Bored Ape-parent Yuga Labs gears up for NFT collection TwelveFold auction on Bitcoin

Bored Ape Yacht Club, a blue-chip NFT collection on the Ethereum blockchain, has gained massive popularity in the crypto community. Bored Ape-parent Yuga Labs recently announced a limited edition of 300 generative art NFTs called “The Twelvefold.” 

The TwelveFold auction will begin on March 5 at 3 PM PT. It will conclude within 24 hours.

According to a recent report by Galaxy Research, the NFT market on the Bitcoin blockchain could hit $4.5 billion by 2025. According to Galaxy analysts, the wild run of Bitcoin “Ordinals,” inscriptions on the BTC blockchain was just the beginning. 

Analysts believe the Bitcoin Ordinal frenzy of the last two months is no blip, and there is a massive demand for the ability to store NFTs on the world’s oldest and most established blockchain. 

How is the Bitcoin NFT market distinct from its competitors?

The cost of inscribing on the Bitcoin network is distinct from Ethereum. By Galaxy’s estimation, the cost of inscribing 10,000 Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs on the Bitcoin network would be $229,000. 

To avoid high costs, creators would create limited art series; Bitcoin could emerge as the home of much rarer, “high quality” art projects and valuable one-of-ones. Meanwhile, other chains like Ethereum will continue to host massive, multi-thousand-piece collections at much lower costs to creators.
