Casey Rodarmor: The Quest to Make Bitcoin Fun Again
In a CoinDesk interview for Buidl Week, the creator of Ordinals Bitcoin NFT project breaks down his inspiration and how he views the backlash from some Bitcoiners against the protocol.
Bitcoin Trying Out Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT)
Bitcoin is attempting to use non-fungible tokens (NFT) again. First there were colored coins in 2012, which were aimed at representing all types of non-bitcoin assets on Bitcoin. Then came Counterparty in 2014, which was built as a derivative of Bitcoin and allowed for creating, buying and selling digital assets powered by its XCP token. Counterparty spawned „Rare Pepes“ – NFTs inspired by Pepe the Frog meme – back in 2016.
