BitGo integrates Stacks, should you invest?

Stacks STX/USD is an open-source network of decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contracts that are built on Bitcoin.

The STX token is the native cryptocurrency token that powers the Stacks network, and it is used as fuel for blockchain transactions while also enabling users to earn Bitcoin through Stacking.

The BitGo integration as a catalyst for growth

Back on October 18, we saw Stack’s trading volume increase by 410% and its value grow by 20%.

On October 25, we saw an announcement from the Stacks official Twitter handle that BitGo has integrated STX.

They indicated that starting Monday, BitGo will offer institutional token holders the ability to earn Bitcoin through the usage of the STX token. This will be conducted to the process of Stacking.

The BTC rewards generated through Stacking are not based on a lending auction, and STX token holders do not need to lend their funds.

Stacks claims the yield is derived directly from the staking mechanism that is connected to the Bitcoin blockchain.

STX token holders will have access to BitGo’s insurance and even the asset protection and portfolio management services. 

That said, this has the potential to boost the value of the STX token due to its increased utility and circulation as a result of this integration.
