The process is apparently complex, but in a very uncomplicated way. And how was that possible?

Come on then ... Thanks to a Raspberry Pi card, the developer Youtuber managed to improvise an interface that connects the Game Boy to a computer with internet, using the laptop's Link input, the one used in 1989, for local data exchange.

Shortly after gaining access to the Bitcoin data network, the developer created a small piece of software using a set of tools for creating games for Game Boy and loaded it into a modified cartridge, capable of receiving customized ROMs, the result was satisfactory even if improvised , because it is in operation.

However, this is still a brilliant recreation, even if without much effect, but the idea is what really counts.
