New on Gamma: Ordinal Collection Mints 🎉
Thanks to the quick work by our amazing team at Gamma, we’ve just released the ability to create Ordinal Collection Mints. But this isn’t just your typical buy-in-bulk option — it’s so much more than that. With the technical complexity of Ordinal inscriptions and Bitcoin, we recognize that it’s important to make your user experience as easy as possible.
To do that, we’ve created a tool that allows you to:
Create collections without any code
Mint high-resolution artwork affordably
Launch your collection with minimal upfront costs
Have a dedicated mint/collection page
Learn more about creating Ordinal inscriptions with Gamma on our blog or in the tweet thread below! 🎉
Bitcoin Ordinals & Stacks NFTs
While we started out as an open marketplace for Bitcoin-secured NFTs on the Stacks blockchain, we’ve since added support to view your Ethereum NFTs, and most recently we’ve rolled out support for Ordinals — including a no-code creator portal for Ordinal inscriptions.
Thanks to the recent rise in Ordinals interest, thousands of new friends have joined our community and explored the Gamma marketplace. But recently, we’ve seen quite a bit of confusion around Stacks-based Bitcoin NFTs versus Bitcoin ordinal inscriptions.
So, let’s clear things up — keep reading to learn about the difference between Bitcoin Ordinal inscriptions and Stacks-based NFTs secured by Bitcoin.
Resources & Education
Bitcoin (BTC) is the most well-known blockchain and biggest cryptocurrency. However, its smart contract use cases have been limited due to its scalability, speed and syntax limitations.
The Stacks blockchain aims to change this, by providing a blockchain technology that uses Bitcoin's high security while allowing the creation of smart contracts, using a smart contract language called Clarity, which has an easy to read syntax.
On Gamma, we let you create and explore NFTs on Stacks that are backed by Bitcoin’s security. To learn more about NFTs on Stacks, read our guide below 👇
