Equipping Bitcoin for a Flourishing Future
“Bullish on Bitcoin for a decade,” Taproot Wizards is best known for its distinctive NFT collection that features wizard characters, which reflects Bitcoin’s early days as “magic internet money”.
The project is at the forefront of promoting innovation for the Bitcoin protocol, enabling the funding round to bring together a top-tier team of Bitcoin developers to advance Bitcoin and Ordinals.
A primary focus of this initiative is to enhance technologies like Layer-2 rollups and zero-knowledge proofs alongside the 2021 Taproot upgrade to improve BTC’s security, privacy, and efficiency. Still, the project has already contributed open-source rollup code to support scaling efforts.
Furthermore, Taproot Wizards is working toward creating a comfortable, collaborative environment for Bitcoin developers, spurring them to test out new avenues on the blockchain network to enhance the coin’s versatility. In the meantime, Taproot Wizards will continue developing new Bitcoin applications — private payments, NFTs, decentralized identities, and smart contracts — with the aim of propelling Bitcoin’s evolution beyond being a digital asset.
With a skilled technical team and significant financial support, Taproot Wizards’ Bitcoin funding round is primed to advance the cryptocurrency, potentially introducing an exciting new chapter of utility.
