Why Syscoin is the ideal layer 1

Let’s dive into why Syscoin is the most ideal layer 1 settlement system in the world. I will pin this tweet storm for educational purposes:

Syscoin is the only dual chain UTXO / EVM architecture where all of the following characteristics are working in perfect harmony to comprise the layer 1 protocol. Lets start with UTXO chain:

  1. UTXO chain with UTXO assets integrated following bitcoin policy rigorously with daily updates

On our EVM chain (NEVM):

  1. Because EVM chains are inherently focused on utility and not SoV we want long term subsidy with a burning model (EIP1559). This is why you cannot do DeFi on Bitcoin itself. We model our inflation based on population growth of ~1% and dropping over time.

All of these reasons contribute to a cohesive and intricate design that leverages both BTC and EVM gold standards with some interesting token economic features to create the glue necessary for an ideal layer 1.
