ABCDE Research Note: The Past, Present and Future of the Bitcoin Ecosystem

Bitcoin has been around for over 15 years and was originally positioned as a peer-to-peer payment system independent of any “ecosystem”. Due to the lack of Turing-complete smart contracts, discussions about Bitcoin’s scalability have been popular.

Over the years, we have witnessed debates and controversies about block sizes, hard forks, and lightning networks. Attempts to expand the Bitcoin ecosystem have never stopped.

On March 8, 2023, Domodata opened Bitcoin’s Pandora’s Box by introducing the BRC20 concept and deploying $ORDI. This led to a sudden flood of inscription assets on the Bitcoin network, reminiscent of the Ether ICO boom of 2017. Assets like $ORDI and $SATS experienced exponential growth, with market capitalizations exceeding $1 billion.The surge in the BRC 20 space has fueled continued innovation and growth across the Bitcoin ecosystem.

What is the future of the Bitcoin ecosystem after the intense market interest? How does Bitcoin evolve from a peer-to-peer payment system to digital gold?

As we approach the end of 2023 and the halving of Bitcoin approaches, we present this report to look back at Bitcoin’s past, assess its current state, and look forward to its promising future. Bitcoin Miner Asic
