Launching on Gamma ✨
At Gamma, we’re proud to be building in a space filled with the most passionate and hard-working people out there. We know you’ve got a lot of great options, so here’s a brief rundown of the great features that Gamma offers when it comes to launching your Bitcoin Ordinals project.
A seamless, no-code launchpad: Launch your project on Bitcoin in minutes with our self-service launchpad. No waitlists, no gatekeeping — just upload your files, fill in your details, and submit your collection. From there, it’ll take under 24 hours for us to review the collection (for user safety) and push it live.
Optimizing your files: If you have large files, we’ll automatically compress and optimize them for you, saving you the hassle of having to pre-compress them while also saving your collectors fees when they mint. For all files below 60kb, we won’t compress them.
Control over your collection: You'll have control over your own collection page from start to end. This is where your community can mint your items, and subsequently trade your pieces on the secondary marketplace. If you have a pre-inscribed collection, contact support and we’ll help you put together a collection page on Gamma.
Inscribe-as-you-mint: When launching a brand new collection on Gamma, you won’t pay any fees upfront as a creator. Instead, as your collectors mint your pieces, items will be inscribed and they’ll pay the blockspace fees. This way, creators aren’t limited by upfront costs to pre-inscribe their assets. Once the items are minted, they are instantly tradeable and creators immediately receive proceeds from each mint. If your collection sells out and minters are in the queue, they’ll automatically be refunded.
Royalties: We’re here to support creators — this means always giving an option for royalties. For now, we support 1.5% creator royalties on the secondary market. If you have an existing collection and want to turn on royalties, just contact us.
Trading on other marketplaces: We want what’s best for you as a creator. That means no gatekeeping or exclusivity contracts with Gamma — we’ll even export a list of inscription IDs if you want to bring your collection to other marketplaces. At the end of the day, we’re here to support you and your journey as a creator on Bitcoin.
End-to-end support: Run into any issues? Have questions about your upcoming launch? Don’t hesitate to contact us on Twitter, Discord, or email (email@example.com). You can also find answers to commonly asked questions over on our support portal. For instance, want to learn more about how our new descending auction tool works? We’ve got you covered.

Ordinals on ₿ — Art that will live on
Bitcoin has long since shattered traditional concepts of data storage and transactions with its ground-breaking blockchain technology. This decentralized database, with its robust cryptography and an ever-growing list of interlinked blocks (aka “the chain”), provides a feature paramount to the world of digital transactions – immutability.
It is this characteristic of immutability that ensures a transaction, once recorded, can never be changed or erased, making blockchain a perfect tool for permanent, tamper-proof data storage. Moreover, as a transparent public ledger, Bitcoin allows anyone to explore and verify the contents of its blockchain.
So, what does this mean for the world of Bitcoin Ordinals and why is it such a compelling proposition? Continue reading the latest blog post by Gamma’s Community lead Brett to break down some key concepts.
