Decrypt’s Art, Fashion, and Entertainment Hub.
Ethereum wallet MyEtherWallet (MEW) has added support for Unstoppable Domain’s human readable addresses. These turn complex crypto addresses into simple names (like using email addresses) making it much easier to send Ethereum around.
According to a press release, this collaboration will introduce Unstoppable Domains’ users to MEW’s built-in features such as cryptocurrency swaps, non-fungible token management and a MakerDAO decentralized finance portal.
"Blockchain domains enhance the payment experience for cryptocurrency users. Our collaboration with MEW allows users to replace complicated crypto addresses with human-readable names. This is an important step towards onboarding the next billion people into cryptocurrency."
Thanks to this partnership, users will be able to share Ethereum public wallets without using complicated blockchain addresses, helping them to avoid the risk of making a mistake along the way. Instead, they can use unique yet short addresses like “name.crypto” to send or receive Ethereum
The “.crypto” domains are touted as “uncensorable” websites on Ethereum, not governed by and not requiring approval from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This means they can’t be taken down by domain hosting companies, unlike regular websites.
Unlike blockchain name services that only offer domains on a single blockchain, Unstoppable Domains is blockchain agnostic, allowing its users to send or receive over 50 different cryptocurrencies. Users also retain full control over their domains via a private key and can easily transfer the ownership if needed.
