Bitcoin SV (BSV), through its unlimited blockchain scaling, is set to be the data ledger of the future. With larger block sizes and an increased OP_RETURN limit, BSV isn’t just the fastest and cheapest cryptocurrency in the world, it’s also a great way to permanently save the most valuable data to an immutable ledger. Bico.Media is a great way to leverage this capability, by quickly and easily writing files to the blockchain.
If you’re unfamiliar with how to use Bico.Media, the site provides all of its documentation up front. If you’re just trying to write a simple file to the blockchain, you can do so with add.bico.media. If you want to view your file on the blockchain, just visti bico.media/[TXID], where [TXID] is the transaction ID where your file can be located, helpfully provided after you’ve made your upload. If the file isn’t one that can natively be viewed in a browser, just add the file extension at the end, like .doc for example.
We tested the site using several files and ran into very few problems. Uploading pictures (both .jpegs and .pngs) and word documents was fast and only cost pennies using Money Button. Accessing them was equally fast, with the images presenting in the browser, and the word document downloading as any file would from the internet.
For more advanced Bitcoin and developmental users, bico.media offers a wide range of support for BSV protocols, like B://, C://, D://, JSON, Mustache, and more. With
