What is Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC)

Wrapped Bitcoin is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain that is backed 1:1 with Bitcoin. Bitcoin is held in custody by the centralized group of custodians, organized by BitGo. Bitcoin can be converted to Wrapped Bitcoin and vice versa. All WBTC issued are fully backed and verified through on-chain proof of reserves. WBTC is the most popular and capitalized BTC wrapping system in crypto.

What is the best crypto exchange?

It depends entirely on your personal needs. Some people still rely on centralized exchanges. If you do, you should choose the most reliable and convenient one. There, you need to be sure that you will not lose your funds or face any obstacles such as KYC, limits, withdrawal stuck, etc.

On the other hand, if you are going to exchange on-chain, you should be aware of the different types of DEXs, routes, wrapped tokens, slippage and other things. For example, if you want to exchange WBTC on-chain it is usually quite difficult to achieve the same simplicity as on centralized exchanges. This is where we can recommend that you try Atomex DEX, which is definitely one of the most convenient and efficient ways to exchange cross-chain.
