Today we have Casey Rodarmor, a bitcoin developer who is working on building non-fungible tokens (NFTs) directly on the Bitcoin blockchain. NFTs are digital assets that are unique and cannot be exchanged for other assets. They have become popular on Ethereum, but have not yet been implemented on the Bitcoin blockchain. Casey is working on a protocol that will allow NFTs to be natively held in a Bitcoin wallet and transferred using Bitcoin transactions. He believes that NFTs have the potential to be a powerful tool for artists and creators to sell and authenticate their work.
