Binance, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, announced Tuesday that it plans to add support for ordinals, or Bitcoin non-fungible tokens, later in May. However, an exact date has not been announced.

Binance NFT plans to extend its offering by allowing traders the option to buy Ordinals via the Bitcoin network. Binance NFT already supports NFTs Ethereum and Polygon, as well as its native BNB Chain. Collectors will soon be able to buy and sell NFTs or inscriptions created on Bitcoin, extending the reach of the emerging Ordinals ecosystem.

Binance also allows traders to buy Bitcoin-based NFTs using their Binance account, which simplifies the process. Binance wants to simplify the process for new buyers who want to join the growing market. Instead of setting up a Taproot compatible Bitcoin wallet, Binance will allow them to buy Ordinals without having to create a TwelveFold Ordinals.

Mayur Kamat, Binance’s Head of Product, said in a recent press release that Bitcoin is “the most popular choice” among NFT collectors and a market the exchange can tap into.

Kamat said that Bitcoin is the OG in crypto. “We think things are only just getting started and we can’t wait for what the future will hold in this space.”

Binance has had a mixed relationship with Bitcoin in recent times. The exchange suspended Bitcoin withdrawals twice on Sunday. It cited network congestion as a reason.

The demand for Bitcoin NFT marketplaces has increased as Ordinals passed 3 million inscriptions in the last week. NFT Marketplace Magic Eden integrated Bitcoin wallets Hiro, and Xverse in March to add support for Ordinals. The marketplace launched a creator launchpad in April to help artists mint inscriptions prior to listing them on the secondary market.
