We’re thrilled to share that we’re working with Web3 neo-banking platform hi to provide millions of hi users with a free .hi branded Web3 domain powered by Unstoppable. In addition, hi’s silver-tier users will be able to claim a custom NFT Debit Mastercard showcasing their .hi domain and NFT profile picture—allowing them to pay with crypto and fiat currencies at more than 90 million merchants worldwide and enjoy 5% in Card Spend Rewards.
Branded Web3 domains like smriti.hi provide an identity for Web3 that can be used to manage payments, send crypto, and log in seamlessly to apps, games and metaverses. Free .hi domains will match your hi username – for example, if you have the hi username ‘sam’, you’ll be able to claim the sam.hi domain. Unstoppable domain holders are entitled to the corresponding nickname on the hi platform. The .hi domains will be exclusively available to verified hi users who have passed KYC checks.
“Exploring new ways of expressing and managing your identity has been a key priority on the hi roadmap since day one,” said Sean Rach, Co-Founder of hi. “Within the next few weeks, members of the hi community can look forward to building out their .hi identities and accessing exciting new functionality in the hi app, powered by Unstoppable Domains.”
Eligible members within hi’s community can claim their .hi domain powered by Unstoppable Domains via the hi app. Once claimed, they’ll be able to use their .hi domain name to send and receive assets directly within the hi app or from any of the 100+ wallets supported by Unstoppable Domains – along with more than 600 Unstoppable integrations. To get started, simply:
- Download the hi app
- Create a free account, and enter “UnstoppableDomains” for your invite nickname
- Verify your identity
- Claim or change your hi nickname, which will be used as your branded hi domain
“Our partnership with hi will help us bridge the gap between Web2 and Web3,” said Sandy Carter, SVP and Channel Chief at Unstoppable Domains. “Everyone deserves to own their digital identity, and we’re excited to introduce the new .hi domains and NFT Debit Mastercard that make it easy for people to start their Web3 journey with hi.”
Since 2021, hi has been building the world’s most user-friendly and functional app for crypto and fiat by combining the power of Web3 domains with a next-generation digital banking platform. Both Unstoppable Domains and hi have partnered with Polygon—to date, more than 2.6 million Unstoppable domains have been minted on the Polygon blockchain with Unstoppable covering all gas fees for transactions that take place on Polygon.
To celebrate the partnership, hi and Unstoppable will issue a limited-edition NFT that eligible members of hi’s core community can claim for free to customize their NFT Debit Mastercard starting in 2023.
