Get ready for an exciting update in the world of decentralized domain names! The Ethereum Name Service, or ENS, is about to level up with Layer 2 interoperability. In simpler terms, they're bringing together the power of ENS domains with off-chain solutions like Arbitrum and Optimism, making domain name registrations and transactions faster, cheaper, and more accessible for everyone!
ENS Labs, the brilliant minds behind this innovation, have partnered with top-notch service providers like cb.id, Lens Protocol, and OptiNames to bring off-chain resolvers into the mix. And that's not all! They're teaming up with web-integrated domain name TLDs like .art and .box for seamless integration, allowing you to register browser-supported names through ENS.
But here's where it gets even more exciting: for the first time ever, DNS names can be traded as NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain! Imagine owning a unique piece of the internet.
And the journey doesn't stop there. In their upcoming roadmap release, ENS Labs is introducing a game-changing feature: "gasless" DNS names. Say goodbye to transaction costs and hello to a more accessible web. This upgrade, set to launch in the third quarter, will make it easier than ever for traditional internet users to dive into the ENS ecosystem and experience the power of Ethereum and crypto.
The founder and lead developer of ENS, Nick Johnson, expressed his vision, stating, "Their goal is to establish ENS names as the norm for decentralized digital identity in Web3." With expanded Layer 2 interoperability and gasless DNS names, they're taking a giant leap towards achieving that goal.
