My thoughts

The ORC, BRC, or SRC represents an entirely experimental approach, characterized by high-risk assets and limited supporting tools, contributing to an uncertain future. These platforms are built upon the Bitcoin network, known for its drawbacks such as slowness and high costs, leading to the emergence of alternatives like Ethereum, TRON, EOS, Solana, and subsequent blockchain versions (v3, v4, etc.). These advancements aim to overcome the limitations of Bitcoin’s original v1.0.

However, it’s crucial to note that the inscription, driven by short-term FOMO trends, contradicts the progressive development within the blockchain and decentralized finance (DeFi) space. Anchored in an outdated protocol, it lacks the potential for long-term viability and may hinder rather than contribute to the evolution of blockchain technology.

UniSat runs its Layer 2 for the Inscriptions management. We need to use their API for custom applications or use their Wallet.
