Stacks Pakistan
Building a user-owned internet on Bitcoin. Stacks Pakistan is a community-led chapter of the Stacks Ecosystem, sign-up to stay up to date with our efforts.
Own your share of the future internet
Stacks enables a user owned internet. We believe in a future where the ownership rights you enjoy in the physical world extend to the digital world—an internet where everyone can participate in value creation.

The Stacks 2.0 blockchain is our master design (launching late 2020), and the foundation of a new digital ecosystem that allows all of us to participate as owners.
XPLORE 1.0 is the first edition of Stacks Pakistan's annual conference to celebrate and discuss development in Blockchain technology in Pakistan.
Stack Pakistan brings to you its first Blockchain Conference, XPLORE. With topics ranging from Clarity to Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the conference aims to spread awareness and give more detailed insight into the current Blockchain technology that is taking the world by storm.

Stacks #Hack4Impact 2.0
IEEE LUMS Stacks #Hack4Impact hackathon in collaboration with Stacks Pakistan is a three days event based around blockchain, with a winner cash prize of 500USD. The event will include lectures and sessions on blockchain fundamentals by experts in the field, followed by a hackathon to implement the concepts.
Event Dates: 6th Aug - 8th Aug 2021
In collaboration with IEEE LUMS, Stacks Pakistan is back with one of its most anticipated event, the #Hack4Impact. Taking place from the 6th of August to the 8th of August 2021, the 3 day event centers around blockchain, with lectures and sessions on blockchain fundamentals by experts in the field. To implement the blockchain concepts learnt, #Hack4Impact will wrap up with a hackathon, with the winner taking home the exciting cash prize of $700!

Any student currently enrolled in any university of Pakistan, with prior knowledge in Python/C++/JavaScript is eligible for the competition. Taking part in #Hack4Impact will give the students an exclusive chance to join Pakistan’s Second Clarity Cohort where they can learn to develop and deploy smart contracts. Due to the limited supply of Clarity Developers, this will give the students a cutting edge to be hired by companies at competitive packages.

With an increasing demand in the industry, #Hack4Impact aims to provide an amazing opportunity to students to aid them on their journey to becoming Clarity Developers.

Stacks Present
Stacks Summer School
Stacks Pakistan conducted its first #StacksSummerSchool in July 2021. In a 3-week boot camp starting from July 26th, developers and tech fanatics were taught the basic skills of Clarity language to get them started on building Smart Contracts. There were 100+ applications out of which students were shortlisted for the Summer School. Right now, there are 60+ developers who are taking Clarity lectures free of cost.
What is Stacks 2.0?
Stacks 2.0 blockchain is a layer-1 blockchain that uses the Bitcoin blockchain as a secure base-layer. It brings apps and smart contracts to Bitcoin unlocking innovation, new value, and a new way to earn BTC.
Meet the Stacks Ecosystem
First things first, the Stacks ecosystem is a collection of independent entities, developers, and community members united by the mission of building a user-owned internet on Bitcoin.
Meet the Ecosystem
Smarter Smart contracts
Clarity
Clarity is a new language that brings smart contracts to Bitcoin. It is a decidable language, meaning you can know, with certainty, from the code itself what the program will do. Clarity eliminates entire classes of bugs, protects end users, and gives developers a safe way to build complex smart contracts.
Earn BTC
Stacking
By 'Stacking', or locking* STX to the network and sending periodic transactions, STX holders actively support consensus, further securing the network and earning regular bitcoin (BTC) rewards. Stacking is a new, more secure way to earn bitcoin without the need to build costly mining setups, leverage 3rd-party DeFi products built on potentially insecure Solidity contracts, or get involved in centralized lending schemes.

With the Stacks 2.0 launch, over 300,000 STX holders will be able to earn BTC in by holding STX.

Novel consensus
Proof-of-Transfer
Proof-of-Transfer is a novel approach to consensus that leverages Bitcoin's security to secure the Stacks blockchain. PoX unlocks, extends, and makes bitcoin more valuable by providing new tools to developers who wish build on it.
