Blockchain Domains Now Accessible By Using Any Web Browser

Blockchain Domains


The Internet is an amazing place where it allows us to share information like it hasn't been, but what if it could also be used to send and receive payments securely? Blockchain domain revolutionaries are aiming to create a new Internet. One in which payments can be done by universally shared and owners have full control over their own domain asset. 


What is Blockchain


Blockchain is a Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) that allows data to be stored globally on thousands of servers while allowing users to see entries in real-time. 


Blockchain is also seen as any cryptocurrency explorer platform, offering cryptocurrency wallets and exchanges such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.  


Blockchain platforms such as Blockchain.com also provides Bitcoin data charts, market information and statistics. 


What Are The Blockchain Domains?


Blockchain Domains are assets that are digital on a blockchain. The domain name system (DNS) is often likened to the address book of the Internet. Just similar to the way we use example.com and other traditional domain names to quickly identify a long string of random numbers, known as the IP addresses, blockchain domains are used majorly to simplify a user’s hexadecimal cryptocurrency wallet address to a human name that is readable.


How Are Blockchain Domains Different Compared To Traditional Domain Names? 


Blockchain may look like domain names, but they are not just an ordinary domain names. To begin with, they are not regulated by ICANN which means that they have their own rules. ICANN is a nonprofit organization that is tasked with the management and the updating namespaces globally while making sure that the network is very operational. To resolve the blockchain websites, users must use the browser extensions or use specific browsers like the Firefox that are integrated with these extensions.


Unstoppable Domains’ .crypto web addresses also make it really easier to send and to receive cryptocurrency


Blockchain domain registry Unstoppable Domains has birthed a new service that expands access to decentralized the websites to anyone that has an internet connection.


Courtesy of an integration with a Cloudflare’s Distributed Web Resolver, the new setup allows  ".crypto web addresses" (of which there are about roughly 500,000) to be viewed from any of the web browser and from any location in any part of the world.


Until now, the only way that was used to access these websites was only via a plug-in or a browser that already offers the native support, such as the Opera.


Blockchain Web Domains


Blockchain web domains is different from their traditional counterparts in that they are purchased for a one off fee, as opposed to running on a subscription basis, and are not overseen by any single, and any centralized authority. 


Unlike the ".com" domain names, for example, which are occupied on a server and managed by an organization called the Verisign, decentralized domains are written onto a public blockchain (which is distributed across all the network participants).


According to an Unstoppable Domains, this system offers a very “new security model”, because domain holders no longer need to start getting worried about a central point of failure that hackers could exploite or lead to downtime.


An additional benefit is that owners of cryptocurrency wallets can make use of their blockchain domain to send and also to receive cryptocurrency without having to remember a long and complex alphanumeric address. If you want to make a crypto payment, the sender would only need to know your readable domain name.
