BTCST is a BSC-based smart contract with no private equity, zero venture capital, and zero team token reserves. BTCST completely relies on community autonomy and has passed the scrutiny of CertiK and Armor Labs, two of the world’s leading blockchain security firms.

BTCST has partnered with five institutional miners that together represent 12% of the entire Bitcoin hashrate: BTC.TOP, Easy2Mine, Genesis Mining, Atlas Mining, and Hengjia Group. BTCST is supported by Trust Wallet, MathWallet, TokenPocket, SafePal, and other wallets. At present, BTCST is listed on Binance and PancakeSwap.
