The integration enables the OKX wallet to support BTC taproot addresses through its browser extension, with mobile support currently in development. This development will make it easy for users to view and trade Bitcoin NFTs from anywhere.
Bitcoin ordinals, launched in January, have proven popular with users who are looking to add a new layer of functionality to their NFTs. However, there are currently only a few marketplaces that offer support for buying and selling these inscriptions.
The OKX platform aims to address this issue and establish itself early in this emerging market by allowing users to import their Bitcoin addresses and view their inscriptions on a single interface. The platform’s wallet is designed to be easy to use and interoperable, making it a perfect choice for users who are looking for an all-in-one crypto wallet.
According to Haider Rafique, Chief Marketing Officer at OKX, “The OKX Wallet is designed to be the most interoperable and easy-to-use all-in-one crypto wallet. This meant we had to move fast to welcome the ordinals community and give them an easy way to store, manage, and soon mint ordinals within our wallet services. I hope this integration helps bring more people in to play with this new utility and discover new possibilities on top of Bitcoin.”
OKX’s integration of Bitcoin NFTs makes it the first multi-chain platform to offer this capability.
