This isn't relevant to a raspberry pi of course but is pretty cool
extensive story of digital history.

I didn't find any other processes using the tty device file than the
terminal I had open. This is clearly not a buggy chip to me, as tty's are
kernel level concepts. Similarly video drivers usually don't have tty
splash screens that I'm aware.
I figure it was some rogue splashscreen process but wasn't sure how to look
for it given nothing else had the device open with `sudo fuser /dev/tty1`.

A blockchain network severely slows down if the chain gets bulked, but
usually in hacker circles software code is what is trusted to defend
against that, rather than community norms.
Re slowness, see bitcoin sv stn which takes huge resources to sync the
chain due to its gigabyte blocks.
Great for preventing destruction of data on chains designed for it of
