The number of registered inscriptions on the Bitcoin network, indicated by the BTC ticker, has experienced another significant surge. It has nearly doubled, rising from 2.5 million to 4.78 million in just the past eight days.

The widespread adoption of text-based inscriptions, now known as the BRC-20 token standard, has been the primary driver behind the significant increase in registered inscriptions on the Bitcoin blockchain.

According to Galaxy Digital, a digital asset investment firm, the combined value of BRC-20 tokens, often referred to as “Bitcoin NFTs,” is currently around $700 million. However, they predict that by 2025, the market for these unique digital assets based on Bitcoin could grow significantly, reaching an estimated value of $4.5 billion.

The increasing popularity of Ordinals in recent months has led to ongoing discussions about whether they bring overall benefits to the Bitcoin ecosystem.

According to Dan Held and other Bitcoin supporters, Ordinals expand the range of financial possibilities for Bitcoin. However, some strict Bitcoin advocates believe that Ordinals deviate from Satoshi Nakamoto’s original vision of Bitcoin as a digital cash system for direct transactions between individuals.

At the same time, miners have experienced a significant increase in their earnings as a result of the transaction fees generated by the surge in network activity.
