Why Are We Cooperating Together?
DeCus is a high capital efficiency cross-chain custody system dedicated to bringing Bitcoin to the DeFi ecosystem. We have taken the first step and have stably run on the BSC (Binance Smart Chain) mainnet for some time. Our next ambition is to introduce Bitcoin to more blockchain networks. At the same time, Astar/Shiden network aims to be a multi-chain smart contract platform that will support multiple blockchains and virtual machines. We believe our strategic and cooperative partnership can leverage our respective strengths and achieve a win-win situation.

DeCus is a decentralized bridge that can build cross-chain assets in a secure and more efficient way. As a first step, DeCus launched SATS, a BEP20 token pegged to 1 Satoshi, to bring the liquidity of Bitcoin to multiple DeFi protocols and make Bitcoin easier to access and use. DeCus will continue introducing more assets, like DOGE, LTC, etc., to more blockchain networks, like Solana, Conflux, and Polygon.
