I was chatting with a Chiropractor friend yesterday about domain names. He has been into cryptocurrency trading for several years, and we regularly chat about that despite the fact that my knowledge is generally limited to what I read on my Twitter feed.
Yesterday, my friend asked me about .ETH domain names, and admittedly, I did not know much. He mentioned that he tried to secure one but the gas fee was outrageous. I told him I know very little about the topic beyond the fact that .ETH is not governed by ICANN and you couldn’t easily access a .ETH website. I typed in nic.eth on my phone to show him what I meant, and it returned a Google search rather than a website or error page.
I reiterated that I don’t know much about blockchain domain names and felt badly that I couldn’t share more information with him.
Serendipitously perhaps, an email just landed in my inbox that caught my attention. GoDaddy Corporate Domains (GCD) will be hosting a webinar to give an overview of blockchain domain names. Here’s what the webinar covers:
Over the last year, questions and interest in blockchain domains (sometimes called decentralized domains, NFT domains, or web3 usernames) have grown considerably. But what are blockchain domains, how do they work, and how are they being used today? Join Tyler Mason, Senior Director of Strategy and Advisory at GCD on Wednesday, December 1 at 10am PT/ 1pm ET as he reviews this technology. Specifically he’ll be covering:
The different types of blockchain domain names
Basics of how they work and how they differ from the traditional namespace
Questions related to trademark abuse and possible future name collisions
Although my chiropractor friend might not be interested in watching this webinar, I am going to sign up for it so I can get more educated.
The 45 minute webinar is free to attend but registration is required. The webinar will be held on December 1 at 1 PM Eastern (10 AM Pacific). There will be a question and answer period at the end if attendees want to ask questions.
