A federated layer-2 solution built on top of Bitcoin, designed to function as Bitcoin's financial layer. One of its key features is the ability to issue digital securities and other assets, such as stablecoins or utility tokens. By digitizing (tokenizing) these assets on Liquid, users can benefit from 24/7 trading, greater liquidity, fractional ownership, reduced costs, and increased confidentiality.
If Bitcoin is the internet's value layer and Lightning is the global peer-to-peer payment network of this new global financial system anchored to Bitcoin, then Liquid is the corresponding financial layer, onboarding modern financial instruments like securities and commodities.
