⚡️Differences between BRC-20 and ERC-20 tokens

The major differences between BRC-20 and ERC-20 tokens are:

– Blockchain Platform: ERC-20 tokens operate on the Ethereum blockchain, whereas BRC-20 tokens are built on the Bitcoin Blockchain. The choice of blockchain platform…

– EVM Compatibility: ERC-20 tokens are fully compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which allows for the execution of smart contracts. On the other hand, BRC-20 tokens are not EVM-compatible, meaning they do not support smart contracts directly.

– Consensus Mechanism: Ethereum uses a Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, while Bitcoin utilizes the Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism. This leads to differences in how transactions are validated and blocks are added to the respective blockchains.

While ERC-20 tokens currently offer more versatility and adoption, BRC-20 tokens hold promise in exploring new possibilities on the Bitcoin blockchain. As the ecosystem matures and evolves, we can expect further developments and advancements in the BRC-20 token space.

Possible scenarios for Bitcoin in the next 1-2 year

Possible scenarios for #Bitcoin in the next 1-2 years and how likely I think they are.

Mini thread. 🧵

— Inmortal (@inmortalcrypto) May 9, 2023

Scenario A

– Top of the rally is in.
– Btc ranges between 20-30k and 2023 becomes a boring year. No new lows.
– At the end of Q4 we break 30k decisively and run up to 48k.

— Inmortal (@inmortalcrypto) May 9, 2023

Scenario B

– Local top is in.
– 25k retest + sustained demand + consolidation above 29k
– Boring Q3, volatility in Q4
– Similar to 2016 price action

— Inmortal (@inmortalcrypto) May 9, 2023

Scenario C

– 25k retest + violent squeeze to +32k, then down.
– Boring Q3 for BTC, massacre for ALT’s.
– Volatility in Q4 (30k breakout).

— Inmortal (@inmortalcrypto) May 9, 2023

Scenarios ordered by how likely I think they are to occur.

1. Scenario B / 60-70%
2. Scenario C / 50%
3. Scenario A / 30-40%

This is just my personal opinion.

If you had to put all your money in one, which one would you choose, A, B or C?

I read you. ❤️

Welcome to the new liquidity paradigm


— Alex (@thiccythot_) May 9, 2023

I, for one, welcome our new our new liquidity overlord

— Alex (@thiccythot_) May 9, 2023

since many people are asking:

– this is binance international
– only taking top 25 levels
– each level is 10 cents
– this only looks at a couple bps deep, not 1%
– not the full liquidity picture but representative of a noticeable pullback

— Alex (@thiccythot_) May 9, 2023

the difference from another random date (1-25) is less but still noticeable

this might be partly due to increased volatility

would welcome someone plotting this throughout the entire history because taking 1 point in time snapshot isn’t entirely representative

— Alex (@thiccythot_) May 9, 2023

as @dlawant mentions, the dropoff in 1% liquidity is less noticeable

the drop off is more dramatic on the the frontier of the book (first few bps)

1% is almost 3,000 levels

I think you need to tie them both together to get the full picture

— Alex (@thiccythot_) May 9, 2023

this blew up faster than I expected

meant as casual shitpost

not trying to paint a narrative

my book is flat

here’s a less extreme example (1/25)

— Alex (@thiccythot_) May 9, 2023

vs yesterday (5/08)

obviously many factors affecting this, not just market makers pulling out as others have astutely mentioned

please be mindful of the nuance
