Crypto derivatives firm BitMEX has identified over 13,000 Ordinals NFTs on the Bitcoin blockchain, evidence that buzz about a still-young flavor of non-fungible tokens is growing fast. [Gamma.io](http://Gamma.io) , the company behind the NFTs, released a no-code creator tool for anyone with a Bitcoin address. In a few short weeks, the sudden influx of JPEGs and other media files onto Bitcoin has consumed 526 megabytes of block space and cost creators 6.77 bitcoin (roughly $155,000 at the time of publication), according to the post. The surging popularity of Ordinals has drawn the ire of prominent Bitcoiners such as Rene Pickhardt, who accused the Ordinals crowd of “spamming” the most dominant blockchain with oversized JPEGs. Ordinals’ share of total Bitcoin transactions barely cracked the 3% mark on Wednesday, yet they consumed nearly 70% of the Bitcoin block space.
