Ordinals Now Available On Litecoin
Not just Bitcoin: Ordinals are now available on Litecoin. After a bounty of over $2000, a coder named Anthony Guerrera has successfully imported the Ordinals NFT protocol onto the blockchain.
What is Ordinals?
Ordinals is an NFT protocol which allows satoshis to be inscribed with data including images and videos. This effectively brings Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to networks that previously lacked them. This technology first launched on Bitcoin, after being enabled by the Taproot upgrade in November 2021.
Bounty Claimed On Saturday
The bounty for porting this technology from Bitcoin onto Litecoin was offered by @indigo_Nakamoto and grew from 5 LTC ($470) up to 22 LTC ($1,978). It was claimed by Anthony Guerrera on Saturday who then announced the launch of Litecoin Ordinals via GitHub.
The following day, he announced the first inscription using this new technology -the whitepaper for MimbleWimble, a planned upgrade for Litecoin – thereby marking a major milestone in digital asset history.
Thanks to this development, users can now create digital assets with unique content directly on both Bitcoin and Litecoin blockchains using the same protocol – further promoting digital asset ownership across multiple networks.
