An experimental 300-piece collection from Yuga Labs on the Bitcoin blockchain
Exciting news for the world of Bitcoin Ordinals! Yuga Labs, a leading experimental art studio, has announced its entry into the Bitcoin Ordinal movement by launching a new generative art collection called TwelveFold. The collection, which will consist of only 300 pieces, will be inscribed onto satoshis and will live on the Bitcoin blockchain.
TwelveFold is a base 12 art system localized around a 12×12 grid, serving as a visual allegory for the cartography of data on the Bitcoin blockchain. The collection includes highly-rendered 3D elements and hand-drawn features that pay homage to the ordinal inscriptions currently done by hand.
We will be announcing more details about timing and the auction mechanics in the coming week. Good luck to all of the bidders—we’re looking forward to sharing this collection with the world.
The Ordinals movement has gained a lot of attention in recent weeks, with collections like OnChainMonkey, DeGods, and Sappy Seals pushing boundaries and making a leap onto the Bitcoin blockchain. Yuga Labs’ involvement in the Ordinals movement may single-handedly mark that Bitcoin NFTs are here to stay.
While the infrastructure and tooling around inscriptions on Bitcoin are still nascent, much of the foundational principles such as provenance, self-custody, and ownership are already present. Yuga Labs expects the technology and the ecosystem around it to evolve and become more sophisticated over time, but not in the same ways other blockchain NFT ecosystems have.
Yuga Labs will be announcing more details about timing and the auction mechanics in the coming week, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for digital artifacts on the Bitcoin blockchain. This announcement is an optimistic sign of the growth and potential of Bitcoin Ordinals, and we are excited to see what other innovative collections will emerge in the future. Stay tuned!
