NFTs: CryptoPunks becomes Ordinal Punks

CryptoPunks NFT have always been a flywheel for this world, now they are starting to be exchanged for Ordinal Punks.

Recap on the Ordinal Punks NFTs

It certainly seems that Bitcoin’s NFTs are growing in popularity by leaps and bounds, to the point where they are being traded with the more emblazoned CryptoPunks nft.

A software engineer, Casey Rodarmor, thanks to an intervention made on Bitcoin’s blockchain on 21 January, introduced the Ordinals protocol.

Thanks to the protocol that was incorporated into Bitcoin’s blockchain, it is now possible to enter data called Ordinals.

Each of the 100,000,000 units that make a Bitcoin are also called ‘sats’.

The data not only allows NFTs to be created from scratch but also smart contracts on the historical chain.

As of today, it is essentially possible to create NFTs not only on the Ethereum chain, but also on the Bitcoin chain.

Ordinal Punks constitute a collection of Bitcoin NFTs of 100 PFPs.

The PFPs are minted within the first 650 entries at last in a reliable manner on the Bitcoin chain.
