Our team has been working on a fun experiment of combining an EVM with Bitcoin in the last couple of months. Since the Taproot Upgrade, we can write more data onto Bitcoin. Ordinals was the first one that let people write files onto Bitcoin. We took a different approach. Instead of jpegs and text files, we let developers deploy smart contracts and dapps onto Bitcoin.
So now we can write “bigger” smart contracts thanks to the large on-chain storage on Bitcoin. Did anyone explore this direction? Would love to exchange notes.
