Stacks price more than doubled on Bitcoin ordinals hype, but why?


Фев 26, 2023

Недавние отчеты Matrixport предположили, что Stacks (STX) — уровень протокола смарт-контрактов, работающий поверх биткойнов (BTC), — вполне может суждено стать «многомиллиардным токеном» благодаря его связи с новыми не основанными на биткойнах (BTC) протокол взаимозаменяемых токенов (NFT) Bitcoin Ordinals, но насколько тесно переплетены эти два протокола? Согласно  данным аналитики Dune , почти 178 000 ординалов биткойнов были «вписаны» в блокчейн биткойнов на постоянной основе, потратив 1,273 миллиона долларов на сборы — все эти сборы являются BTC. Это нововведение также привело к увеличению размера блоков биткойнов и уже добавило почти 3,3 гигабайта к данным, которые любой полный узел будет вынужден загружать, несмотря на то, что он был запущен только 21 января 2023 года. Объем хранилища, используемый надписями Bitcoin Ordinals | Предоставлено Дюной As explained in a recent analysis, Bitcoin Ordinals leverage the discounted — by 75% — blockspace reserved for the Taproot scipts introduced on Nov. 12, 2021 to save short videos, images and other types of content directly on chain and provid an all-in-one decentralized NFT solution. Still, this was not the intended use of this feature with Bitcoin only allowing 80 bytes of transaction space for non financial data in the form of the OP_RETURN entry, while such NFTs can easily take most of a block on their own.

Still, none Bitcoin Ordinals’ features leverages anything that is not part of the base protocol: in other words, Stacks is not involved. Still, Stacks lists a total of 21 NFT-involving decentralized applications (DApps) based on its protocol — among those, only three of those mention the keyword “Ordinals” on their website. Of those three, one is a data platform, another one only mentions Bitcoin Ordinals in a blog post. The third one is Gamma, a service that allows its users to inscribe Bitcoin Ordinals. A video tutorial published by Gamma two weeks ago shows that it allows users to create a Bitcoin Ordinal featuring an image or text — interestingly only BTC is involved in the transaction. Where Stacks come into the picture is on Gamma’s auction page, where Bitcoin Ordinals are listed with prices in STX. In other words, when it comes to the Ordinals ecosystem Stacks’ primary involvement is being means of payment in auctions for those assets and act as an equivalent of the OpenSea NFT marketplace. Still, whether it is enough to result in STX becoming a multibillion dollar token as suggested by Matrixport according to a Coindesk report remains to be seen. OpenSea supporting already eight blockchains is now likely to add another one to its collection, whether Stacks will become the primary protocol to power Bitcoin Ordinals exchange is still largely unknown given how young the ecosystem still is. OpenSea — the world’s top NFT exchange with its eight supported protocols — reached a $13 billion valuation with its C funding round back in early January, 2022. Stacks price since Bitcoin Ordinals launched on Jan. 21. | Courtesy of CoinMarketCap Following the launch of Bitcoin Ordinals, STX has enjoyed a heightened level of attention with it culminating in an intense bullrun started on Feb. 17 and lasted until a Feb. 24 correction. This increased the coin’s price from $0.32 up to a high of nearly $0.885 — a growth of nearly 177%. Similarly, also the volume increased from its Feb. 17 level of $18.11 million to a high of $871.34 on Feb. 20 — an increase of 4,711%. Follow Us on Google News
