Podcasts: Bitcoin Blockspace As Electrical Markets With Leo Zhang 🔗 8 days ago

Compass Podcast | Bitcoin Mining News

Welcome back to The Mining Pod! On today’s show, we’re sitting down with Leo Zhang of Alkimiya Protocol to discuss their novel trading solution for Bitcoin blockspace. Yes, you read that right! Alkimiya enables parties like wallets, miners or professional traders to take a position on Bitcoin blockspace. Widespread usage of this trading platform could enable wallets or others to issue on-chain transactions even when fees are high, balancing out the long term volatility of Bitcoin transaction fees. For miners, it might open up doors for trading a new commodity: Blockspace.
