1.Bitcoin Smart Contract Platform RSK Is Now Interoperable with Ethereum

The Bitcoin-based platform RSK, which is a second layer solution that encourages smart contracts and tokens on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain, has announced  the creation of Token Bridge,  which facilitates interoperability with Ethereum (ETH). The announcement for the creation of Token Bridge is published via RSK official  site. The announcement is also published via blog post


Ethereum/RSK Bridge permits to move ERC20 tokens between one chain and the other. This way the client or the contract creator can decided to cross tokens to another network.


Users will presently have the option to cross RSK assets and Ethereum (ETH) based assets. This will make it simpler RSK for projects to work on both the Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, with dApps being able to access a broader base of users.


RSK Is Now Interoperable with Ethereum


The bridge works through locking the original tokens in a smart contract when a user moves tokens, and then an equivalent amount of tokens is minted on the destination blockchain. Using the system, ether-based tokens can be transformed into RSK’s ERC20 tokens, which on the other hand can be transformed  into ethereum ERC777 tokens.


As of now  RSK has a two way bridge with BTC permitting bitcoiners to cross their BTC and use them in RSK to interact with smart contracts. The token bridge allows to cross tokens from Ethereum to RSK.  bitcoiners could move their BTC to RSK and buy the crossed tokens from Ethereum.


This interoperability bridge between Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) can possibly to expand the capacities  of dApps, and to make the Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) economies more connected.


Another advantage of the token bridge is the possibility to have the similar token on few networks. Layer 2 solutions  like SWARM or Oraclize and numerous others could get a similar token as payment in many networks.


Next step to decentralisation-

The token bridge in its first version is united, but this isn’t its final form.  The bridge contract was worked as an upgradable contract using open zeppelin sdk.  RSK is anticipating on changing the token bridge to be trustless and completely decentralised.
