Introduction to Lombard

Unlocking Bitcoin’s Potential

Lombard is dedicated to unlocking Bitcoin's potential as a dynamic financial tool by connecting it to DeFi. Lombard is building the universal standard for Bitcoin. Secured by Bitcoin-aligned ecosystem players, Lombard enables the yield-bearing BTC to move cross-chain without fragmenting liquidity, paving the way to become the single largest catalyst for onboarding net new capital into DeFi.

Our flagship product, LBTC—a yield-bearing, cross-chain, liquid Bitcoin backed 1:1 by BTC—changes this and brings DeFi interoperability to digital gold. For the first time, Bitcoin can be held as a store of value and simultaneously used to earn, stake, trade, and engage with DeFi at scale.

Lombard joins the ecosystem in alliance with industry leaders that form the Lombard Consortium.

Lombard is currently in Phase 1 and live on the Ethereum mainnet in Private Beta mode, where eligible participants are staking native BTC and minting LBTC.

Phase 2 will commence in a matter of weeks and will make LBTC available to the public while maintaining deposit caps. We have implemented an LBTC Waitlist to manage demand for LBTC and provide us with a mechanism to reward early participants with exclusive access and benefits over time.
