Yuga Labs earns $16.5M from Bitcoin Ordinals NFT auction

Yuga Labs, a digital art and design studio, has earned $16.5 million in just 24 hours from its inaugural Bitcoin Ordinal NFT collection.

The auction included 288 Bitcoin-based NFTs from the “TwelveFold” collection, with the highest bidder paying just over 7 BTC, or $161,000.

The collection was announced in late February as a limited edition set of 300 generative pieces inscribed on Satoshis on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Yuga Labs faced criticism from the crypto community for the way it conducted the auction, with some pointing out flaws in the process.

The collection includes 300 pieces, out of which 288 were auctioned off. The successful bidders will receive their inscriptions within a week, while unsuccessful bids will be refunded within 24 hours.
