What is Venus BTC?
The Venus protocol is a DeFi project that is built on the Binance Smart Chain. It is a lending and borrowing platform where users can earn interest on their tokens. Venus also allows users to mint the protocol’s native token (VAI), a stablecoin pegged 1:1 to the US dollar. The protocol aims to become the Aave of Binance, creating a unique DeFi marketplace. Using the Binance Smart Chain allows Venus to charge low fees and make high speed transactions. The Venus protocol creates pegged assets when collateral is supplied, called vTokens. vBTC is one such token, representing the unit of the collateral supplied and can be used as a redemption tool. Essentially, vTokens are receipts for the assets you supplied. Unlike your standard 1:1 peg, vBTC is pegged at 1:49, with the current price at around US$700.

What to consider when buying Venus BTC
Venus Protocol has quickly become one of the premier lending platforms on the Binance Smart Chain. It has made quite a name for itself, with increasing Total Value Locked and an exciting number of features. vBTC serves the purpose of wrapped Bitcoin but for BSC and the Venus Protocol. It allows you to interact with a number of different options, such as borrowing, lending and minting stablecoins. We look encouragingly at the platform's future.
- Arbitrary peg. Instead of your standard 1:1 peg, Bitcoin is pegged at 1:49 vBTC, making it slightly confusing when staking your coins.
- Only available on Venus. This is a native token to the Venus Protocol, which means you cannot buy, sell or trade it on any other exchanges.
- Intermediate level of expertise. The Venus Protocol and vBTC are native to Binance Smart Chain, which is the exchange’s DeFi platform. It requires a slightly higher level of experience from users interested in using the network.
