Crypto Twitter has been quick to react to what seems like an historic, if not potentially short-lived, milestone.

An ordinals collection just became the highest volume NFT collection across all chains for the first time,” @LeonidasNFT posted to Twitter. “Don't sleep on Bitcoin,” the account with nearly 70,000 followers added.

Bitcoin Frogs are “10,000 unique frog collectibles minted directly on the Bitcoin Blockchain,” according to the collection's Twitter account. On Discord, the collection is described as a “free-to-mint” project meant to “encourage adoption of Ordinals.”
