• Interest in BRC-20 tokens has skyrocketed, increasing their market value by 682%.
• The BRC-20 standard is different from the ERC-20 standard as it lacks the ability to interact with smart contracts.
• Crypto lender Celsius Network is facing allegations of poor record-keeping in its corporate structure.

Skyrocketing Interest in BRC-20 Tokens

The latest price moves in crypto markets have seen a surge in interest for “Bitcoin Request for Comment,” or BRC-20, tokens built with Ordinals and stored on the Bitcoin base chain. As of writing, the combined market cap of more than 8,800 BRC-20 tokens was $137 million, an increase of 682% from $17.5 million seen a week ago, according to data tracked by Ordspace. The pseudonymous creator Domo created the token standard in early March to facilitate the issue and transfer of fungible tokens on the Bitcoin blockchain. This invention came shortly after Ordinals Protocol went live, allowing users to inscribe digital art references into small transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Differences between BRC-20 and ERC-20 Standards

It is important to note that while the name “BRC” may sound like “ERC” (the popular Ethereum token standard), these are two very different standards used for different purposes. The ERC-20 standard allows tokens to interact with smart contracts whereas BCR does not – this is due to its use solely within the Bitcoin network versus Ethereum’s network.

Celsius Network Facing Allegations

Crypto lender Celsius Network has been accused of attempting to mingle its U.K and U.S entities as court filings allege that distinction between them was a “sham”. This allegation comes as customers are pitted against Series B investors in a court fight against what is said to be poor record keeping when it comes to corporate structure maintenance by Celsius Network Limited which had been warned earlier this year about ceasing operations by U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). In 2021, a limited liability company (LLC) was set up in Delaware seeking asset transfers through financial transactions from then on out that have caused controversy over their legitimacy since then .
