OnChainMonkey Migrating to Bitcoin
Logan Hitchcock

OnChainMonkey (OCM) is migrating its entire digital art collection from Ethereum to Bitcoin Ordinals, incurring a hefty $1 million migration fee.

The Deets

  • Migration Costs: The project paid over $1 million in Bitcoin fees for the migration.
  • DAO Approval: A quorum of 2,000 votes backed the move within 24 hours.
  • Ethereum Exit: The migration includes burning existing Ethereum NFTs.
  • Market Timing: The decision comes amid a cool-off in the Ordinals market.

The Bulk

OnChainMonkey, founded by Metagood, announced its bold move to migrate its entire digital art collection from Ethereum to Bitcoin Ordinals. 

The migration process isn't just a click of a button; it comes at a substantial cost. OnChainMonkey forked over more than $1 million in Bitcoin fees to make this move. This amount doesn't only cover the technical costs but also includes the expense for burning the existing Ethereum NFTs, rendering them non-tradable.

Backing this massive shift is the project's DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), which within 24 hours gathered more than 2,000 votes in favor of the move.

Interestingly, this all comes at a time when the Ordinals market has seen a significant cool-down, which makes this transition a potential precursor for the market's next big wave. Bitcoin ranks seventh in overall blockchain trading volume over the last month according to data from CryptoSlam. 

πŸ“Š By the Numbers

The DAO proposal for migration saw 2,000 votes within 24 hours, and 99% voted in favor of the move to Bitcoin.

OnChainMonkey Migrating to Bitcoin
OCM Dimensions Changing Bitcoin NFTs
Logan Hitchcock

Metagood and OnChainMonkey leveraged Bitcoin Ordinals to launch OCM Dimensions yesterday, revolutionizing the NFT movement on the Bitcoin blockchain. 

The Deets

  • OCM Dimensions pioneered recursion, composability, and efficient block space usage on Bitcoin.
  • It is one of the first parent-child collections with on-chain provenance.
  • The collection achieved many industry firsts, including an on-chain reveal after minting.
  • The art is high-definition, 3D, animated, and interactive, rendering directly from Bitcoin inscriptions.

The Bulk

Founded OGs of the crypto space, Metagood and the team behind OnChainMonkey have been deeply invested in Bitcoin technology, understanding the possibilites for Ordinals and NFTs. Their latest endeavor, OCM Dimensions, brings to life an art collection of unprecedented quality and innovative mechanics on the Bitcoin blockchain.

OCM Dimensions breaks the mold with high-resolution, 3D animated art that dynamically scales to any display size. This quality is achieved with a file size of under 1 kilobyte per inscription, an extraordinary accomplishment given the complexity and quality of the art.

Dimensions is notable not only for its art but also for its pioneering technical feats on Bitcoin. It utilizes parent-child provenance, generative coding, recursion, and composability to create intricate and rich art while optimizing the use of Bitcoin's block space.

The collection is a testament to the possibilities that Bitcoin Ordinals open for securing digital artifacts on the Bitcoin blockchain, hinting at a digital version of the Great Library of Alexandria. But, as with all precious resources, Bitcoin's block space is finite, pushing developers and creators to optimize its usage and create digital "skyscrapers."

 πŸ“Š By the Numbers

OCM Dimensions sold out its 300 piece collection in just minutes. The first secondary sale registered at more than 1 BTC, more than $26,000. 

❗Why It Matters

OCM Dimensions’ new approach to creating and presenting NFTs on Bitcoin showcases the untapped potential of Bitcoin Ordinals and may lead to more unique, boundary pushing collections on the blockchain...and not just copy paste animal derivatives.

OnChainMonkey Releases the Full OCM Dimensions 300 List
Julian Son

OnChainMonkey tweeted the link to a Google Sheet with a list of the 300 ordinal addresses selected for the Dimensions launch.

The Deets

  • About half of the 300 were announced on Twitter, but now the rest have been revealed.
  • There were more than 6,000 applications, and the selectivity rate was less than 5%.
  • There are an additional 2,000 OCM Dimensions exclusively reserved for OCM holders.
  • Owning an OCM set (OCM Genesis + K1 + K2) puts you in Tier 2 and gives you a higher chance to mint one of the remaining 2,000 Dimensions.

🎬 Take Action

If you applied, you can check if your BTC Ordinals wallet address is in the OCM Dimensions 300 List Google Sheet.

OnChainMonkey Releases the Full OCM Dimensions 300 List
OnChainMonkey Reschedules Dimensions Launch to June 15
Julian Son

OnChainMonkey announced that the upcoming OCM Dimensions launch is delayed until June 15.

