Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is a blockchain equivalent of Domain Name System (DNS), but with more uses. It is a distributed, open, and extensible naming system based on the Ethereum blockchain.
Here are some advantages of creating and using an ENS:
- You can create a personalized and straightforward ETH wallet address
- You can use it to store all of your addresses and receive any cryptocurrency, token, or NFT
- You can also launch your own decentralised websites with ENS
I created my own ENS today → 'nidhi.eth'!
Here's an explanation of the process in 5 steps: 👇
Go to apps.ens.domains
Type the .eth name you want and check it's availability
Click the register button to complete the process. A MetaMask confirmation will be asked.
It will take a few minutes for the transaction to be completed.
Link your Ethereum address to your domain name, by setting up the resolver. Click on Use Public Resolver.
Set a reverse name lookup by clicking Reverse Record. Select your ENS name and save.
Add your BTC and ETH addresses in 'Add/Edit Records'
It's a good time to own a crypto domain name, if you haven't already :)
