  1. I know many people were vouching for Ordinals but I actually think this will give Bitcoin the features users actually want to use.

  2. This could be a huge shift for BTC. I don’t even know if people are aware that L2 chains exist outside of ETH lol

  3. Super bullish on this project. They keep knocking down milestones and have a badass development team.
