Collection from Japan “Badger Capsule”
The collection “Badger Capsule” from Japan was recorded and released as a full-on-chain NFT on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain using Ordinals.
The “Badger Capsule” is listed on Magic Eden and is ready for purchase with Bitcoin. In the future, we plan to expand to other platforms so that Badger Capsule NFTs can be purchased in a variety of currencies, wallets and payment methods.
Badger Capsule is a memorial collection made in 2021 and was produced mainly by Japanese artists who were active in the early days of NFT.
Ordinals of Badger Capsule is the first attempt to convert vintage NFT into Ordinals and full on-chain, and in the future we plan to work on on-chain of collections such as Memorychain.
An Ordinals-enabled wallet is required to purchase Ordinals, receive NFTs, and store them. In particular, it is recommended to use Xverse Wallet to purchase Ordinals in Magic Eden.

What is Vintage NFT?
Ordinals is a technology that links images and files directly engraved on the Bitcoin blockchain with Bitcoin transaction information. It has attracted attention because full-on-chain NFT can be easily realized on the Bitcoin blockchain, and major NFT operators such as Yuga Labs and Magic Eden have already entered Ordinals.
Since the beginning of this year, Ordinals has attracted a great deal of attention to NFTs on Bitcoin, and interest in “vintage NFTs”, which contributed to the establishment of the concept of early NFTs, is also increasing.
Vintage NFT is a collective term for early NFT projects and collections that helped establish the NFT concept, and was rediscovered among some avid collectors during the 2021 NFT boom. Collectors of vintage NFTs are also interested in Ordinals NFTs, and there is a move to technically link the two areas.
Japan played an important role in the early days of NFTs from 2014 to 2017, with four of the earliest vintage NFT collections issued at that time originating in Japan. Recently, as the number of users of “Counterparty”, a token platform on the Bitcoin chain, has decreased, its recognition has been declining.
In May 2022, the portal site “Rare Japanese NFTs”, which summarizes past historical works, was renewed, mainly by members who were involved in Japan’s early vintage NFTs.
This site aims to preserve the history of NFTs and establish Japanese vintage NFTs worldwide. We hope that the understanding of past bitcoin NFTs as a whole will increase, and that NFTs will serve as an opportunity to spread interest in bitcoin itself and related technologies and projects.
