Why is Zulu Needed?

Why is the Zulu Network needed? People want to innovate and earn on Bitcoin, but the ecosystem has limitations.

Bitcoin is ready to evolve from a pure store of value to something bigger: BitFi (Bitcoin Native DeFi), EVM + BTC, and UTXO innovation.

While there are intriguing tech solutions being built on Bitcoin, the ecosystem currently faces three clear limitations:

  • Big demand, but poor infrastructure.

  • Fragmented and siloed ecosystems (example Bitcoin Layer 2s).

  • Technical limitations for mass adoption.

Zulu Solves Bitcoin Ecosystem Limitations

With a programmable, open, and extendable architecture, Zulu is poised to revolutionize the Bitcoin economy and start a new era of crypto innovation.

Zulu: ZK Bitcoin Protocol to Build & Earn

Smart contracts, scalability and innovation.

Zulu is building a genuine ecosystem within the Bitcoin industry, allowing existing Bitcoin assets to engage with sophisticated DeFi applications and Financial Services, while preserving the original security, reliability, and capabilities of the Bitcoin Network.

The Zulu Network provides developers with a space for ongoing and sustained innovation. Zulu does not favor any specific technical direction, but rather is committed to integrating the strengths of various approaches to foster true prosperity within the Bitcoin industry.

EVM + UTXO Layers will Spark a Revolution

Zulu is Empowering the Bitcoin Network with smart contracts, dApps, and limitless innovation.

The following is a summary of the technical characteristics of ZuluPrime and ZuluNexus, highlighting the potential of Zulu, which will be elaborated on in subsequent chapters:

EVM Liquidity Layer FeaturesUTXO Innovation Layer Features

EVM Compatibility: Implementing an EVM-compatible Layer 2 based on zkSync's ZK stack.

Hybrid Type: Support UTXO and Account asset types.

ZK-Based: Generating a stark proof for each block.

Programmable: Support smart contracts.

Verify on L2: Establishing a verifying network in the Layer 2 to quickly validate proofs before submitting it for verification on Bitcoin, prioritizing security and cost efficiency.

ZK-Based: Generating a stark proof for each block.

Verify on Bitcoin: Employ BitVM technology to verify Layer 2 proofs on the Bitcoin network.

Verify on ZuluPrime.

Store on DA Service: Place transaction data on a Data Availability (DA) service, such as Celestia, Eigenlayer, and other DA services.

Store on DA Service: Place transaction data on a Data Availability (DA) service, such as Celestia, Eigenlayer, and other DA services.

Trust-Minimized Bridge: Ensure secure asset cross-chain transactions between ZuluPrime and Bitcoin, implementing BitVM and 2-way peg technology.

Decentralized Bridge: Ensure secure asset cross-chain transactions between ZuluPrime and ZuluNexus.

The Future is Zulu!
