How Can You Use Your Web3 Domain?
While sending and receiving crypto is among the most common uses for Web3 domains, it’s not the only benefit. With Unstoppable Domains, you can use your digital identity for Web3 to log in to apps, games, metaverses, send private emails, and so much more.
Human-readable payment address
You can replace your cryptocurrency addresses with a human-readable name with an Unstoppable Domain. For example, you can use your domain to pay for an NFT or transfer cryptocurrency by typing in a Web3 domain instead of a long, alphanumeric crypto wallet address. With Unstoppable Domains, you can send Bitcoin, Ethereum, and over 300 other crypto tokens without worrying about them going to the wrong address.
Encrypted and private email
Unstoppable Domains email provides you with a way to send emails while maintaining the privacy of your email address. Every Unstoppable Domain comes with a free “@ud.me” address that you connect to your email (Gmail, Outlook, etc.) or with Skiff— an end-to-end encrypted inbox. Any email you send will show it came from your UD email, not your address. Unstoppable uses an email proxy service to exchange messages for your domain’s email address.
You can build your decentralized website using a template or custom design and join the nearly 30 000 websites created by the Unstoppable Domains community! For example, through Unstoppable Domains’ integration with Brave, creators can build decentralized content with a domain they fully own and control. Brave uses the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system.
In Web2, your digital identity is fragmented across various networks and platforms. For example, your Facebook account lets you store your information on Facebook, but your content, connections, engagements, and social graph only follow you to Twitter, TikTok, or anywhere else. Not only does Facebook own “your’’ account and have complete control over it, but they can modify it, suspend it, and even delete it at a whim. Web3 domains powered by Unstoppable are different. You own it — including all the data and information about you.
Readable leaderboard for gaming
Being on the Leaderboard is a valid badge of honor for many gamers. But how could you claim the crown if no one knows you by your crypto address? That’s why we introduced Reverse Resolution, allowing apps, games, and metaverses to display your domain as your gamer tag. For example, we’re working with Snook — the well-loved modernized Snake game — to power their leaderboard, replacing long, complicated wallet addresses with more personal gamer tags.
Social media signaling
Leverage your Web3 domain to signal everyone you know about Web3 on social media!
Unstoppable Domains enable users to log in to DeFi apps using their domain and share profile information, such as email or social media status while maintaining control over personal data. The apps can access the information with user permission without storing it in their database.
Gaming and Metaverse login
People keep asking, “When will the metaverse be here?” but in many ways, it already is. There are thriving communities online between massive multiplayer gaming worlds and metaverses for everything from fashion to education. Using your Unstoppable domain as a single identity across these online realms will help unify our online presence like never before!
Imagine being able to buy websites before they were so popular. That’s why some people purchase Web3 domains today, but numerous people buy them for fun as collectibles. It might be hard to understand if you haven’t tried it for yourself, but getting emotionally connected to your digital items is a real thing!
With your Unstoppable domain, you can showcase a few of your favorite achievements, such as what NFT projects you are involved in or how many domains you have collected. It allows you to enhance your Web3 identity and share your story.
Digital business card
Choose a digital identity card to help you share your information in real life. With a few taps, you can download a custom card featuring your Web3 domain, profile picture, and a link to your domain profile (ex: ud.me/sandy.nft) optimized for your lock screen or watch face. You can easily update your profile picture from the Unstoppable Domains website.
Many people use the brand as a signal for their participation in Web3. Sporting your Unstoppable domain on Twitter and other social media properties shows that you are in a community that is innovative, progressive, and a builder (BUIDL in Web3 lingo).
Get rewarded with Badges for your contributions and achievements along your crypto and Web3 journey. Unstoppable partners can make custom badges to reward their communities, identifying who has helped support them. Were you part of a historic moment in crypto history? Now you can have proof on-chain!
And this is just the beginning. There is far more to come.
