What is Merlin?

Merlin Chain isn’t your average Layer 2 solution. It leverages innovative technologies like decentralized oracles, on-chain BTC fraud proofs, and zero-knowledge (ZK) rollups to address Bitcoin’s scalability limitations. This leads to faster, more efficient transactions without compromising Bitcoin’s core security.

Merlin Chain leverages zero-knowledge proofs submitted to Bitcoin for verification of commitments, providing enhanced support to the Bitcoin network. It allows challengers to present fraud proofs on disputed matters, utilizing Bitcoin’s robust consensus mechanism to ensure the security of the Merlin Chain network. This ensures a secure, practical, comprehensive, and economically efficient network environment for users within the ecosystem.

Merlin Chain aims to expand the native innovation from Bitcoin Layer 1 to Layer 2. This includes supporting all kinds of Bitcoin Layer 1 assets, building dApps with ‘fully on chain’ spirit of Bitcoin, and community driven assets launching method. Merlin is trying to build a EVM compatible chain for Bitcoin, to unleash the potential of Bitcoin and Ordinals.

Key Features of Merlin Chain:

Merlin Chain offers Bitcoin’s cutting-edge Zero-Knowledge (ZK) scaling solution with the following advantages:

Security: Inherits the security of Bitcoin while providing additional advantages in L2 batch processing scalability.

EVM Compatibility: Supports the majority of existing smart contracts, developer tools, and wallets, ensuring seamless interoperability.

Low Cost: Utilizes ZK proofs combined with zkSNARK to reduce space consumption in L1, optimizing transaction costs for users.

High Performance: Achieves rapid network finality through frequent validity proofs and attains ultimate scalability through recursive STARK.
