Bitcoin Ordinals surge to 3M Inscriptions

Since it began, up to $8 million in fees have been given to caption creators across the network.

The NFT number surpassed 3 million earlier this week after a one-day spike in activity, which consisted mostly of text-based assets.

Inscriptions, operating on the Ordinals Protocol, enable users to insert data regarding digital art into the Bitcoin blockchain using references stated in Bitcoin-based transactions.

The leap follows the introduction of the Bitcoin Request for Comment (BRC-20) token standard, which helps users issue transferable tokens directly through the network. This generated a compilation of digital art and meme tokens based on the Bitcoin platform. The market capitalization of the latter group increased to $137 million.

Creators paid a cumulative 28 Bitcoins to make captions.
