According to tweets from Magic Eden, the Bitcoin NFT Marketplace, fans are encouraged to drop Runestone-themed designs on Monday, suggesting that the Runestone airdrop is almost here.

“I adore this and am excited to see what others come up with! The pseudonymous NFT historian Leonidas said, “Feel free to remix, et cetera, as both the Runestone parent and child art are [Creative Commons licensed].


Runestone inscriptions will be airdropped to 112,383 wallets that meet the requirements by the Leonidas-led Bitcoin Ordinals project.

Holding at least three inscriptions is required by the Runestone airdrop, but inscriptions with file types beginning with “text/plain” or “application/JSON” are not allowed.

Ever since the project was first revealed last month, there has been a growing buzz about Runestones.


Leonidas told Decrypt, “People are using AR to drop Runestones all over the world, and then they are tweeting pictures and videos of it.” She also mentioned that anyone is free to adapt Runestone parent and child art under a Creative Commons license. “IP isn’t very Bitcoin; it’s not very cypherpunk because you are putting nation-states right into the equation.”

“I’m hoping people can be a little more creative than that, but shirts and hats are possible,” he continued.

At a massive 3.97 MB, the Runestone project mined what is purported to be the largest Ordinals inscription transaction on the Bitcoin blockchain over the weekend.

In contrast, one Bitcoin block has a size of 1 MB.

“Are you prepared to become stoned?” Sunday, Leonidas tweeted.

Leonidas clarified that the 3.97 MB project for inscription 63,140,674 was finished in cooperation with the bitcoin mining company Marathon Digital and Ordinals Bot. It used two blocks on the Bitcoin network to create the parent and child Ordinals inscriptions.

In addition to mining the two largest inscriptions in the two largest transactions in the two largest blocks in Bitcoin history, “Runestone is the largest Ordinals airdrop ever,” according to Leonidas.

Leonidas reiterated that only a chosen few would be able to obtain the Runestone airdrop, even though he did not say when it would occur.

Leonidas stated on Twitter that “the only way to have been eligible for a Runestone was to show up in the first year of Ordinals when nobody believed in this movement.” Should you receive one, it’s because you merited it. Put it on as a symbol of your honor.

He declared, “Airdrop farmers are out of luck.”CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.

We thankyou for the on-going support our readers have bestowed monetarily. If you have not considered supporting CryptoCaster, if you can, please consider supporting us just once from $1 or more of Bitcoin (satoshi) or Eth, and better yet, support us every month with a little more.
