For those new to the concept of inscriptions, the hosts offered an introductory explanation. Initially developed as a method to create token equivalents on Bitcoin by inscribing data onto individual satoshis, this idea swiftly transitioned to EVM chains. With the rising momentum of the inscriptions trend, the hosts aimed to examine its broader implications and potential impact.
