Relationship of BlockStack to Bitcoin


#1

I’ve been reading your docs and poking around, but it is not very clear how BlockStack uses Bitcoin. Could someone point me to any documentation or explanations of how Blockstack acts as a layer 2 chain?

Here’s our paper on our layer 2 chain: https://blockstack.org/virtualchain_dccl16.pdf
Slides from the conference talk: https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack/blob/master/talks/2016_6_dccl_virtualchain.pdf

Thanks for the quick reply. It feels like your docs are either very high level (features, vision) or very low level (deep CS, proofs). Would love to see something in between, if that makes sense…
