Bitcoin Dogs: New NFT and gaming project on Bitcoin

Bitcoin and NFTs have taken on a new level of interest after the initial surge seen when software engineer Casey Rodarmor unveiled bitcoin ordinals in late 2022.

As Rodarmor opined in early 2023, the plan was to “make bitcoin fun again.” It’s a vision that has inspired multiple NFT projects today. Various experts say the Bitcoin layer-2 ecosystem and inscriptions is still at the nascent stage.

Bitcoin Dogs, the new blockchain project set to bring NFTs, gaming and crypto tokens together on Bitcoin, is one of the hottest crypto presale tokens today. 

The whitepaper outlines a total supply of 900 million 0DOG minted on the BRC-20 token standard and 10,000 unique ordinals NFTs. It’s a combination that rolls crypto, fun and man’s love for the dog into one promising platform.

As highlighted in the whitepaper, the Bitcoin Dogs platform taps into Bitcoin’s security, decentralisation and network reliability.

The project launched in mid-February as the first-ever ICO on Bitcoin, and has quickly hit $6.5 million. 

In just over two weeks, the Bitcoin Dogs’ community on X has shot to 121k followers, while the Telegram community has jumped to over 20k members. 

Bitcoin Dogs future outlook

For an outlook for Bitcoin Dogs, one may have to consider what’s happening in the Bitcoin ecosystem.

This week, crypto mining firm Marathon Digital announced its Anduro, a “new programmable layer-two network on Bitcoin”. According to a press release, the multi-chain network is designed to support a new era of innovation on Bitcoin.

Experts have noted that the Bitcoin network could support a $500 billion ecosystem across digital collectibles, GameFi and DeFi. As the NFTs, decentralised finance (DeFi) and gaming ecosystems on Bitcoin take off, one of the projects to watch out for will be Bitcoin Dogs. 

Also notable is the outlook for Bitcoin.

Bitcoin price surged to highs of $64k, hitting the multi-year high amid spot Bitcoin ETFs frenzy and the Bitcoin halving sentiment. While prices are around $61k and could revisit support below the $60k mark, analysts have forecast BTC price could explode past its previous bull market peak. 

Bitcoin Dogs could benefit from these factors and see the native token’s price surge post launch.

Currently, 0DOG is priced at $0.0312 and there are just 11 more days before the ICO ends on March 15.
