About UniSat Wallet
UniSat Wallet is a wallet that can store and manage BRC-20 standard tokens. BRC-20 is the first token standard that can be used on the Bitcoin blockchain and is currently attracting attention. The service also supports BRC-721 standard tokens. UniSat Wallet’s strength is its user-friendly interface, and it can also be installed as a Google Chrome extension. In addition, UniSat developed a DEX on Onchain that specializes in BRC20 transactions, which received a great response on sites such as X (formerly Twitter).

The team building UniSat is Segwit. These are contributors involved in major technologies and updates of the Bitcoin ecosystem, such as Lightning Network and Taproot. Although we are a team of only six people, we release a variety of high-quality products on a monthly basis in response to market changes and demand. Their source of energy is to evolve Bitcoin from “digital gold” to the next stage. Ordinals and BRC20 have proven that Segwit/Taproot makes it possible to generate various asset applications on Onchain. The team at UniSat is an expression of our excitement for teams that will grow the Bitcoin blockchain into something even more organic and versatile.

I think Bitcoin Inscription has succeeded in bringing new innovation to Bitcoin and expanding its potential uses, which could lead to a larger narrative. And Unistat, a BRC20 and Ordinal NFT encrypted wallet, has become an important participant and leader in BTC innovation. Mr. Matsumoto, a young capitalist at Skyland Ventures, worked tenaciously on deal sourcing, and I think he had the chance to witness this first page in the history of crypto. I would like to thank him for his efforts and send my best wishes.

In response to the boom in Ordinals-based tokens and NFTs, UniSat was released quickly and established a significant market share. New features such as the marketplace and BRC20-swap continue to be added, and their rapid response and development capabilities are very impressive. I look forward to UniSat continuing to promote financial inclusion with its unique perspective and execution capabilities.
