What is ALEX?

ALEX is an open-source DeFi protocol built on Bitcoin via Stacks, modelled on, yet extending, the world’s existing financial markets.

Upon launch, at ALEX you can:
  • Lend your BTC and earn fixed or variable interest
  • Borrow BTC without risk of liquidation
  • Mitigate risk with BTC short positions
  • Maximize upside with BTC leveraged long positions
Our initial focus (v1) is to:
  • Build DeFi primitives targeting developers looking to build ecosystem on Stacks, and
  • Simplify the user experience going from(to) CeFi to(from) DeFi to attract non-developers, broadening the Stacks user base.
