What is Stacks' STX?

Stacks is a layer-1 blockchain solution that is designed to bring smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps) to Bitcoin (BTC). These smart contracts are brought to Bitcoin without changing any of the features that make it so powerful — including its security and stability. Stacks looks to take what makes Bitcoin so powerful and extends it with additional functionality without fork or change the original Bitcoin blockchain. InfStones is honored to collaborate with Stacks and bringing fuels into Stacks’ ecosystem.
