There’s that old “regulatory uncertainty” rearing its ugly head once more, despite the launch of spot BTC ETFs last week.

Though NFTs have been staging a welcome comeback of late, regulatory issues, and the somewhat counterintuitive fact that your NFT is stored off-chain in centralised servers, perhaps point to ever-growing adoption of ordinals. The infrastructure around ordinals continues to develop, some elements of which we might find the time to explore in the coming weeks.
