It seems everytime I attempt to write here– the other side of the terminal requires me. I’ll be back. It is a busy time my friends. And hey.. I can dig it.
Deep work.. this human thing. There’s a steep but rewarding learning curve. I am living deeply in depth. « I wrote this back in January.
By the way, here’s a decent guide on Bitcoin NFTs and its market potential »> new NFT protocol built on top of bitcoin called ordinals. As of April 6, 2023, the BRC-721 or Ordinals Collection Protocol is in development to allow Bitcoin NFTS to be used similarly to Ethereum-based NFTS. However, a recent discovery reveals a security flaw that enabled the development of Ordinals protocol inscriptions. As of December 9, the United States National Vulnerability Database (NVD) flagged Bitcoin inscriptions as a cybersecurity risk. Considering Bitcoin Core wasn’t originally designed to store data inscriptions, it exploits a vulnerability in the network. Currently, there is high congestion due to the number of ordinal transactions. Although this was addressed in v25, the Bitcoin Core remains vulnerable in its upcoming releases. The likely solution? Fork bitcoin to reduce transaction spam.
Actually, my attempt at writing here (and talking much for that matter these days) is curtailed by a practice of silence and the need to focus on work. I am innately this way, but overtime have come to better understand why. There is usually much more to consider than what meets the eye.
