    Runes: Tokens on Bitcoin | Casey Rodamor

    Runes: Tokens on Bitcoin | Casey Rodamor

    Today’s episode is about exploring the frontier of tokens on Bitcoin with guest Casey Rodarmor. Casey is the creator of the Ordinals Protocol, a harmless protocol that simply allowed for arbitrary data to be inscribed into individual Bitcoin UTXOs, creating what are called Bitcoin NFTs. He is now also the creators of Runes, a second protocol, working to bring fungible tokens to Bitcoin. 
    Bitcoin is changing and Casey appears to be one of main reasons for the change. Soon he’ll be unveiling a new protocol standard for Bitcoin - called Runes, which wants to be a bitcoin-native version of fungible tokens, on the Bitcoin L1 - which is going to be the topic of the show today.

Limited World View

Advancing blockchain technology is vitally important. Inviting anyone on to this podcast as long as they share that viewpoint is the modus operandi of Bankless.

When it comes to inviting political candidates on, favoring pro crypto candidates (often those whose views in other arenas are wildly harmful) to the expense of all else underscores the limited perspective these hosts can offer their audiences.
