Bitcoin L2 solution Stacks initiated its Nakamoto upgrade aiming at faster block processing

Stacks upgrade is focusing on the security of the network, the speed of transactions and the movement of coins between Bitcoin and L2s.

Muneeb Ali, the co-founder of Stacks noted that the upgrade will enable Bitcoin L2s to support DeFi applications currently on the works. The infrastructure improvements will also benefit Ordinals and BRC-20 tokens which are seeing a spike of interest in recent months.

The Nakamoto upgrade rollout will continue over the next month, improving block times from the current 10-30 minutes to around five seconds.
