Earth Wallet now supports secure self custody of Bitcoin Ordinals.
In the past, art and history were stored on physical mediums like canvas, vinyl, and stone. But now, we're entering a new era where digital content can be stored on-chain. And we're thrilled to announce that Earth Wallet is leading the charge with the launch of the first cross-platform self-custody wallet to support media storage on Bitcoin through the innovative Ordinals protocol.
What are Bitcoin Ordinals?
You might be wondering, what exactly are Bitcoin Ordinals? Well, created by the brilliant Casey Rodarmor and launched in January 2023, the Ordinals protocol allows for the inscription of digital content such as art, text, or video, onto the Bitcoin Blockchain. Some have dubbed Ordinals as "Bitcoin NFTs", and for good reason - they enable an immutable, on-chain presence of the inscribed content that Ethereum and other blockchain-based non-fungible tokens simply can't match.
Ordinals are based on the revolutionary Ordinal theory, which proposes a methodology for individually identifying and tracking each individual satoshi throughout the Bitcoin token supply. This means that every satoshi has its own unique identity, which can be imbued with distinct characteristics as it travels from minting through the full lifespan of transactions.
Bringing Bitcoin back to Earth
At Earth Wallet, we're bringing Bitcoin back down to earth by offering the first Ordinals self-custody wallet with dApp connections for Bitcoin Ordinal marketplaces. Our intuitive user interface enables seamless marketplace on- and off-ramps, making it easy for our users to securely store, trade, mint and inscribe Ordinals.
We're also actively seeking collections and marketplaces interested in partnering with us to rapidly enhance adoption of Ordinals across the world. Since their inception, the number of Ordinals inscriptions has doubled every week, and we're convinced that with more infrastructure for trading and inscribing Ordinals, this number could be even greater.
So why should you choose Earth Wallet over other browser-based wallets? Because our self-custody wallet affords users unparalleled protections against loss and theft of your Ordinals. Don't settle for less than the best.
Join the immutable energy revolution today by downloading Earth Wallet and start inscribing and minting your own Bitcoin Ordinals. And if you have any questions or want to learn more, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We can't wait to hear from you!
