Here's all you need to know to mint and transfer BRC-20 tokens with Xverse wallet.

DISCLAIMER: Xverse is not affiliated with any described token mint, and does not endorse or recommend any cryptocurrency. Users should do their own research and stay vigilant when buying crypto.


BRC-20 is an experimental token standard - somewhat similar to ERC-20 on Ethereum - that enables the minting and transferring of fungible digital currencies on the Bitcoin blockchain. In order to participate in mints and airdrops, you’ll need to have a funded Ordinals-supporting Bitcoin wallet ready to go.

Xverse, the most advanced and user-friendly Bitcoin wallet, makes it easy to mint BRC-20 tokens by providing both a standard BTC address for payments and a special Taproot-enabled BTC address for BRC-20 tokens in one wallet interface. Additionally, you can view your BRC-20 token balances in the wallet, and when desired, you can send or trade them.

Here’s a quick guide:

How to Mint BRC-20 Tokens with Xverse:

Step 1 

Download Xverse wallet, available for iOS, Android or the Chrome Browser extension.

Step 2

You’ll need to own some BTC, which you can purchase directly in your Xverse app using a fiat onramp service. Alternatively, you can “top up” your wallet by using the BTC receive address and send BTC to Xverse from another account or exchange.

Step 3

Once the mint website, you will need to enter two addresses:

  1. Your BTC payment address: This will be used for processing refunds in case you're not one of the future owners of a BRC-20 token. In your Xverse wallet, navigate to the main tab, press the Receive button and choose “Bitcoin” address. Copy the Bitcoin address and insert in the correct field on the BitGod mint website (when released).
  2. Ordinals address: This will be used to receive the BRC-20 token in case you successfully manage to mint one. In your Xverse wallet, navigate to the NFT tab, press the Receive button and choose “Ordinals” address. Copy the Ordinals address (this is a taproot recipient address) and insert in the correct field on the mint website.

Step 4

Send BTC to the address provided on the official mint website. Please be vigilant and beware of scams. Only follow instructions shared by the official mint channels and double-triple-check you're on the correct website.

To send BTC, navigate to the main tab, click on Send button, select BTC, enter the correct amount and select the correct address as prompted by the official website. Then confirm the transaction.

That’s it! Your BRC-20 tokens should appear in your wallet upon receipt. The timing for this will depend on inscription and sending process and network congestion.
