### **Deep Web3 on Bitcoin**
"Deep Web 3 on Bitcoin" refers to using the advanced technology of the Bitcoin blockchain, like smart contracts, to construct decentralized applications and services. The idea behind this concept is to revolutionize the web by making it decentralized and trustless through the security and immutability features of the Bitcoin blockchain. This can open up new opportunities such as anonymous marketplaces, privacy-protecting social networks, decentralized finance (DeFi) applications, and many more.
### **Core Features of BitMask**
- **Non-custodial-Bitcoin Wallet with Taproot Support**
BitMask is a special kind of Bitcoin wallet that helps you keep your digital money safe. It's like a piggy bank for your computer. It makes sure that only you can access your money and no one else can take it away from you. It's similar to a safe deposit box where you have the key, and only you can open it up and access your money. This way you are in control of your own money and don't have to trust anyone else to keep it safe for you.
BitMask can make your Bitcoin transactions cheaper and more private with the help of an upgrade called Taproot. This upgrade allows BitMask to lower the fees for certain types of transactions by more than half. It also makes Bitcoin more programmable, and is used in RGB assets.
- **Lightning Wallet**
With more than 40 million transactions per second, the Lightning Network is considered the future of Bitcoin payments because it addresses some of the limitations of the Bitcoin blockchain, such as high transaction fees and slow confirmation times.
BitMask is a top-of-the-line Bitcoin Lightning wallet that offers security, ease of use and support for the latest features of the Lightning Network. It is designed with robust security measures to protect your funds and private keys.
Your BitMask Lightning wallet can be recovered automatically using your mnemonic seed phrase, so you won’t lose access to your funds if you lose your device.
- **Bitcoin Smart Contracts and Multi-asset support**
Multi-asset support is the capability of a wallet or platform to store and manage various digital assets, not just Bitcoin, but also other assets that are built on the Bitcoin Blockchain, such as assets that use the RGB and TARO protocols. This allows users to easily access and manage a variety of digital assets within one platform, making it more convenient and efficient to use digital assets in different use cases.

### **Tech used in BitMask**
BitMask Core is open-source and entirely built using the Rust programing language.
Rust is considered the best programming language for the future for several reasons:
1. **Security**: Rust has built-in safety features that make it difficult to write code with security vulnerabilities. This makes it ideal for building systems that handle sensitive data, such as cryptocurrency wallets and blockchain-based systems.
2. **Performance**: Rust is a compiled language that produces low-level machine code, which makes it faster and more efficient than other languages.
3. **Concurrency**: Rust has built-in support for concurrent programming, which makes it easier to write code that can take advantage of multi-core processors and other forms of parallelism.
4. **Memory safety**: Rust has a unique memory management model that makes it difficult to write code with memory errors such as buffer overflows and null pointer dereferences.
5. **Community**: Rust has a strong, vibrant and growing community of developers and contributors that are constantly working on improving the language, libraries and tools.
6. **Industry Adoption**: Rust has been adopted by many companies and organizations for various use cases, such as browser engines, operating systems and blockchain protocols and wallets.
Overall, Rust is a modern, powerful and safe language that is well-suited for the challenges of the future; it's a language that is built to last.
