Sadly, the BRC-20 token has been giving Bitcoin users the impression that there is a new asset class in town that has come to stay. Consequently, this misconception impacted negatively the trading volume and price of BTC, the leading cryptocurrency by market capitalization when BRC-20 was first released.

BRC-20: The Game Changer 

BRC-20 is an experimental token that was launched earlier this year by an anonymous developer identified as Domo. The token utilizes an Ordinal inscription. Based on their fungible nature and their residence on the Bitcoin blockchain, they only utilize script file storage on BTC instead of leveraging smart contracts. The advent of BRC-20 has caused a major uproar in the NFT ecosystem. 

There is a huge demand for the offering which initially triggered Magic Eden to list the token. In the meantime, nothing has been said concerning when the trading option is returning.
