Select an Ordinal: When you find an ordinal that you wish to purchase, click on it to view more details, such as the price and transaction fees.

Upon clicking on Buy, you will be able to proceed to confirm the transaction.

Check Your Wallet: Return to your Xverse Wallet to confirm that the ordinal has been added to your holdings.

Once your transaction is successfully mined you will be able to see the Ordinals being transferred to your wallet! Congrats on your first Ordinals.