The Deets

  • OCM Dimensions was originally slated to launch on May 31
  • The mint date has been moved to June 15
  • The project cited "being so early and factors beyond our control" as reasons for the delay

❗ Why It Matters

OnChainMonkey's new high-end generative art collection on the Bitcoin blockchain is highly anticipated, with over 6,000 collectors applying (and many of them presumably funding their Bitcoin wallet with 0.08 BTC). A little over half of the 300 Mint List has been announced in recent days, with many notable names in the community among those accepted, including a mix of Ordinals enthusiasts, NFT whales, and loyal OCM holders.

OnChainMonkey Reschedules Dimensions Launch to June 15
OCM Dimensions Mint List Application Open Until May 24th
Julian Son

OnChainMonkey detailed how to improve the likelihood of getting on the !RISE List to buy one of the first 300 OCM Dimensions, a 3D generative art collection of high-end digital assets on Bitcoin that are fully inscribed on-chain.

The Details

  • The application window closes on May 24th.
  • Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, so applying earlier increases your chances of acceptance.
  • Additionally, funding your wallet with 0.08 BTC (~$2,300 USD) ahead of time will also increase your likelihood of being selected.

❗ Why It Matters

The first 300 Dimensions are a special sub-collection that is available to an exclusive !RISE List, and the 300 will also have the lowest ID numbers in the collection (#1-300). They will have Genesis DNA and traits based on OCM Genesis #9501-9800, which are unreleased and part of Metagood’s private collection.

Where OCM holders fall on the Tier List will be a large determinant, but applying early and funding a BTC wallet will help as well.

OCM Dimensions Mint List Application Open Until May 24th
OCM Revises Tier System To Prioritize Super Set Collectors
Julian Son

Ahead of the OCM Dimensions mint at the end of the month, OnChain Monkey upgraded the Tier System to prioritize Super Set collectors.

❗ Why It Matters

For OCM holders, the tier system will determine your chances of getting OCM Dimensions as well as future OCM collections. It's a welcome and deserved upgrade for Super Set holders, but it also probably won't affect all that many given the high threshold for entry to that tier.

The Details

  • A Super Set = 20x OCM Sets = Any 20x Genesis + Any 20x Karma 1 + Any 20x Karma 2.
  • Tier 1 is OCM's Apex membership, and this Tier also consists of Celestials and holders of a Celestial Karma or a Celestial Cake.
  • Tier 1 members will be airdropped an Ethereum NFT that will be burnable for OCM Dimensions.

OnChainMonkey announced Dimensions, a new animated 3D collection on Bitcoin available exclusively to OCM holders.

All OCM members (including Karma) will have a chance to access the upcoming launch of Dimensions, which the project describes as "a significant leap forward in using Ordinals to inscribe high-end art on #BTC."

The chance to gain access is determined proportionally through OCM's tier system.

RISE With OCM PFP for More Bananas
Julian Son

For the next month, using an OnChainMonkey Genesis or Karma as your PFP will give a multiplier on earning Banana tokens when using !RISE on Twitter. This was announced today by the OnChainMonkey Twitter account, with more details available in the Discord.

The Deets

Bananas 🍌, the currency of the OCM Monkeyverse, can be used to purchase allowlist spots to upcoming mints, OCM holder-exclusive merchandise, etc.

From Feb. 14 to Mar. 14, OCM holders can earn a multipler on Banana tokens earned from using !RISE on Twitter.

  • Earn 2x bananas for Karma
  • Earn 6x bananas for Genesis
  • Earn 8x bananas for Celestials

❗ Why It Matters

There are quite a few new holders after the OCM team announced last week that Genesis holders would get a corresponding Ordinal on BTC, so this is a great way for them to get a head start on acquiring bananas 🍌.

In the past, bananas were also used to purchase Early Claim Tickets 🎟 for early Dessert eating and Karma claim access, and they could be relevant for the upcoming collaboration with Alexis André in Q1 2023.

OnChainMonkey is joining the Ordinals movement and making big improvements in the inscription process along the way, according to its official announcement on Twitter.

❗ Why It Matters

Over the last few weeks, we have seen the attention shift from the open edition meta to Ordinals, inscribed "NFTs" on BTC. This afternoon, OnChainMonkey threw its hat into the ring, awarding holders of its genesis collection with a corresponding Ordinal on BTC. 

The Deets

The team at OCM was able to inscribe all 10,000 OCM at a low cost and in one full transaction (similar to its creation) according to the announcement - saving on cost, energy, and most importantly, Bitcoin block space. In addition, they were also able to make it possible to see all 1.3 billion trait possibilities on the Bitcoin blockchain.

"We did it in one inscription, for only a few dollars, saved block space, were more environmentally friendly, and did not disrupt the Bitcoin network."

πŸ“Š By the Numbers

OCM initially teased the announcement in the early morning hours, sending the genesis collection skyrocketing from its price below 1 ETH to near 3 ETH at its peak. The collection has settled around 2.24 ETH at the time of writing, marking a major gain of more than 100 percent on the day.
