Developer Gives Litecoin Network Inaugural NFTS by Forking Bitcoin Ordinals

Developers are trying to provide older proof-of-work networks, particularly Litecoin, with their initial collection of non-fungible tokens by splitting Bitcoin ordinals.

Anthony Gurrera, a lead Bitcoin developer, announced splitting the code that forms the basis of Bitcoin ordinals to the Litecoin blockchain.

Inaugural Litecoin-based NFT

Gurrera executed the process by integrating Litecoin’s mimblewimble upgrade whitepaper copy to the network, making it the initial NFT on Litecoin (LTC).


Gurrera’s efforts originate from a group of 15 LTC tokens bounty placed by a crypto Twitter user, Indigo. The user challenged developers with the capability to split ordinals. He further stated the rules involved, including the obligation to work with Litecoin Core and convey the Github repo successfully. Indigo promised to award the bounty to the first developer to port to Litecoin.

Resurgence in Ordinals-driven Development

Ordinal protocols play crucial roles, such as facilitating the inscription of references to digital art. The ordinal protocol enables individuals to make transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain, thereby creating Bitcoin-founded NFTs.

The findings from FSInsight research revealed that a resurgence in ordinals-driven development and expansion relative to the total transactions and secured value on the Bitcoin blockchain could trigger the price increase

Popularity of Inscription Creation

The scrutiny by FSInsight portrayed Litecoin ordinals as open-source, allowing one to modify and upgrade the code. The analysis portrayed Bitcoin ordinals as becoming fairly successful despite courting controversy initially among the purist developers. 

Dune Analytics data have recently shown the creation of multiple inscriptions exceeding 153000 just three weeks since the launch. The inscriptions involve unique tokens whose creation averages 5000 from the Dune Analytics data.
