As the FOMO sentiment of Bitcoin Layer 2 fades, projects that continue to invest sincerity in infrastructure and user-friendliness may become the ultimate winners.

According to data from the BitVM Chinese community , there are more than 50 documented Bitcoin Layer 2 projects on the market, some of which have been under construction since 2013, and some of which were launched this year, covering sub-categories such as sidechains and Rollups. In this fierce market competition, Bitlayer, a native Bitcoin Layer 2 network based on BitVm technology, is relying on its own technological innovation and continuous ecological construction to become the fastest growing Layer 2 project in the Bitcoin ecosystem.

As a Bitcoin second-layer solution based on BitVM, Bitlayer proposed layered virtual machine technology (Layered Virtual Machine), using zero-knowledge proof and optimistic verification mechanism to support various types of calculations. In addition, Bitlayer builds a dual-channel two-way locked asset bridge through OP-DLC and BitVM bridge, thereby achieving the same security as Bitcoins first layer.

Above technological innovation is ecology. A good ecology can promote project development and progress, and form a positive cycle, motivating more projects and resources to invest in ecological construction. On April 29 this year, Bitlayer launched a $50 million token airdrop incentive for developers, attracting developers to migrate to EVM and support Bitlayers native Dapp, while encouraging project parties to distribute the airdrops they received to active users on the chain to complete the cold start at the lowest cost.

At present, Bitlayers developer airdrop plan has achieved initial results. The following figure is a panoramic view of the ecology recently released by Bitlayer officials. From the figure, we can see that although the Bitlayer ecology is still in a relatively early stage, it shows a trend of vigorous development.

Official data shows that there are currently hundreds of projects being built on the Bitlayer network, covering infrastructure and developer tools, wallets, DeFi, NFT, games and metaverse, as well as RWA and many other sections. There are relatively mature infrastructure projects such as Ankr, Polyhedra Network, Meson, Apro, imToken, which pave the way for Bitlayer to attract users, as well as Bitlayer native applications such as Bitsmiley, Avalon Finance, bitCow, Lorenzo, Pell, Bitparty, Enzo and Marcaron, which demonstrate the development potential of the entire ecosystem.

The following is a brief introduction to the important projects in the current Bitlayer ecosystem. The data related to TVL was obtained on June 19. I hope it will be helpful to users who are interested in the Bitlayer ecosystem.

In general, Bitlayer is still in its early stages, and many ecological projects still need time to test and further release their potential.

However, with the continuous advancement and implementation of the official Bitlayer developer airdrop incentive plan, as well as the continued increase in the first mining festival series of incentive activities, it is expected that more and more Bitlayer native applications will soon appear, new assets will begin to circulate, and the resulting ecological prosperity will quickly increase Bitlayers valuation.
