receiving inscriptions and ordinals with sparrow wallet

Hi, I’m running a full bitcoin node in AWS but it’s quite costly with IOPS 64k on a 1TB drive. After my inscription project, I was thinking of terminating the instance. Instead of sending the inscriptions to my Sparrow, can I not simply import the seed phrase and skip that step entirely? Wasn’t sure if ORD wallet did anything fundamentally different that would prohibit this. Sorry of question sounds ignorant but it would save a lot of time. Thanks in advance.

@0xRabbidfly yes you can import the ord wallet into Sparrow, just follow the guide but instead of generating a new BIP39 seed phrase use your existing seed phrase from ord.

I would recommend the first step after that to be to label all of your UTXO's so you know which ones are the inscriptions, and Freeze them.

Love you windsok for the fast response. You saved me hours of sending inscriptions and managing those UTXOs!! Cheers mate

I import Sparrow wallet to ord: ord --wallet sparrow wallet restore ....
However, there are no any inscriptions shown up when I run ord --wallet sparrow wallet inscripitions.
I then run bitcoin-cli -rpcwallet=sparrow rescanblockchain 767430 to trigger a rescan.
But still see an empty array output by running ord --wallet sparrow wallet inscripitions.
Any ideas?

Do you see any inscriptions in Sparrow, any addresses with 10,000sats or less? If you don’t then you may not have any inscriptions in that wallet. I would suggest to join the ordinals discord to get help.

no longer see UTXOs, because when i launch Sparrow i see the following error

tried connecting to different services, but to no avail - the app looks like it is cycling through them
i can also see from the log that many transactions are found, but a bunch are failing

however, in my ORD wallet, the inscriptions that i own are there (ord wallet inscriptions)

btw, i fixed this by removing all .db files for wallets, relaunching sparrow and entering the seed phrase to import the wallet
it seems that db management has some bugs

Confirmed, the inscriptions are stored in my Sparrow wallet. I'll head over to the Discord community for assistance. Thanks for your response.

@ontheclock247 In ordinal theory sats flow on a first-in first-out basis, so the first sat in the input UTXO will be delivered to the first sat of the first output UTXO, fees are always last. So if your inscription is on the first sat of the inscription UTXO, and this is a 1 input 1 output transaction it should be safe to send as Sparrow would not allow you to construct a transaction which spends entirely to fees. Hope that makes sense.

Thank you so much!

Hi,

thanks so much for this guide. I did everything as you said, and used ordinalsbot.io to send me my first inscription. The transaction is validated, everything went through, but it does not show in my Sparrow Wallet (neither in the Bitcoin transactions tab, nor in the UTXO tab). Can you help me solve this issue please? Much appreciated!!

After conducting some research, I have discovered that the issue at hand is that my Sparrow Wallet utilizes a passphrase, which is currently not supported by ord.

I dont understand. What are the implications of this? I made the Sparrow wallet using the exact same process outlined above. The blockchain explorer shows that this wallet is holding 0.0003785 SATS, which is the inscription I guess. It just doesnt show up in the Sparrow App. What can I do to solve this?

When sending an inscription, the fungible amount used as a fee must be in the same wallet or in another wallet?

Very that the wallet address you see in the explorer is in sparrow.

your sparrow wallet may be disconnect. Check on the bottom right to make sure the toggle is on.

if that doesn’t work try sparrow on a different computer

It worked, toggle was turned off... Thank you very much, greatly appreciated!

Nice post. A lot of stuff. Is it possible and safe to send an inscription when two inscriptions share the same (taproot) address?

Hello @windsok , thank you for that great guide! Can i ask a question?
I've send two Ordinals in a same address, and now i have a "!" sign next to each transaction (UTXO). As i understand this will not be a problem, but maybe i will need to learn what exactly i am doing before trying to move anything. My question is about fees. From where will come the sats for the fees for transaction? How i will specify from where the fee should be paid?

Hi
Can anybody help?
I have bitmap on my ledger and I should send it to unisat wallet, through sparrow wallet, but the UTXO associated with that bitmap in sparrow doesn't have enough value to cover transation fee. What can I do? I read something about combining some btc into a btc utxo, but I don't know how to perform it.
