Bitcoin layer 2 refers to all systems and protocols built on top of the Bitcoin network to improve its functionality, such as the Lightning Network and Stacks Protocol. The latter has attracted a lot of attention in recent weeks.

Stacks is a Bitcoin L2 for smart contracts. It has a separate ledger to store data outside Bitcoin L1, and developers can build any app on it. Whatever you can build on Ethereum, Solana, you can build on Stacks L2s.

The ecosystem of Stacks now includes:

Stackswap: The First Complete DEX on the Bitcoin Network

ALEX: another DEX with Launchpad and orderbook exchange

Zest Protocol: A lending protocol, enables Bitcoin liquidity providers to earn Bitcoin yield

Arkadiko Finance: a MakerDAO style stablecoin protocol on Stacks

Gamma: the biggest NFT marketplace on Stacks, you can now even see Ordinals at it
