- Created by Casey Rodarmor, Ordinals protocol NFTs have hijacked the Bitcoin blockchain blockspace to fuel conversations about “censorship.”
- Bitcoin core developers Adam Back and Luke Dashjr recently spoke in favor of using new NFTs to censor unwanted transactions.
- BTC developers and followers complicit in an “inscription” containing 277 digital artifacts, urging miners to censor their transactions.
A Bitcoin core developer has recently criticized the “Ordinals Protocol,” a type of NFT launched on Ethereum’s mainnet that recently spread to Bitcoin. BTC Maximalists, who believe Bitcoin is a superior digital asset compared to other cryptocurrencies, recommend a new NFT ‘censorship’ known as ‘Inscription’ on Bitcoin’s blockchain. .
Ethereum developers are working to make the ETH blockchain censorship-proof, but the BTC community, influencers, and core developers are urging miners to censor “unwanted transactions” inscriptions. I am urging you.

Bitcoin Censorship Debate Continues After Ordinals Protocol Brings Memetic NFTs to Mainnet
The Ordinal Protocol, an NFT project that launched on Bitcoin’s mainnet on January 21, has sparked debate in the cryptocurrency community about whether “digital artifacts” like NFTs are suitable for Bitcoin’s blockchain. I was.
Development has divided the community. Ordinals protocol creator Casey Rodarmour has announced that “Inscriptions” is finally ready for his BTC mainnet. Rodarmours’ NFT-like projects are decentralized, immutable, always-on-chain, and native to Bitcoin.
The inscription is finally ready for the Bitcoin mainnet.
The inscription resembles an NFT, but is a true digital artifact. It is decentralized, immutable, always on-chain and native to Bitcoin. https://t.co/a4dK7zdITS

An inscription is made to Satoshi who is tracked and transferred using order theory. This gives them individual identities and allows them to be tracked and transferred between transactions. Inscriptions began to appear on the Bitcoin mainnet.
Rodarmour’s project splits the BTC community in two, with some arguing that the development will offer more financial use cases for Bitcoin, and others from Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision for Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer cash system. Some say it’s deviant. Some Bitcoin advocates and core developers have gone a step further, urging miners to “censor” unwanted transactions.
Ethereum Supporters Criticize BTC Blockchain Calls For “Censorship”
Ethereum advocate and developer Anthony Sasano has called the Bitcoin community “censored.” While Ethereum and his ETH development community sees making the blockchain “censorship-resistant” as one of their goals, bitcoin core developers such as Adam Back and Luke Dashjr have said over the past 48 hours that Miners should censor such transactions on the blockchain.

The crypto community is concerned that users may see “inscriptions” as status symbols, which could prevent marginalized people from participating in the Bitcoin network. Developers are concerned about meme culture being brought into Bitcoin, suggesting developers bring their “stupidity” elsewhere.
Blockstream’s CEO Back is among those who want such “unwanted” transactions to be censored. TSassano has criticized Blockstream CEO for his Ethereum developer he was criticized by Sassano.
