Value Stack #34

Ordswap, PSBT-Exchanges, and Bitcoin Adoption with Jack Liu

Jack Liu is a founding member of Ordswap and has been working in the Bitcoin industry for the past decade in various capacities.

In Value Stack 34, we discuss, the first trustless bitcoin ordinal/inscriptions exchange, and how his team had to build a working product in under a week!

We also review how ordinals and trustless PSBT exchanges work, and speculate on what the future implications might be for inscriptions and NFTs as a trojan horse for bitcoin adoption.
