Guy's Take #66 - Pooping in the Park

Guy's Take #66 - Pooping in the Park

Bitcoin Audible

Bitcoin is a public good. The maintenance and stewardship of the network rests on the conviction and work of 10s or 100s of thousands of node operators who work to validate and ensure consistency among the rules and the truth of the data propagated throughout. NFTs and BRC tokens have come to the Bitcoin timechain, stamping large amounts of data to the chain, and causing bloat in the UTXO set, as well as validation and bandwidth costs. Is the sky falling? Is this totally unimportant? Or is there a meaningful conversation to have about the incentives that led us here, and what, if anything could be done about it? Today's show is an introduction to the problem, a brief assessment of what responses could be made, and an argument on why to be good stewards of our public good, we shouldn't poop in the park. This is Guy's Take #66.

"Money is one of the greatest instruments of freedom ever invented by man. It is money which in existing society opens an astounding range of choice to the poor man, a range greater than that which not many generations ago was open to the wealthy" — F.A. Hayek
