What are BRC20 Tokens?

BRC20 tokens are a new type of asset that are made and stored on the Bitcoin network. They are an experimental fungible token that uses a loophole in Bitcoin’s 2021 Taproot upgrade to add a small amount of data to individual satoshis. BRC20 tokens are modeled after Ethereum’s ERC-20 token standard, allowing programmers to create and send fungible tokens via the Ordinals protocol.

However, unlike ERC-20 tokens, BRC20 tokens do not rely on smart contracts and have fewer features and functionalities. BRC20 tokens offer little functionality when compared to similar tokens on the Ethereum network and offer no profits, dividends, and a lot of risk.

The recent surge in the BRC20 token market can be partly attributed to the growing popularity of Bitcoin’s BRC-20 token standard, which has become a hot trend in the crypto ecosystem
