The introduction of the Inscriptions Marketplace is a welcome development for our Web3 Wallet, enhancing your journey through the decentralized web with its array of features. But if you’re unfamiliar with the concept of inscriptions, or eager to grasp their full impact, then read on as we delve into the essentials, shedding light on their role in the current landscape. 

What are Inscriptions?

In the ever-evolving world of blockchain, an exciting new concept has emerged: Inscriptions.

The concept of inscriptions originated with Bitcoin Ordinals. Since the Bitcoin network doesn’t support smart contracts, it couldn’t directly handle NFTs — or similar tokens. 

However, with the innovation of Ordinals, developers found a way to inscribe data onto individual satoshis (the smallest unit of Bitcoin). This opened a new frontier for creating digital assets on a blockchain originally not designed for them. 

Unlike traditional Bitcoin blockchain entries, which involve transactional data, inscriptions can include a variety of data types, such as text and images. They are immutable, meaning once written, they cannot be altered or deleted, ensuring permanence and security.

BRC-20 Tokens and Their Role

BRC-20 tokens represent a significant leap in the world of inscriptions. They are a type of inscription token minted via the Ordinal protocols on the Bitcoin blockchain. 

Enabled by the Ordinals protocol, BRC-20 tokens assign ordinal numbers to satoshis (Bitcoin’s smallest unit), allowing for the creation of fungible tokens directly on the Bitcoin blockchain.

This approach differs from Bitcoin’s non-fungible Ordinals, as BRC-20 tokens are interchangeable and maintain uniform value. This innovation extends Bitcoin’s utility beyond its traditional role, transforming Bitcoin into a more versatile platform for supporting new tokens.

Inscriptions on EVM Chains: Expanding the Blockchain Frontier

As inscriptions gain traction, their application on Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chains represents a significant evolution — akin to their counterparts on the Bitcoin blockchain, but with a twist. Instead of inscriptions on individual satoshis, they involve embedding data within the transaction input data on Ethereum (or equivalent EVM-compatible chains). 

This process allows for the inscription of diverse data types — such as text, images, and code — directly onto EVM blockchains. This ensures that the inscribed data is an integral part of the blockchain transaction, thereby maintaining its permanence and security.

EVM inscriptions don’t rely on smart contracts, but are instead a part of the transaction input data. This approach makes inscriptions on EVM-chains inherently different, and often more efficient in terms of gas usage, compared to storing data in smart contracts.

Why Inscriptions Matter

Inscriptions aren’t just a novel feature in the blockchain space; they bring benefits that every user should be aware of. Let’s explore the key reasons why you should pay attention to them.

On-Chain Simplicity and Increased Decentralization: Inscriptions help facilitate direct on-chain interactions. This eliminates the need for off-chain protocols, simplifying the process of asset handling on the blockchain. By keeping more activities on-chain, inscriptions contribute to maintaining the decentralized ethos of blockchain technology. A key factor driving the growth of inscriptions is the democratization and accessibility of token creation.

Fair Launch — Democratizing Token Access: Thanks to inscriptions, anyone can deploy a token, and anyone can mint transparently (following the per mint limit). Importantly, it’s not easy for an inscription token to be controlled by a small group if the per mint limit is set properly. It’s this careful balance that embodies the spirit of blockchain’s decentralized ethos.

A New Form of Tokenization: Inscriptions open up a new realm of possibilities for tokenization on the blockchain. Traditionally, Bitcoin has been seen as a digital store of value, akin to gold. However, with inscriptions, Bitcoin (and other blockchains) can be used in an entirely new way. This tokenization adds another layer of value to the blockchain, expanding its utility.

Bitcoin Inscriptions — Enhanced Network Security: By increasing the volume of transactions (and thereby the transaction fees), inscriptions incentivize more miners to participate. This leads to a higher hashing power, making the network more secure. The likelihood of a 51% attack, where an entity gains control of the majority of mining power, is significantly reduced.

EVM Inscriptions — Reduced Costs: Inscription tokens offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional smart contract-based tokens, making transactions cheaper and more efficient. The reason lies in the lower cost of transferring these tokens. Moving ETH, along with an inscription token, is less expensive than transacting with a token built through smart contracts.
