Bitcoin Ordinal Inscriptions pass 600,000 milestone as Apes arrive
Cloning of Bored Apes to Bitcoin blockchain adding to soaring volumes
The popularity of digital collectibles has led to a recent surge in Inscriptions, with the total number of Ordinals inscribed to Bitcoin’s blockchain now surpassing 600,000. An upsurge in Ordinals creation has been ignited by the reproduction of the popular Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection on the Bitcoin Network. Notably, this massive effort to clone 10,000 digital assets is entirely community-driven.
The Bitcoin Apes are byte-perfect Ordinal recreations of the original Bored Apes, meaning that they are identical copies. While some are concerned about the reproduction of NFTs on the Bitcoin blockchain, others see it as a positive development that will help to secure the network by providing additional revenue for miners.
