native BTC Staking

Staking, a cornerstone of network security and consensus in many blockchain ecosystems, traditionally involves locking up assets as a form of collateral to support network operations. dWallets introduce a method for staking BTC directly, where validators deposit BTC into a dWallet they control (own the user share of). Smart contracts oversee the staking and slashing mechanics, ensuring that rewards can be distributed in any asset across any blockchain, and in the event of a slashing condition, the network share of the dWallet prevents the withdrawal of the penalized BTC portion. This approach not only enhances the security and utility of BTC within the staking ecosystem but also preserves user autonomy and asset security, showcasing dWallets' capability to expand Bitcoin's role beyond a mere store of value.


In essence, dWallets represent a return to Bitcoin's original mission, equipped with the tools necessary for the first and most important cryptocurrency to fulfill its potential as a truly global store of value. This development is not merely an incremental update; it is a radical shift that aligns with the fundamental principles of decentralization and user ownership. As the dWallet Network propels forward, it is set to usher in a new era for Bitcoin, one where its programmability and utility are matched only by its adherence to the ideals that have made Web3 a beacon of innovation and freedom in the digital age.
