What is pBTC?
pBTC is a wrapped Bitcoin launched by pNetwork. Unlike wBTC and HBTC, where the BTC backing the tokens are custodied under a centralized entity, the BTC backing pBTC is custodied under a smart contract, making it a more decentralized option.
What is pNetwork?

pTokens are formulated to do the pegging task at a 1:1 ratio. It is automated and powered through smart contracts. Users can send BTC over to the smart contract and receive pBTC in return.

The validators verify the number of underlying assets locked and trigger the minting of pTokens.
All pTokens are fully-backed by the underlying assets and can be redeemed at any time.
pTokens holders can burn the pBTC to redeem the underlying BTC through smart contracts. Following the same process above, through TEE, validators will verify the pBTC received and release the BTC to the user.
