Bitcoin Core Developer Claims Ordinals a Bug and will No Longer Exists in v27 Upgrade Next Year

Bitcoin Core developer Luke Dashjr claims that Inscription is exploiting a vulnerability in Bitcoin Core to spam the blockchain and hopes to have a final fix before v27 is released next year. He also said Ordinals was an attack on Bitcoin from the beginning.

Bitcoin core developer Luke Dashjr took to X on December 6 to reveal that developers are trying to take out Bitcoin inscriptions before the v27 update next year. It means ordinals and BRC-20 will no longer exist.

Luke Dashjr clarifies that Bitcoin Core has allowed users to set limits on extra data size in transactions through the “-datacarriersize” setting since 2013. However, Inscriptions have found a way to bypass this limit by obfuscating their data as program code.

“This bug was recently fixed in Bitcoin Knots v25.1. It took longer than usual due to my workflow being severely disrupted at the end of last year (v24 was skipped entirely), he added.

Bitcoin Core remains vulnerable in its upcoming v26 release. He hopes for a resolution before the release of v27 next year.
