BTC Inc., through its Ordinals-focused division Rare BTC, has facilitated the sale of inscription number 76 for 1.7 BTC, equivalent to approximately $61,000 at the time of sale.
This sale demonstrates the active interest and perceived value in the Ordinals space, with Rare BTC positioning itself as a key player in the market for these distinctive bitcoin-based digital artifacts and unique satoshis.
The bitcoin ecosystem experienced a surge in Ordinals activity earlier this year, between May and June, with trading volume nearing that of Ethereum NFTs and resulting in a spike in bitcoin fees. After a slower summer, Ordinals activity is picking up and approaching the levels seen in May. Notably, yesterday, public Ordinals trading volume in the previous 24 hours surpassed that of Ethereum NFTs for the first time.
Rare BTC specializes in the sale of rare satoshis and Sub-100 Ordinals, highly sought after in the digital collectibles space. This recent transaction follows a previous successful brokerage by Rare BTC, where inscription number 20 was sold for 3 BTC.
The company’s role in the Ordinals market includes connecting collectors, artists, and independent brokers to facilitate transactions. BTC Inc.’s established network within the Bitcoin community and its reputation for reliability play a crucial part in completing these sales, particularly as it offers escrow services to ensure secure exchanges between buyers and sellers.

Bitcoin Magazine was a pioneer in the Ordinals space, having inscribed its own historic print magazine covers into the bitcoin blockchain among the first 100,000 inscriptions. The oldest cover, Historic Cover #1, sold for 1.25 BTC at auction.
