To port the project, the developer used “inscription” technology; these are tokens based on the DRC-20 standard. When the client is deployed, all data is pulled directly from the Dogecoin blockchain.
Amid the launch, online activity jumped. A similar situation was observed at the stage of the appearance of Inscriptions in the Bitcoin network.
The function of the Inscriptions has been repeatedly criticized. In particular, the US National Vulnerability Database (NVD) has flagged the “inscriptions” created in the Ordinals protocol as a cybersecurity threat to the Bitcoin network. According to the warning, in some versions of Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Knots, BRC-20 can bypass restrictions on the amount of data transferred through a transaction by disguising it as code. Being listed as an NVD means a cybersecurity vulnerability has been studied, cataloged, and deemed necessary for public attention.
