3 min readFeb 24, 2023


We are thrilled to announce the release of our latest product, UniSat Wallet (https://unisat.io), which is now available for public beta testing!

UniSat Wallet (https://unisat.io) is the world’s first open-source browser extension wallet designed specifically for Ordinal Bitcoin NFTs.


Our wallet comes packed with several unique and significant features that set us apart from the competition. Here are some of the key highlights:

  • Store and transfer your NFTs in a non-custodial wallet, ensuring maximum security and peace of mind.
  • See unconfirmed NFTs immediately, which is a feature that the existing wallets lack.
  • Inscribe (mint) on-the-fly without running a full node, making it quick and easy to create new NFTs without any hassle.
  • Enjoy ultra-low inscribing costs that are typically 70%~80% lower than other wallets.
  • UniSat Wallet is 100% open-source, with an actively maintained public repository for auditing.


Why should I use UniSat Wallet when there are many existing wallets that support Ordinals NFTs?

While there are several wallets that support Ordinal NFTs, many of them have significant limitations. For instance, the official wallet (ordinals.com) requires you to run a full node, which can be quite heavyweight. The ordinals wallet (@ordinalswallet) supports storing NFTs, but it doesn’t support transferring them.

In contrast, UniSat Wallet is a lightweight browser extension wallet that boots in seconds. It enables you to receive, store, and send NFTs just like any typical Bitcoin transaction. With UniSat Wallet, you can enjoy a seamless and hassle-free experience.

Why is it important to see unconfirmed NFTs immediately?

UniSat Wallet allows you to view unconfirmed NFTs immediately by showing the most recent inscribed NFTs in the mempool. This feature enables you to check the details of your NFTs before they get mined into blocks. You can even replace-by-fee to override the old NFT to correct any errors if necessary.

It’s worth noting that all existing wallets and explorers that support Ordinal NFTs don’t support showing unconfirmed NFTs at this time. This makes users wait longer to see their creations, which can be frustrating.

Does UniSat Wallet know my private key? How can I trust you?

No, UniSat Wallet does not store your private key on its servers. Your private key is kept on the client-side, just like what happens in MetaMask. You can be confident that your private key is secure and well-protected.

Moreover, the entire process logic of UniSat Wallet can be verified in the publicly distributed wallet source-code, which is available on our Github repository ([https://github.com/unisat-wallet/extension](https://github.com/unisat-wallet/extension)). UniSat Wallet is a non-custodial wallet, and you should save your mnemonics in a safe place of your own choosing.

We invite you to try UniSat Wallet today and experience the convenience and security of our groundbreaking wallet for yourself.

UniSat Wallet is being actively improved and the built-in inscribing service is coming in a few days.
