New | .crypto domains now on imToken
Unstoppable Domains are now on imToken: Buy, send & receive funds to any .crypto and .zil domain
What is .crypto?
.crypto is a new kind of domain. A domain, which unstoppably links to your Ethereum and Zilliqa accounts.
Generally, a domain defines the owner of a web address (.com, .org, .gov, .net, etc.). Unlike regular domains, blockchain domains store the records on the blockchain and their main purpose is to:
- Simplify crypto payments, and
- Build uncensorable websites
How does that help me?
The current internet is full of gatekeepers who control our behavior, and who lock us in and out of our digital lives: The big companies hold your money, email and web addresses.
Now, .crypto was built to give freedom back to you, the users.
Owning a .crypto domain, you can decide what to publish and what transactions you engage in on the internet. No company or 3rd party, including Unstoppable Domains, can take away your domain.
With the latest update, Unstoppable Domains’ .crypto domains are finally available on imToken. Open imToken to send a transaction or get your own domain in the imToken DApp Browser or on Unstoppable Domains’ website.
Who is Unstoppable Domains?
Unstoppable Domains is a San Francisco-based company building domains on blockchains. The company is backed by Draper Associates and Boost VC and has received grants from the Ethereum Foundation and the Zilliqa Foundation.
