Bitcoin Runes are shaking the very foundations of the Bitcoin blockchain, turning heads and sending transaction fees blasting through the roof to a staggering $127.97 average. Want in before they hit stratospheric prices? Listen closely.

The magic began on April 20, a date Runes creator Casey Rodarmor is calling Bitcoin’s “second season.”

With the halving event coinciding, Runes launched a new fungible token standard on Bitcoin.

Building on the foundations laid by the Bitcoin ordinals protocol, Runes enables the minting of fungible tokens (aka shitcoins and memecoins), significantly broadening Bitcoin’s appeal.

The new token standard is igniting fires in the eyes of Venture Capitalists and crypto die-hards about the potential for a decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem built around Bitcoin.

Discussions are also underway about developing Layer 2 solutions to further enhance Bitcoin’s scalability and functionality.

Bitcoin Runes isn’t just big—it’s a ground-floor invite to the next Ordinals-like gold rush. Here are the coins to look for.

The numbers speak volumes: nearly 8,000 rune projects are out now, clocking in over a million transactions.

The Bottom Line – Unlock Huge Potential With Bitcoin Runes

Bitcoin is signaling long-term bullish sentiment but isn’t making any major moves – suggesting markets will shift to altcoins in Q2 2024.

Both SMAs (simple moving averages for 20-day and 200-day) are trailing below the price, which in trader speak, means the near-term and long-term parties have been bullish.

Keep your eye on the latest new token standard as the next major catalyst for a bull market; they could reach a $1 billion market cap by week’s end.
