Until Friday, February 10, 2023, in the Bitcoin–Blockchain added 50,000+ ordinal enrollments as the trend continues to increase daily. People write text, images, videos, audio, and software applications onto the blockchain, with some inscriptions fetching high prices via over-the-counter (OTC) deals.

Ordinal inscriptions are becoming the latest sensation on the NFT market, selling at high prices over-the-counter
Ordinary inscriptions will become increasingly popular in 2023, with the number rising to over 50,000. Just five days earlier, there were only 7,000 inscriptions. As of 12:20 p.m. ET on February 11, 2023, there are 57,179 enrollments hosted on the Bitcoin blockchain. Additionally, several Ordinal Inscriptions have been sold for significant amounts over the past week, including a clone of the Cryptopunks NFT collection known as Ordinal Punks.
Ordinary punks are a collection of 100 generative punks minted within the first 650 inscriptions on the Bitcoin blockchain. Many new Bitcoin-based NFTs are sold through over-the-counter (OTC) transactions using a rudimentary pricing table. Recently Ordinal Punk #41 sold for 11.5 BTC, or $249,052. On Friday the Ordinal Punks surpassed the minimum stats of Cryptopunks. While the trend of ordinal inscriptions is still new, there is limited infrastructure in terms of markets and updated price metrics.

However, the project has been named Emblem Vault created Vaults for ordinal inscriptions, similar to vaults created for Rare Pepe NFTs built with Counterparty and Bitcoin. With Emblem Vault’s technology, Ordinal Inscriptions can be added to the Opensea NFT marketplace and sold for Ethereum (ETH). Emblem Vault suggests Using a community tool to verify punks created by bitcoin to prevent fraud. Emblem Vault tweeted on Saturday: “Remember to make sure before buying any vaulted goods.”
The data shows that people are adding not only images through ordinal inscriptions to the Bitcoin blockchain, but also text, video, applications, and audio. Although images are the most common attachments, text and video captions follow in popularity. Ethereum proponents also use ordinal enrollments as many ETH-based NFTs are enrolled on the Bitcoin blockchain. For example “Onchain Monkeys” (OCM), an Ethereum-based NFT project from 2021, shaped his 10,000-piece collection featuring bitcoin.
“We wrote OCM on Bitcoin in a single inscription in a highly efficient manner,” the team said tweeted. “This is historical precedent reflecting historical development of 10K OCM Genesis created onchain on Ethereum in one transaction.”
