Just got your first Web3 domain? Or are you still thinking about buying your first? Well, you came to the right place to learn more!
An Web3 domain is all you need to build your digital identity. It’s safe, secure, and built with YOU in mind.
You can think of an Web3 domain as a web address with ✨superpowers✨ that is 100% owned by you. You control your domain, data, and identity. And your access to Web3 gets easier. The best part—you buy it once and it’s yours for life! Never. Ever. Pay Renewal Fees.
You. Own it. Simple as that.
But wait, what can you actually do with Web3 domains? Glad you asked!
In this article, we’ll dive into 4 use cases of Web3 domains today that allow you to have full control and ownership of your digital identity. We’ll also go into future use cases and functionality that will make you become, well… Unstoppable!
1. Simplify your Crypto Payments
None of us go around today handing out our bank account numbers. So why should we do so in crypto where the account numbers are even longer? Turn all of your complicated crypto wallet addresses into one easy to read username. You can use your Web3 domain as a username that stores all wallet addresses for sending and receiving crypto and NFTs. All you have to do is connect your crypto wallets to your Web3 domain. It’s safe, secure and saves you (and your friends) the hassle of having to copy/paste long strings of numbers and letters.
You and your friends don’t have to worry about accidentally sending crypto payments to the wrong address again.
Currently, a Web3 domain can receive over 275 coins and tokens, with tons more coming soon! Check out the complete list of cryptocurrencies here.
2. Your Name on the Internet
Have you ever signed up to a new site and the username you’ve always used is taken? Now, you have to add a random assortment of numbers or worse, you have to completely change your username. It just doesn’t feel the same, does it? Your name is the cornerstone of your identity in real life, so why not in the digital world as well. A Web3 domain is how you can carry your username everywhere across the digital world. So go flex your Web3 domain as your username on Twitter and make a name for yourself in the digital world!
3. Login with your Web3 Domain
Say goodbye to the days where you create new user accounts and passwords for every single application or website. With your Web3 domain, you can login to both Web2 and Web3 sites and apps seamlessly and safely. Think of your Web3 domain as your single sign-on like Google Login, but better because you truly own it. More importantly, you control your data and can give clear permission for any platform to access it. We are working hard so you can reap the benefits of web3. Unlike other single sign-on solutions, Unstoppable gives you control over which applications have access to your data and only you get to determine what it is used for.
In the future, we plan to launch more superpowers that improve your experience online without compromising your ownership and security. For example, we want to build a simpler signup process where there is a one-time proof of humanity solution, so you don’t have to verify your identity again and again every time you join a defi application or new wallet. Another example is a faster checkout by having the ability to pre-fill your payment and shipping info. We want to do all this while ensuring you have better privacy and control over all your data.
4. Profile Pages
The web has made connecting with people around the world easier, but how do other users know that you aren’t just a fictional online persona? We got you covered…or should we say verified? ✅ With your Web3 domains, create a universal profile page. Connect your Web3 domain to your social media accounts, so your followers can know that it is you across all platforms. With Unstoppable Domains, you can link and verify your Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, Discord, and Telegram accounts to your Web3 domain. This means your followers not only know it’s you, but also can engage with your content on other platforms. If someone doesn’t verify one of their social accounts, the unverified account won’t show up on their Web3 domain, which means you will definitely know this user is the same across the web. And we’ll let you in on a secret. In the future, your Web3 domains will be used for verification on more platforms.
Another way to authenticate yourself is through your NFT avatar. You can connect and verify your NFT avatar to your Web3 domain. Attach your identity to the NFT PFP you want as your face for Web3. That way your followers always know it’s really you.
5. Create and Host Decentralized Websites
By pointing your domain name to a website on a peer-to-peer hosting platform like IPFS, you have the power to create a decentralized, secure website. Because the website does not rely on a centralized server, you are less susceptible to your website going down. To create a website, you can use one of our pre-made templates to start you off. Or if you already created a website, host it on your Web3 domain. You can link an existing IPFS hash or redirect a traditional website to your Web3 domain. And for the NFT lovers, show off your collection by making a gallery-style website to showcase your cool collection like the one below.
