Understanding Bitmap and the Ordinals Metaverse

Unlocking the metaverse: Embrace Bitmap and Ordinals for boundless possibilities!

Updated over a week ago

Welcome to the Magic Eden Help Centre! In this article, we'll provide an overview of the Bitmap protocol on the Bitcoin Ordinal platform, its functionalities, and how it empowers users to be a part of the Metaverse.

What is Bitmap?

Bitmap is a consensus standard that allows anyone to claim digital 'real estate' within a Bitcoin Block. This is achieved through Ordinal Bitmap Inscriptions, where individuals can be the first to inscribe "blocknumber.bitmap" unto a Satoshi.

By doing so, they make that specific Bitcoin Block a part of the emerging Metaverse. The process is equitable and decentralized, transforming Bitcoin Blocks into virtual assets. The concept was proposed by @blockamoto.

How does Bitmap work?

With Bitmap, any block on the Bitcoin blockchain can be inscribed, effectively making it a part of the Metaverse. The platform enables the parsing of Block Data. It takes advantage of the nature of data's unique ability to be parsed from multiple angles, granting build access to the block owners. This novel approach revolutionizes open-source development, creating exciting opportunities for digital creators and users alike.

Understanding Bitmap Ownership

Inscribing a Bitcoin Block with Bitmap is akin to owning property within the Bitcoin blockchain. The wallet that successfully inscribes the block becomes the rightful owner, giving them the ability to exert control over the block's digital real estate.

Contributing to the Metaverse

Bitmap provides block owners with the opportunity to actively contribute to the Metaverse. By owning a block, users gain a platform for building upon their owned space, fostering vibrant and community-driven environments within the Metaverse.

Where can you buy Bitmaps?

Since the Blockout event has already occurred, Bitmaps can now be acquired through secondary markets. You can find them right here on Magic Eden's Bitcoin platform!

What is Unique about Bitmaps?

  • First Metaverse on Bitcoin: Bitmap is pioneering as the first Metaverse built on the Bitcoin blockchain.

  • Versatile Metaverses: Bitmap offers the potential for various Metaverses, where users have control over unique environments.

  • Developer Interest: The platform has already attracted many developers who are actively building exciting projects on it.
