Bitcoin ordinals dominate trends

Bitcoin Ordinals emerged as the best-selling NFT collection within the past week. It is a Bitcoin blockchain-based non-fungible token marketplace designed using Satoshi Nakamoto’s (the anonymous BTC creator) ordinal concept.

Bitcoin Ordinals’ $24 million sales volume represented a 196% seven-day increase. The collection likely benefits from the ongoing BTC-triggered market recovery. The bellwether crypto reflects stable momentum after crossing the sought-after $60K.
