How the Ordinals movement will benefit the Bitcoin blockchain



The increasing popularity of Bitcoin NFTs, or Ordinals, will positively impact the Bitcoin network’s security and attract developers to the ecosystem, according to Ordinals proponent Udi Wertheimer. 


According to independent developer Udi Wertheimer, Bitcoin non fungible tokens (NFTs) will positively impact the ecosystem by improving its security and incentivizing developers to build on the network. 


The number of newly created Ordinals has been spiking in recent weeks, causing a surge in transaction fees and average block size on the Bitcoin blockchain. 

According to Wertheimer, Bitcoin NFTs are going to be beneficial for Bitcoin’s security budget. By driving up transaction fees, the creation of Ordinals will incentivize miners to secure the network while the revenue from mining rewards will decrease with each Bitcoin halving.

“Because the block space is scarce and because there’s demand for stuff like inscriptions, there’s a lot of hope that we will get enough people who want to pay fees in order to keep the Bitcoin network secure,” Wertheimer explained in a recent interview with Cointelegraph.

Also, Wertheimer noted, Ordinals provide a new use case to make building on Bitcoin commercially profitable.

“With all of that interest around Ordinals and inscriptions, I expect that there is going to be a very big ecosystem that is built around that,” he said.

Wertheimer dismisses the notion held by some Bitcoin core developers that creating NFTs is not an appropriate use case for Bitcoin. According to him, in recent years, Bitcoin core developers “have ignored what actual Bitcoin users want.“
