The BNS frenzy
This time last week, we had no code written for the BNS marketplace — only a concept, along with the support from our amazing community.
Today, there are over 1300 live BNS listings and we've crossed 40k STX in trading volume. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our efforts to bring the best NFT marketplace to Stacks. If you haven't seen the new BNS page on Gamma yet, check it out below. 👇
Buy and list any BNS Names NFT today, plus see NFTs listed across any Stacks marketplace.
For those who are just joining us (hello, Ethereans!) keep reading for a super thread on how you can get started with Bitcoin NFTs on Gamma.
Creating a Stacks wallet
Watch out video tutorials below for an in-depth tutorial on how to set up your first Stacks wallet.
Designing your Gamma NFT profile
On Gamma's open marketplace, you can customize your profile pic, connect your BNS and socials, follow your friends, and stay up to date with all NFT activity on Stacks.
Explore more features by watching the tutorial or browsing through gamma.io.
Buying your BNS domain
By now, you might already know how this works. But if you're new here, we've got a few tips for you. From the Gamma secondary marketplace, you can purchase BNS domains from existing owners. If you want to register a new BNS domain (that doesn't currently exist), you can do so through btc.us. For an extended walkthrough, watch the video below.
Keep in mind that you can only use one BNS per Stacks address. To purchase multiple domains, remember to create new accounts in whichever wallet you're using.
Tomorrow morning at 9 am EST, our co-founder Nick will be joining Hiro Wallet's product lead Mark for a special Twitter spaces discussion on all things BNS and wallets. Set a reminder and we'll see you there!
