Yesterday, Ordinals founder Casey posted on the This, and those new inscriptions that would have been cursed will now no longer be cursed.”
Odaily Note: In Judaism, the Jubilee Year, also known as the Jubilee Year, is considered a special time during which debts are forgiven and slaves are freed. In Christianity, the concept of Jubilee has a similar meaning and is seen as a celebration of Gods grace and forgiveness.
Curse Inscription(Cursed Inscription) is because some errors and missing functions caused the Ordinals code to be unable to recognize certain inscriptions, so Casey proposed the concept of cursed inscriptions, giving them negative numbers and treating them as cursed.
Caseys tweet is not a final plan but a rough preview. The currently known methods that can produce cursed inscriptions will be repaired. After Jubilee, these methods will no longer be able to produce cursed inscriptions, which means that cursed inscriptions may Out of print, but it cannot be ruled out that other new bugs will appear in the future resulting in unrecognizable curse inscriptions.
Recent progress and plans
In fact, Cursed Glyphs have been around for so long that the Ordinals team said earlier this year that they would be fixed after a certain block height. Casey also attached to his tweet a related discussion on Github in October this year. Highlights of the discussion include:
Cursed inscriptions may not be assigned positive serial numbers
On October 15th, Casey said “We can do this by following the last positive inscription after activating the altitude.Give them the correct inscription numberto bless the previously cursed inscription. However, Im not sure its worth it, but later said Im hesitant to commit to negative serial numbers never changing.
Two weeks ago, Casey once again made his opinion clear “I think its unlikely well bless the cursed inscription, but the whole point of Cursed Inscriptions is that theyre unstable, so I want to keep that flexibility and not get myself into trouble again by promising stability.
One of the characteristics of the Cursed Inscription is the particularity of its negative serial number. If it is given a positive serial number, its collection value may be greatly reduced, but how to deal with it has not yet been disclosed.
It’s still too early to fix
Ordinals ContributorcbspearsI tend to encourage delaying the jubilee, said Casey. Recently, Casey said that if more special cases are found, he hopes to avoid a second jubilee.
But in less than a month since this question was asked, we have found 2 more specific cases where inscription IDs were found to be inconsistent. I also think weve found another special case.
This means that the current fix may not be comprehensive, and the seeds of the new Cursed Inscription have not yet been fully cleared. Caseys tweet is just a preliminary teaser, and discussions among developers and community members are still ongoing.
Although the specific plans and timetable are still unclear, the market has begun to speculate on the corresponding targets. For example, Cursed Bitcoin Punks, Cursed Pokemon and other Cursed Series NFTs, as well as the concept of the same name BRC-20 token CRSD, Cursed Token-TAP, the trading volume and price have increased significantly for a while.
As a special product of Ordinals, cursed inscriptions do have their own uniqueness and collection value like misprinted stamps. However, due to the uncertainty of future plans, there are still certain risks, and investors need to be cautious.
