Lorenzo is the liquidity finance layer of Bitcoin. Lorenzo matches users who stake BTCs to Babylon, and turns Babylon’s staked BTCs into BTC liquid restaking tokens, releasing liquidity to the downstream DeFi ecosystem. That is, Lorenzo is a platform for the issuance, trading, and settlement of BTC liquid restaking tokens. It consists of a Cosmos appchain built with the Cosmos Ethermint, a relayer system that synchronizes BTC L1 and the Lorenzo appchain, and a system responsible for issuing and settling BTC liquid restaking tokens.

Lorenzo’s top priority is to assist projects that require Bitcoin restaking to obtain Bitcoin. Conversely, through Lorenzo, Bitcoin holders are able to find decent yielding opportunities by getting matched with projects that desire Bitcoin liquidity. Lorenzo also aims to tokenize BTC restaking and unlock the liquidity that is locked due to restaking. With Lorenzo, we together build a decentralized financial world based on BTC liquid restaking tokens. Lorenzo’s mainnet will be launched in two phases, which are described in details below.
