What is BRC20

BRC20 is an experimental format standard for issuing homogeneous Tokens on the Bitcoin network. It was published by @domodata on March 8, 2023 based on the Ordinal Protocol created. Similar to the ERC20 standard of Ethereum, it stipulates the name, circulation, transfer and other functions of Token issued on Ethereum.

BRC-20 leverages the Ordinals inscription in JSON format to deploy token contracts, mint tokens, and transfer tokens.The Bitcoin network is only used as a data layer, and the consensus is guaranteed by an external Indexer.
