Frequently Asked Questions
How do Bitcoin Runes work?
Bitcoin Runes protocol is a UTXO-based model that assigns a certain amount of Runes to Unspent Transaction Outputs (UTXOs), which help keep track of the Runes token balance. Implementing a transfer function splits the UTXO into several ones, each holding different amounts of Runes.
What’s the difference between Runes and BRC-20 Tokens?
The most significant difference between BRC-20 tokens and Runes is that BRC-20 tokens are based on the Ordinals protocol, while Runes uses a UTXO-based model. Besides, Runes tokens use the special function OP_RETURN to store data, unlike BRC-20 tokens, which rely on the witness segment of a Bitcoin transaction to store data. Finally, unlike BRC-20 tokens, Runes are also Lightning compatible.
How to invest in Bitcoin Runes?
To start investing in Runes tokens, you first need an Ordinals-compatible Bitcoin wallet like Xverse, which can be connected to marketplaces for buying and selling Runes. Next, you will need to fund your wallet with BTC to ensure you have enough funds to cover transaction fees. Finally, you choose the Runes tokens you want to buy as well as the amount and confirm the purchase using your Xverse wallet. Your Runes tokens purchase will take a few minutes to complete and you will see the amount reflected in your Xverse wallet.
Are Bitcoin Runes risky?
Yes. The Runes protocol is still in its developmental stage as an experimental token standard for creating fungible tokens on the Bitcoin network. As such, it is still largely unclear what direction the protocol standard will take. Like any other digital asset, it’s essential for you to tread cautiously with Runes, only potentially investing what you can afford to lose.
