    What Are BRC-20 Tokens? 

    BRC-20 is a new experimental token standard that allows the minting and the exchange of fungible tokens through the Ordinals protocol on the Bitcoin Blockchain

    Same to ERC-20 tokens, BRC-20 tokens highlight different functions and mechanisms. Although BRC-20 tokens were gaining massive popularity during the first half of 2023, they are still experimental, and users must take precautions before dealing with said tokens. 

    How To Buy And Sell BRC-20 Tokens?

    First things first. What you need is a wallet, obviously. But not just any wallet will do the job. You need a special wallet for bitcoins like UniSat Wallet or the Ordinals Wallet. Here, we will be providing examples of how to buy and transfer BRC-20 tokens according to the UniSat website. 

    1. UniSat Wallet:

    •  Download the Chrome extension from the Unisat website.

    • You can also head to the ‘BRC-20’ section to check out the newly created tokens. 
    • You can also select “In-Progress” to see all the tokens that are still available for mint.
    • Note: You should avoid tokens with: More than 90% progress (lose fees). And Low holders & transactions (red flag).

    2. Buying: 

    • Simply head to the ‘Marketplace’ section in UniSat. And this is where you will be able to buy your BRC-20 token. 
    • You must make sure that the token you want to invest in is not completely minted. Meaning that it is 100% minted and there is no supply left. You can check this out on websites like CoinCarp or the website BRC-20.io
    • When buying in a Marketplace you must be aware that buying and exchanging BRC-20 tokens are not by your terms. Meaning you cannot simply buy 1 ORDI you must buy the amount presented e.g.: 200 Ordi for the price presented. Here the price is 8. 28$ per Ordi. So, you would end up buying 200 Ordi for $1656.
