Out of the many real-world developments being seen on Bitcoin SV (BSV), BitPaste is the latest to receive the spotlight. As with any new application (does anyone remember what apps looked like when Windows was first launched?), BitPaste is still in its infancy and has room to improve, but it is already more robust than similar apps, making a function used every day by millions even easier. It is now possible to share files or text with anyone, anywhere with the BSV blockchain.
In accessing the BitPaste website, users have the choice of sending text, code or even a file. A range of formatting options are possible, including the ability to insert HTML codes and graphics, quotations, bullet points and much more. Sending a file is as simple as dragging it to the platform. From there, the user only has to save the file and then send the location to share it.
Once the file is saved and the address created, users can send the hash to whomever they want. The recipient can take the address to the website, insert it into the search field and view the results. It took all of three seconds for me to create this file. Just copy the link, go to BitPaste.app, paste it and see the results.
When the file is saved, a little bit of BSV has to be paid, which is, of course, understandable. However, it’s only less than $0.01, making it a fair deal. By monetizing the sharing process, it helps to reduce the amount of clutter and FUD that could otherwise be introduced.
As with anything done on the blockchain, the file will remain in place and intact, unable to be changed by anyone. If you want to check back ten years from now, that address should still show the same results. This is one of the reasons blockchain technology really shines. It allows information to be stored and shared on a permanent basis, with no possible chance the information can be altered.
