Prints go brrrr 🖨
Last week, we shipped Prints Explore, which lets you custom filter all Prints by artist, tag, price, popularity, and more. We’ve since updated the default Trending tab to include any popular Print, regardless of age. Explore popular Prints on Gamma!
Since the past week alone, over 6000 Prints have been purchased and collected, with all proceeds going directly to the artists. If you’re looking to purchase a Print that has already sold out, you can check out the secondary market or browse popular trading Prints!
Finally, listen to the recording of our recent spaces that 1000 listeners tuned into! Hear from artists, the Gamma team, and get the scoop on the latest alpha. 👀
Bitcoin ETFs Approved
Have you heard the news? The SEC just approved its first ever batch of Bitcoin spot ETFs (exchange traded funds), meaning fund managers and institutional investors can now trade Bitcoin without directly purchasing it and having to navigate between cryptocurrency marketplaces, self-custody wallets, and more.
While this is great news for Bitcoin and may fuel adoption for US investors, you’ll still need to own the BTC asset directly (in your own self-custody wallet) in order to interact with Gamma and the Ordinals ecosystem. If you’re looking for a place to start, you can purchase Bitcoin directly on Gamma or via an exchange, and download your first self-custody hot wallet via Leather or Xverse.

Featured Partner Artist
Welcome to another Featured Artist of the Week, a series highlighting remarkable artists creating Ordinals through the Gamma Partner Program! This week, we’re highlighting Longstreet, a passionate photographer and musician releasing work on both Bitcoin and Stacks.
Longstreet is a creator, and educator, and a parent. As is both a photographer and a musician, his aptitudes have interwoven to allow him to create and express himself freely. "Humanity Wins" sums up his philosophy on all of the above.
Longstreet’s genesis Print on Gamma is titled “Rush Hour Reverie”, where he plays with motion blur photography, a passion of his. He also experimented with this style when creating his ordinals collection Circles. You can still purchase this Print on Gamma!
Longstreet's recent move to France has provided him a rich new tapestry of opportunities for creative flow, and he is always exploring what he can drop next. Check out our conversation with him to learn more about his story and passion for creating, and be sure to follow Longstreet on X to see what he does next!
Thanks for tuning in, we’ll see you next week!
