The Weekly Stack: Trade your Prints 🛒
Welcome to Gamma's weekly newsletter, where we share all the latest updates and art from the Bitcoin NFT community. Subscribe and share so you never miss an issue!
Trade your Prints
We first unveiled Gamma Prints a few weeks ago for artists in our Partner Program to sell fun, high-quality artwork on Bitcoin at an accessible price point. When we released Prints, we had a goal in mind: Allow creators to earn and grow a collector base without the pressure of "having to sell out." Releasing Prints without trading enabled was intentional — it allowed us to test the hypothesis that real collectors exist on Bitcoin.
With over a thousand unique collectors in just a few short weeks, we’re extraordinarily proud for creators and art lovers on Bitcoin. Now that several Prints have begun to sell out, we’ve released secondary trading with a custom UI built right into the Prints experience. Check it out now!
As always, Gamma supports creators and their craft, so our secondary Prints market supports royalties. By default, this is set to 5% to the artist's primary address. But, you can adjust this in a brand new Prints management console.
Check out the rest of our updates in this thread and start exploring or trading your Prints!
Gamma’s Partner of the Week
We’re always looking for new ways to support artists and creators using Gamma. As part of this initiative, we’re excited to introduce a series known as Partner of the Week, where each week we highlight one of the many talented Partner Artists with a Twitter/X feature and a recorded interview to help share their stories.
Today, we’re spotlighting Nietta, a remarkable Aria & Deadly nominated illustrator from Australia.
For her debut launch on Bitcoin, Nietta launched her print Earth Angel Tania, dedicated to her late mom whom Nietta described as “my advocate when everybody else was telling me that you can't make money from art.”
You can find more of Nietta’s work on her Gamma profile, as well as on the thread we published today on Twitter/X. As we continue to spotlight the vibrant talent within our community, we invite you to explore and celebrate new creators on Gamma. Stay tuned for more artist features!

Galaxy Research on Ordinals
Galaxy recently released their second report on Ordinals, and the takeaways are impressive. Here are a few highlights:
In the first 200 days since the first inscription on Bitcoin, 1.14mn image-based inscriptions were created. This exceeds the NFTs minted on Ethereum, Solana, and Polygon in their first 200 days!
From January 1 to September 1, the total cumulative trading volume for Ordinals on Bitcoin was $596.4mn, making Bitcoin the third most popular network for NFTs by trading volume next to Ethereum and Solana.
