In this episode we dive into… ordinals! Ordinal numbers are serial numbers for satoshi. Every satoshi, which is ¹⁄₁₀₀₀₀₀₀₀₀ of a bitcoin, has an ordinal, and every ordinal has a satoshi. Ordinals are Casey's somewhat crazed project to bring collectable sats, and eventually, digital art and NFTs, to Bitcoin. Strap in, because it's a bewildering ride through a sat bazaar, redolent with the smell of rare and exotic ordinals.
