Hello friends it's been 2-3 days I haven't posted anything about crypto/blockchain technologies. But today we're going to discuss about a very well known blockchain service called 'Ethereum Name System (ENS)'.
So in this article we'll discuss what is ENS how it works and where it comes from. So let's dive in !!
What Is ENS ?
Well if you are reading this article then it means you're on read cash and if you're on read cash then you should know BCH. In order to transfer your BCH in other wallet you need BCH address, do you remember it ? I think you didn't remember it, actually no one can it's really long and difficult to remember.
ENS solves that issue by linking all the information to the one specific, simple and human readable name. ENS system is a service built on Ethereum network which simplifies the complicated things like you can send ETH or other ERC-20 tokens to 'ashma.eth' instead of my ETH wallet address which looks like '829hfjs7480...'
Who Invented ENS ?
The initial development of ENS was lead by the Nick Johnson and Alex Van de Sande of the very well known Ethereum Foundation.
Do You Know ? 💡💡
You can register emojis instead of actual names for which means you can accept ETH or other ERC-20 tokens on 🙏🙏🙏.eth
You can register your emoji domain on ethmojis.com
What's Special ?
As I already mentioned that ENS is built on Ethereum network using smart contracts, it's very secure, decentralised and censorship resistant than traditional Internet's Domain Naming Service (DNS) The main team behind ENS thinks that DNS (domains) are the important & fundamental component of Internet which should be open source, decentralised, community driven and Not-for-profit.
Technically ENS can use Ethereum ecosystem which makes it highly programmable and interactive, which means it can be used in dApps developed over Ethereum network.
Future Of ENS
Ethereum Naming System is not just limited to .eth extension it's just a one top level extension, ENS is planning to integrate it with traditional DNS system which will bring more 1000+ high level domain extensions to ENS. Such as instead of 'readcash.eth' they can use 'readcash.org' and integrate it in here !!
So guys this is it, you can register your own ENS domain now using metamask & visit manager.ens.domains
