Bitcoin is the largest decentralized blockchain. BTC is widely accepted and highly liquid, making up 50% of overall digital assets. Bitcoin’s network effect remains unrivaled.
Developers are returning to the Bitcoin ecosystem. The innovation in composability (ordinals, BRC-20 & other asset issuance standards) & scalability are bringing new and exciting building blocks for founders.
Bitcoin has much unexplored potential. Currently less than 1% of BTC held is used in dApps. Bringing utility and activating users on the Bitcoin network is one of the largest untapped opportunities in Web3.
Bitcoin is uniquely positioned in the blockchain trilemma. It lends itself to use cases requiring a high degree of integrity and security such as institutional Web3 solutions.
“At Outlier Ventures, we are committed to building on Bitcoin. With the necessary building blocks now in place, we can expand the ecosystem, drawing on insights from other networks. We believe there’s a vast, untapped opportunity to bring utility to the world’s largest blockchain network”

Bitcoin is shedding its skin. Since its creation in 2009, Bitcoin has long been a medium of exchange. This is changing. 2023 is bringing a wave of innovation on top of the Bitcoin network.
We believe this will allow developers to access an unprecedented amount of functionality, composability and scalability while leveraging the network’s security and decentralization.
