In this episode of TBR 1 hr Podcasts, hosts Iman and Will are joined by guest Adev as they delve into the fascinating world of BRC 20 tokens and the emergence of new projects in the blockchain space. They explore the significance of the ORC 20 token standard and the release of the ORC 20 indexer, which has gained significant traction. The speakers emphasize the importance of multiple indexers for increased efficiency and risk management. They draw parallels to the evolution of Bitcoin and the necessity for the space to become more advanced before decentralization can occur. They also introduce the concept of creating projects based on patterns found on Bitcoin's blockchain and the need for data indexers to track such patterns. Throughout the conversation, the speakers advocate for an open and decentralized future for indexers and highlight the trajectory of their own company in data democratization and blockchain technology. The discussion serves as a thought-provoking exploration of the evolving landscape of indexers, token standards, and the potential of data democratization through blockchain technology.
In this episode of the TBR Podcast, hosts Iman and Will delve into the topic of indexing which has become a consistent concern within the Ordinals space due to matters of centralization. A coalition of major ecosystem actors have banded together to form the first attempt at creating a decentralized indexing process. Also, they explore the concept of the metaverse, its potential to revolutionize digital existence, and the importance of infrastructure in its development. The hosts shed light on the challenges faced in creating a metaverse and the role of open-source tools and standards. They also discuss the historical pattern of analog to digital transformations and how it can be applied to the virtual space. Join Iman and Will as they navigate through these thought-provoking topics and provide insights on where the most entertainment and value may be found in the metaverse.
In this episode of The Block Runner Podcast, join hosts Iman and Will as they delve into the fascinating world of Digital Matter Theory (DMT) and its application in the metaverse. They explore the concept of bitmap assets, non-fungible digital artifacts derived from bitcoin's block data, and their potential to create unique districts and parcels within the metaverse. The hosts discuss the need for a framework to determine ownership of patterns within the bitmap ecosystem and how recursive inscriptions can play a crucial role in recognizing and utilizing these patterns. Join them as they navigate through the intricacies of DMT and its implications for the future of digital assets. Don't miss out on this thought-provoking episode of #TBR 1 hr Podcasts!
We interview the CEO of Xverse, Bitcoin’s #1 wallet provider who recently secured a 5 million dollar seed round of funding to expand and scale their services. Xverse has been deeply involved in the Bitcoin development space, originally being a team member of Stacks which is the leading layer 2 solution to Bitcoin. For many years, Stacks was regarded as the only viable solution to building applications like products on Bitcoin, which led Xverse to build a wallet that would improve the user experience overall for users of that network. Now with the introduction of Ordinals this year, Xverse took the chance to support the ecosystem in its early days and is now the #1 provider for Ordinal asset holders. We discuss what the future of building on Bitcoin looks like and how critical infrastructure needs to be built in order to compete with Ethereum and its smart contract development ecosystem.
We interviewed one of the founders of the FOXXI team which is one of the leading contributors in building utility for the bitmap ecosystem. After the blockout of Bitmap districts, the major question has been who will step up to build and provide the necessary infrastructure to expand the ecosystem in order for Bitmap to become a major force in the metaverse. FOXXI is working on exactly this by focusing on the social side by creating a platform allowing Ordinal owners to form relationships and also by creating a bitverse where community members will be able to deploy their own virtual environment to connect and explore. This is one of the first attempts at building a 3D immersive layer on top of Bitmap that will grant new utility to all Bitmap owners. We discuss also a built in mechanism that will allow Bitmap owners who deploy their Virtual Environments to extract “bits” which will serve as a mechanism to reward BRC20 tokens down the line, introducing an even greater utility proposition.
We were part of a truly unique experience where we did an in-world podcast in the virtual world Hyperfy. We were part of a panel with some metaverse OGs, Routan, Morph, and Jin. We discussed our history and experience building in the open metaverse over the last few years and how that unique experience can be applied for the Bitmap ecosystem. Jin specifically has built a massive variety of open source technologies to enable developers to expand on his work. With the opportunity that Bitmap presents, an open canvas for metaverse development is available and needs the contribution of industry experts to provide the necessary infrastructure to fuel a thriving ecosystem. This is one of the more interesting conversations and experiences we have had on the channel.
