Reasonable compromise on decentralization to operate a fully backed bitcoin token on Ethereum. Fully legit cooperation between several crypto projects. Currently custody is performed only by 1 entity; ideally this should also be increased to multiple parties in order to obtain an optimal for decentralization. This project should be reasonably reliable to transact with if for whatever reason you need

WBTC is a great idea since it enables effectively using Bitcoin in and around the Ethereum ecosystem. That means Dapps, DEXs, exchanges, and wallets can all stick with Ethereum nodes but also draw from the liquidity and demand of Bitcoin. A fully verifiable and transparent process governs the minting, burning, and transfer of these WBTC ERC20 tokens for BTC.
