Bitcoin is at the heart of everything we do. From enterprise-grade settlement networks, to consumer wallets, to Bitcoin satellites, our technology is accelerating the adoption of bitcoin-based peer-to-peer finance. Blockstream's key innovation is in sidechains, which enable the introduction of brand new features to Bitcoin, as well as the issuance of new digital assets.
