Building the Internet on Bitcoin with Ordinal BTC and BSV

David Case (@shruggr) has created a website that provides inscribed data on Ordinals from both BSV and BTC., you can view files that exist on both chains. This is possible through the immutable hashes of transactions and files which, despite being on multiple blockchains, are still unique via SHA-256. This uniqueness allows for secure referencing from websites and assurance that the file served is indeed the file served and will not change.

shruggr linked a DNS TXT record to his domain, which indicated the ordinal for his domain to be used as the HTML. The HTML itself references other files inscribed at the top of both chains. The top image on the site is italics ordinal on BTC referencing other inscriptions on BTC.

BTC Ordinal recursive image

This image is actually three images superimposed on top of each other, where the parent refers to the three by the ordinal BTC.








The BSV ordinal is also recursive, where it has ordinal references to each part of the website, such as the icon, index.html, CSS, and JavaScript:

The ability to build web pages from several immutable files allows for creativity and new markets that weren’t possible before. Since each element now exists separately for public use, one can choose which pieces to build. This allows creators to commodify their images, HTML, CSS or JavaScript instead of just the entire website.

Additionally, creators can choose which pieces to build unique combinations of sites adding another dimension to the marketplace. Just like the BTC Ordinal combines three images to create a single one, anyone could do the same.

shrug and Luke Rohenaz(@wildsatchmo), pioneers of the 1 Sat Ordinals version of the viral token protocol originally built on BTC,joined a Twitter spaceimmediately afterwards to discuss this innovation. This concept revives the idea that Bitcoin can replace the internet, through experimentation that began soon after the fork of BSV and Bitcoin Cash in November 2018. In 2019,_unwritercreated a Bitcoin browser called Bottle, in which users browsed files uploaded to the BSV blockchain instead of the internet via HTTP.

Aside from the split markets aspect, the browsing experience is more robust and secure. For example, many articles, blog posts, and images are lost due to content that is no longer offered. These artifacts may not even exist on the Wayback Machine, as they may not have been captured or may have been deliberately removed if enough of the new culture requires it. Reading old forum posts from 2009 may not even be possible or full of broken links the site may not even be accessible.

Literally,Bitcoin solves this problem.

Not only does Bitcoin solve the internet storage problem, it solves the problem of being able to monetize those old sites, posts, and pictures, while also fixing the incentive that got them going offline in the first place. If owners can consistently make money off the content they actually own, they’re more likely to publish it in the future, and if not, someone else can buy the rights to serve themselves.

Another way to improve your browser experience is security. As shruggr pointed out on the Twitter space, if browsers serve files by their hashes, HTTPS is no longer required. Content requestors can easily hash the file themselves and compare the hash to verify its legitimacy. Bitcoin may or may not replace the internet, but it will definitely make it more secure, more of a marketplace, and a much better user experience.
