The Big Bitcoin NFT Edition 🦄

NFTs on Bitcoin are exploding thanks to Stacks creators. Earlier this week, Bitcoin Birds were gone within an hour, joining the likes of Stacks Pops, Punks, Monks, and more as freshly minted out menageries.

Meanwhile, we were excited to share that Satoshibles are coming home, leveraging Stacks to make the move from Ethereum to Bitcoin, where they truly belong. Elsewhere, Boomboxes crossed over $1M in TVL, pushing the unique magic of yield generating NFTs forward in the name of Bitcoin DeFi.

Overheard and seen in the last few days:

"How do you keep up with the mints?!"

"I want a damn Bitcoin Bird so bad it hurts"

"Bitcoin literally makes your NFTs more valuable"

Having FOMO? Don't stress. Although many collections have been fully minted, some great marketplaces (linked later in this email) are springing up where you can get your hands on all the new hotness. There, you'll also find a list of upcoming NFT drops so you can be ready to snag one when minting goes live.

Personally, I can't wait for my very own Stacks Succulent, finally a plant I can't kill - how about you?

See you at the mint!

🚀 Stacks in the News

“Watch out bitcoin, there's a new crypto in town. 😉 In August, CityCoins launched MiamiCoin, which the mayor says he hopes one day could fund city programs – and eventually even replace taxes. Kate Rooney has the story."

Hint: The answer is yes. NFTs are launching on Bitcoin. It's being done through Stacks, which settles its transactions to the leading crypto's blockchain. And, be sure not to miss your fellow Stacker, Alla from Layer, being quoted in Benzinga's breakdown of NFTs this week.

The Orbit Chain team will integrate the Stacks blockchain and turn their attention to creating bridges between Stacks’s Bitcoin-connected blockchain and Orbit Chain’s growing ecosystem of public blockchains.
