What is SatoshiChain?

SatoshiChain is a proof-of-stake blockchain that aims to complement the original Bitcoin cryptocurrency by bringing scalability, security, robustness and utility to Bitcoin. It utilizes the Satoshi currency ($SAT) and allows for the use of Decentralized Finance applications such as NFTs, games, and decentralized applications (dApps) for the Bitcoin community. The bridge also allows for easy conversion between BTC and SAT.



SatoshiChain is an EVM-compatible blockchain that aims to complement the original Bitcoin cryptocurrency. As a proof-of-stake blockchain, SatoshiChain seeks to bring scalability, security, robustness, and utility to Bitcoin. In short, the SatoshiChain doesn’t compete with Bitcoin. Instead, it aims to harmonize with the original crypto and enhance it with smart contract capability.

SatoshiChain enhances $Bitcoin to bring Decentralized Finance applications like NFTs, games, and decentralized applications (dApps) to the $Bitcoin community. Unfortunately, $Bitcoin cannot support any of these applications (or any other dApps) as is.

SatoshiChain fixes this.

SatoshiChain utilizes the Satoshi currency ($SAT). A single bitcoin ($BTC) is divisible, just like dollars, and the smallest unit is called a Satoshi. When you bridge your $BTC to SatoshiChain, you receive $SAT in your wallet. There are 100 million Satoshis ($SAT) in one bitcoin, meaning each Satoshi is worth 0.00000001 BTC.

The bridge works both ways, so when you withdraw your $SAT out of SatoshiChain, you receive $BTC in your Bitcoin wallet according to the same conversion rate.

SatoshiChain Phases

Alpha Devnet

A development network that will experience frequent updates and be used to battle-test experimental features.

Omega Testnet

A fully explorable more stable network for developers to build and test dApps with prior to Mainnet launch.

Satoshi Mainnet

The real decentralized public network that processes real data and value, with live bridges, tokens, and protocols.

Why Choose Us

An IBFT PoS with built-in systems contracts will be used as a core consensus algorithm by SatoshiChain.

Any account staking more than 10,000,000 $SC tokens and passing the community authority and authentication, will be allowed to join the Validator Set.

The average block time is expected to be 2 seconds.

SatoshiChain has pre-deployed contracts for staking. This allows for the staking of $SC tokens, providing rewards to holders.

Initially, 21 nodes will be running to comply with BFT (Byzantine Fault Tolerance).

If the block is not produced or accepted within the expected time, the next validator would take over the proposer duty.

Block size will be dynamic and decided by the Validator set. The initial block gas limit is 30,000,000.

There is no newly minted block reward for block production.

The expected number of validator nodes in the chain will be 21 at a minimum.

All transaction fees will be valued in $SAT.


The management of the validator along with their selection, reward distribution, and staking are all performed by the smart contracts of the protocol. These contracts are deployed in the genesis block. On the SatoshiChain, there are six different types of smart contracts.



manages validator proposals and votes.



ranks validators and decides which are to be elected or removed.



receives all the withdrawal fees from the chain bridge.



manages staking operations and the distribution of block rewards.



manages disciplinary actions against validators who do not follow the predetermined rules of the chain.



manages token exchange between the Bitcoin blockchain and the SatoshiChain.


What is SatoshiChain ($SC) Token?

$SC token is the governance token that gives holders the right and ability to vote and decide on decisions that affect the entire SatoshiChain ecosystem, as well as enables validators to contribute to the SatoshiChain ecosystem.
