If you’ve been following our social media posts and articles even a little bit over the past year, you know that we’ve spent a lot of time talking about best security practices. By now, we hope that you are using the most secure wallet option available to you, that you have transitioned from unsafe software methods if you were using them, and that you are aware of the most common preventable user errors so you can avoid them.
We have also spoken quite a bit about the importance and benefits of decentralization. MEW is a client-side, non-custodial wallet — which means your key management is already decentralized, controlled only by you. With MEW, you can also make your swaps decentralized by using integrated exchanges like Kyber and Changelly, take advantage of DeFi with Multi-Collateral MakerDAO, and use decentralized apps with MEW CX.
Finally, if you haven’t already, the most important thing you can do to make your wallet even more secure, help crypto adoption, and support the development of a decentralized internet is to get a decentralized domain which can also serve as a name for your wallet. The ENS manager in MEW has been around for a while, and it will take you literally two minutes to get a .eth domain that you can use across multiple blockchains. And, starting today, MEW will also support .crypto domains from Unstoppable Domains, an awesome blockchain-agnostic domain service.
Now that both ENS and Unstoppable Domains are offering domains that can be used across various blockchains, you can have the same human-readable address for all your coins. Not only is this convenient, it’s also quite the trend in the Ethereum community! Besides, the advantage of blockchain domains extends far beyond easy wallet addresses. Decentralized domains are the basis for a truly decentralized, uncensorable internet. With a blockchain domain and decentralized storage, only the domain owner can put up or take down their website.
So, no more excuses! Get your multi-coin ENS domain in MEW, or get your .crypto domain from Unstoppable Domains and use it in your MEW wallet. The decentralized future will thank you for it.
