🐌BTC Slugs

Discover the fabled nudibranch sliding onto your nodes.


The first volume of 12, is the feisty Nudibranch (sea slugs) or BTC Slugs as they're known. Did you know that there are over 3000 different species of these incredibly diverse invertebrates across the entire globe?

These resilient sea creatures can be found anywhere from the icy polar caps, down to the tropics of the Bahamas, thriving in both shallow waters and the depths of the ocean floor. There's not a shore on earth that the nudibranch doesn't call home. If you've been to a beach lately, then you ventured into their habitat. And now, they've ventured into ours!

Cartoonist "Steven J". originally designed these slugs as one of the lead characters of a snarky comic strip, so they definitely boast some pizzazz and spice! Being so small, yet strong enough to live in any body of water gives them a bit of a chip on their shoulder...definitely a bit of Hasbulla vibes going on here.

As ordinals, these guys are completely unique and unlike anything you've seen thus far. The rendered supply of 4k was thoughtfully trimmed down to 3333, removing some of the color ways, in order to meet the supply cap and curate the best collection of stylings.


The BTC Slugs' trait class is also pretty beefy, with over 240 unique traits, from antennae, body type, butt feathers, mouths & more. Their accessories are also uncommon; rather than your typical hoodies, pipes, and hats, the BTC Slugs sport things like unicorn floaties, boxing gloves, and gopro snorkel masks, with some grails rocking Lasers, Rubies, and Diamonds on their antennae. Check out the rarity index below.

Rune Hunting! - ᛊᛚᚢᚷ

Aside from the original artwork, the BTCSlugs are unique among ordinals in another way - they hunt runes!

Over half of the BTCSlugs have certain traits and accessories that qualify them for fixed allocations of our forthcoming rune! The Runestone protocol, designed by the creator of Ordinals, is a new fungible token standard coming to Bitcoin, and going live at the halving block - 840000. NiftySats will launch our own rune, and Slug holders will be airdropped their allocations according the chart here.

Mint Details

The whitelist for BTC Slugs was over allocated by 121 above the 3333 supply, with 3454 free mints approved. But those wallets only minted a third of the supply, leaving 2201 Slugs up for grabs by the public. The remainder was minted out on OrdinalsBot.com, for just 0.0004 BTC ($20).

View the archived WL below to check the wallets that were approved for the free mint. Only 1132 Slugs of the available 3333 were claimed by the biggest brains among this list, while the others will wallow in regret until the end of time. 🙃 WL Checker: (alphabetical order)
