Monero Observer – ‘Monero Punks’ inscribes first-ever NFT collection on Monero
15 Mar 2023
Monero Punks has inscribed the first-ever 100 NFTs on Monero, thanks to the new Monero Ordinals Project:
First 100 Monero Punks were inscribed with inscriptions 2-102. Thanks a lot for the help of amazing @m0rdinals team!
Technical details and instructions on how to mint and control inscriptions are available on Github/Gitbook’:
An “ordinal” is considered to be the output of a transaction (the 0th output) that contains special data (tx_extra_ordinal_register in the extra field) [..] Implementing ordinals in Monero seemed like an interesting and challenging idea to us.
From a cultural point of view, it is hard to see how NFTs could ever find success on Monero, considering the community’s divergent fundamental values.
However, the timing of this project is rather curious, as it seems to coincide with the resurface of the tx_extra debate in recent MRL meetings. It will be interesting to see if this story has any impact on future discussions.
This is an ongoing story and the report will be updated when new information is available.
